What summer webinar topics would you suggest?

April 5, 2012

As you know, 3DM has started doing webinars in the last couple of months and we have seen quite a number of people attend these webinars. We’ve done them on church planting, how to use the Bible in a missional church, raising kids who love Jesus, marriage and mission and many, many others.

We are looking to begin planning our summer webinar schedule and we’d love your help.

What topics would you suggest we cover this summer? What would be most helpful?

Would love any input you have! Feel free to comment below.

    resources for discipleship; “different strokes for different folks”, what’s out there for our particular environment; people, place, culture?

    As we work towards launching a second and third campus at City Church Eastside in Atlanta, I’d love to see a focus on first steps. In planting our first church, we created missional communities before we had developed discipling leaders for each of them. We don’t want to put the cart before the horse as we plant going forward.

    How do you recruit your first discipleship huddle? I’ve seen our discipleship pastor gather unchurched neighbors first into a journey into fellowship and community through gathering around supper and conversation. Then they journeyed deeper into a learning community as they studied Prodigal God together. Now he is inviting them into a journey to discipleship as a huddle and stepping into missional service in the community. That looks like an organic process, but I am curious if this misses important foundational steps to church-planting.

    To the extent that you have already covered this in webinars, sorry for missing, and if it’s available to review, send me a link. Thanks,

    Missional communities and global missions. How do they relate, or do they?

    The language of invitation. I find it difficult to invite people to what we’re doing (huddle/MCs) because I explain too much or too little. Would love to hear more of tips and tricks for approaching, sharing, and inviting.

    Dear Mike

    Thank God for the wonderful movement started in Sheffield. Praise Jesus.
    Thanks for your 3 lessons from one hour! on Vimeo
    In Holland we try to implement the Clusters into our culture and churches and we are at the very beginning of it.
    We are trained by Paul and Richard in an LC organized by Nederland zoekt …
    Topics which can ignite fire in the hearts of people so they become pioneers and early adopters could be a big help. Some sugestions; topics ‘why a huddle is of great importance.’ or ‘how the huddle changed me into a cluster leader’ or ‘my first experience with the Cluster Out Dimension.

    May God bless you to continue the great work he started by you and 3DM

    I’d love to hear from those who has implemented this into long-established churches of over 750+ people. I’m just wondering if the dynamics in churches with well defined cultures and larger congregations are different from younger churches or churches that are small to medium size. If they are different, what has been effective in re-defining the culture around discipleship.

    What to do if there appears to be a dearth of Pioneers in your immediate congregational context.

    An example or two of the impact of a local church’s Discipling/Missional growth upon its denomination. (Positive impact, hopefully!!)

    Tips for starting Huddles with the 2nd generation of post-congregation here in New England.

    How to live into this model if you don’t have a clean congregational slate. You have old guard, moneyed members who want to live in 1954 and force the pastor to pretend that the emperor is wearing clothes. (OK, that’s a small rant but I would really like to know how to live into this transition without continuing to develop ulcers)

    What about the kids? What can MC’s look like for the 4’s and older? Can it be more than play time in a seperate room/ being seen and not heard? Can they have their own MC experience? What reasources do you use? Who leads?

    Two very different topics:

    1. Planting a church using Huddle’s and MC’s and money management (Tithe, Offering).
    2. How to lead up! How to create a discipleship culture in a existing large organization where you are not in senior leadership?

    Thanks all for these wonderful suggestions! We’re in the midst of scheduling Q2 webinars and you’ve given us a lot to think about! We’ll update you soon with the 3DM summer webinar schedule, so be on the lookout. You’ll see many (if not all!) of these topics addressed.
