Monday, September 28 at 2:00 p.m. ET
An Online, Interactive, Weekly Show, Tackling Current Issues Facing Pastors and Planters
Episode 7 — Glocal Church Planting
Join us for Episode 7 with co-hosts Peyton Jones and Daniel Yang as they interview Dr. Bob Roberts, Jr., founder of GlocalNet.
Roberts will discuss topics such as:
- How local church pastors can build practical relationships with leaders of other religious communities
- How smaller churches can get started working with missions overseas and reasonable expectations for a small church
- What he is learning from the world that churches in North America really need to pay attention to?
- How to measure success in missions
- And more!
“The message of Jesus is the Kingdom of God is here, now, and within you,” writes Roberts. “My question is not what will God do in the future but how am I letting the Kingdom live in this moment as I meet this person, as invitations come.”
The Frontlines program seeks to encourage and equip pastors and planters to better understand and navigate the current and future trends in church ministry. Hosted by veteran church multiplication leaders, each episode invites thought leaders and advanced practitioners in ministry to inform and inspire pastors and planters as they continue in day-to-day ministry.
The uncertainty, stress, and loneliness affecting church planters and pastors seems like it is at an all-time high. Each week, church leaders are faced with more and more complex issues to solve and decisions to make. And, even the best decisions made by church leadership teams seem to only result in more uncertainty and questioning by their congregation. This 12-episode weekly show will host conversations on the current issues church leaders are facing. Being on the frontlines of Kingdom advancement as pastor or church planter is a constant barrage of uncertainty and challenges.
