Many in our churches and world today wonder how our society and culture arrived where we are currently. How can we better understand society in order to reach those who are far from God with the gospel of Jesus Christ? Ministry does not take place in a vacuum, and culture affects how people think and respond to the gospel. This breakout session recording from the 2019 Disciple Making Conference, led by Ashley Allen, provides an understanding of how society moved from a modern to postmodern culture.
Living in a culture where living "set apart" can seem difficult, society communicates it is acceptable to step over boundaries and live as you want. Compromise seems like the only way to function in the world. But Scripture tells believers something different. This breakout session recording from the 2019 Disciple Making Conference, led by Missie Branch, focuses on how those who name the name of Christ can still live according to biblical absolutes without compromising the truth of Scripture.
Sometimes reaching our neighbors with the gospel is hard because life can be messy. How can we reach a woman with the gospel when her life seems to to be falling apart, and we have grown weary?

Sadly, when churches say "single adult," the immediate thought is "not married," and a host of characteristics and reasons for a single status are given. Yet, single adult women are much more diverse than their marital status, and they aren't all the same. However, many don't feel welcome in a church or even that there is a place for them within the body of Christ. This recording from the 2018 NC Baptist Annual Meeting focuses on how to reach the growing demographic of "single women" without viewing them as anomalies.

Denise O'Donoghue // This is an audio recording from a breakout at the 2018 NC Baptist Women's Retreat. Colossians 3:13 tells us we are to forgive each other, whoever has a complaint against us, and to forgive others the same way Christ has forgiven us. But, what if the person who wronged us never asks for forgiveness? The Bible speaks about forgiveness in many different forms and contexts and reminds believers forgiving others is possible because of the forgiveness God has extended to us through His Son, Jesus. This breakout session recording examines Scripture and the biblical basis of forgiveness.

Throughout Scripture it is evident one generation invested the things of God into the generation that followed. God’s heart is not for disciple-making to stop with one generation, but it to follow to the subsequent generations. However, at times we can make this more complicated than it really is. This breakout session recording focuses on a clear understanding of what it means to disciple, or mentor, a sister in Christ and provide practical tips to begin and continue the process.
