Gospel Shaped Church is a new curriculum based on the five characteristics of gospel ministry that lie at the heart of The Gospel Coalition that will help whole congregations pause and think carefully and prayerfully about the kind of church they are called to be.
This seven-week whole-church resource explores what it means to be a counter-cultural community that lives as a light in the darkness. This Leader's Kit contains everything you need to evaluate, plan, promote and run an engaging and immersive program with your church.
Inside the Leader Kit box you will find a copy of the Leader's Guide, a copy of the Member's Handbook and a copy of the DVD containing seven teaching sessions presented by Vermon Pierre (running time: 140 minutes). Please note, this DVD is available in NTSC format only (All modern DVD players play NTSC in the UK).
There is also a Quickstart Guide which lays out a variety of ways in which the material could be used within your own church context, some ideas for creating a church bulletin to promote the course in your church, and a code that will allow you to download a digital copy of the DVD for free.
How should Christians live? The church should be a distinctive community of God's people--but how different are we from the rest of the world? This track helps us untangle some of the false ideas and traditions that evangelicals have had in the past, and reveals the more deeply challenging picture that emerges from Scripture.
This flexible resource will train your whole church through teaching, preaching, daily reading and small-group Bible study and discussion--or any combination of those elements. The overall aim is that your church will embark on a journey to discover the kind of people they should be as they are shaped by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
