    Engaging Members into Service

    Engaging Members into Service

    How do you get your church members involved? By allowing them to dream and to serve. In this podcast, our host, Jose Cortes Jr., talks to Paulo Macena about finding creative ways to involve members in service and the importance of encouraging them to dream big dreams for God's church. Engaging all members into service is a new approach to evangelism that puts ministry back where it's supposed to be—in the hands of local church members. Everyone can do something to hasten the coming of Jesus!

    Paulo Macena is the lead pastor for Ellicott City SDA Church and Urban Life Center, a Baltimore Center of Influence, in the Chesapeake Conference. To connect with Paulo and know more about his ministry go to www.ellicottcity.church

    Present Truth Only Through Present Trust

    Present Truth Only Through Present Trust

    Jose and Dustin Hall dive deep into some principles that will keep your church from becoming irrelevant. They go into how “our message” is something that helps us to lead people to a person, who is Jesus, not just a code of truth, that when referred to as “our message” makes us become insanely defensive and leaves other people out. Here, Dustin also explains his concepts: “you can’t love people you don’t know and you can’t change people you don’t love” as well “the ministry of the word without the ministry of presence is no ministry at all…”

    Dustin Hall is the pastor of the Port Charlotte Adventist Church in Florida. When he recorded this podcast he was the pastor of Grace Outlet Church and led the GO Community Center in Reading, Pennsylvania. For more info on Port Charlotte Adventist Church go to: @pcsdachurch on Facebook.

This podcast is such a breath of fresh air. Relevance, practicality and innovation in one place. I listed to one episode and subscribed. Can’t wait to hear them all.
