Unbinding the Gospel Event

Unbinding the Gospel Event- March 1, 2014

The following series of videos were taken from the “Unbinding the Gospel, Unbinding our Hearts” March 1 EVANGELISM Event sponsored by the Metro and Uwharrie Districts.

The afternoon presentations are complete with worksheets to help your congregation take steps to reach new people and set strong goals. The afternoon presentations are covered in videos four, five, six, seven, and eight. (Lowell McNaney, Kyle Thompson, Daniel Corpening and Dave Zietlow, Mark Appleyard, Chris Campbell, and Jimmie Surratt)

The opening two videos contain an opening testimony and inspirational message about getting out of our churches and reaching new people for Christ. We are reminded again of the power of a simple invitation. Great videos to share with your Leadership Teams. (Bobby Dionne, Reverend Sharma Lewis)

The third video is a presentation of the “Unbinding the Gospel” series, a powerful resource for your congregation to use. Instructions follow this video if you are interested in pursuing this transformational study. (Nichole MacMillan)
