This podcast exists to help churches mobilize the women Jesus is giving them to believe the gospel, embrace their callings as women, and become disciple-making forces in their homes, churches, and cities.
51: How the Investment in Women is Bearing Fruit During the Coronavirus Pandemic
The landscape across the globe has changed dramatically in the last two weeks. Churches are creatively embracing how to love and disciple their people, while social distancing is ordered and the threat of sickness present. Seven Mile Road has had to pivot and shift church. In that, there have been evidences of how our work in discipling the women through the Kalos track has readied them for this moment.
Matt and Patti take some time to address the upcoming release of what What Church Can Be in this unique time and why the message of the book is needed more than ever. They also share some on the ground moments of how the whole church is benefiting as women embrace where God has called them and look to serve and love those in need.
50: Patti and Matt Talk About The Release Of 'What Church Can Be'
One of the questions we often get is, "How can we establish the kind of culture at our church where something like Kalos Track or Kalos Team can actually happen?" Well, we wrote a book on that!
In this episode, Patti and Matt talk about the soon-to-be-released "What Church Can Be" book which walks the reader through both the theological vision and boots-to-the-ground practice that has formed the cultural "soil" at Seven Mile Road in which our Kalos work has thrived.
49: Patti Serves in Richmond + Touching Base After a Season of Rest
In this episode, we hear about Patti's weekend serving the women of Remnant Church in Richmond, VA. We also touch base on how the months post-Kalos-Conference have been and what's on the horizon with our work.
Conference: Talk #1 "Women As Forces For Gospel Advance"
Jesus intends for the women in our churches to become holy and feminine forces for gospel advance. In this talk, Patti Rosell cast a big, beautiful, and Biblical vision of this for us.
Conference: Talk #2 "Believe. Adorn. Advance."
Jesus' women have always advanced the gospel by saying "yes!" to the glories of their God-assigned femininity. In this talk, Matthew Kruse surveyed the Scriptures to show how partnership in ministry is driven by a woman wholeheartedly embracing (not denying or muting) her unique callings.
Conference: Talk #3 "Equal and Distinct"
One way of confessing Christ is by delighting in and living out God's creative intentions for us as men and women. In love and wisdom, God created our race male and female, equal yet distinct. In this talk, Matthew Kruse unpacked some of the glory of that reality.
Love this church and this podcast!
Love these people- after listening to the podcast, we came to the Kalos conference from out of state and this church blew us away. Abundant hospitality, deep love and commitment to Christ and honoring Him through raising up women of faith. They exemplified Christ so beautifully, we did not want to leave. Unforgettable trip and an amazing opportunity to learn from this incredible community of believers. Will never forget our time with Seven Mile Road. Thank you for loving radically for Jesus and equipping others to do the same. Your podcast has shaped me and my husband as we seek to live this out in our church, city and family. Thank you!!
An answered prayer
I’m so thankful the Lord let me to this podcast when He did! Our church has been really struggling with how to equip and incorporate women more fully into the the work of the ministry. This struggle has been the subject of many prayers for a long time. The Kalos Conversation vision and model are beautiful, and I believe that they will go a long way into deepening our gospel understanding, relationships, and ability to make disciples. Thank you so much for sharing this invaluable resource!
I am a pastor and church planter and I am so thankful for this podcast. Very helpful. Thank you.
