Jackson UMC is hosting a 7-session Church Growth Conversation, based on the book, “Lasting Impact” by Carey Nieuwhof. Pastor Joseph Tiedemann will lead the sessions and extends the following invitation for you to join the conversation.
7 powerful conversations that will help our church grow
Over the next 7 months, I am inviting you to participate in 7 dialogs that are designed to position our churches for growth in ways that will have a positive impact on our members, families, and communities.
Each month we will gather on Saturday evenings at Jackson UMC from 6-8pm to have fellowship and discussion around the corresponding conversations in the book. We are happy to provide child-care, please sign-up for it.
You can participate in the conversations without reading the chapter, although you will be able to have much deeper conversations if you have read the chapter ahead of time. Each section is about 30 pages.
