Pastors tend to meet their congregants at church or in a home, or perhaps at a neutral site like a coffee shop.

Vocational Liturgies: Discipleship at Work

We continue to encourage pastors to find tools that will help their congregants cultivate their own discipleship in the places where they spend the majority of their lives outside of church each week – their work.

Now What? Practical Ways Churches Help People Connect Sunday to Monday

by Matt Rusten

In preaching, there is always a move from the “what” of the text (exegesis), to the “so what?” of the text (hermeneutics), to the “now what?” (application) for our lives. What is the text saying?
