Series: Together
Episode 1 (Part 2) — Together as a Church
Living in togetherness is always a part of following Jesus. It wasn’t optional for Jesus. It wasn’t optional for the first apostles. It wasn’t optional for the first Christians, and it’s not optional for us!

Too many church leaders, particularly pastors (in both big churches and small), are leading a church but are not really a part of the church. They are the upfront presence behind the pulpit or on the stage, but when it comes to actually doing life with people in the pews, they are absent.

In this webinar , Matt Carter (Lead Pastor of Sagemont Church) and Chad Clarkson (co-founder & Executive Director of the Houston Church Planting Network) will explain that for us to fulfill the Great Collaboration we must be church leaders who live in togetherness and lead in togetherness with our churches.

We are better together!

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
John 17:22-23
