Level 300 Course

The Kingdom Focused Church

The third session of the First Baptist Church Woodstock Church Planting School will cover the "Kingdom Focused Church". Every pastor and church planter wants his church to grow up and ultimately reproduce with a Kingdom mindset and Kingdom minded churches. In this third installment of the Church Planting School the pastor and church planter will be exposed to the issues they will face as the church matures and takes on greater responsibility for its own community but also for the world.

The first session will cover how the church begins to establish a "Kingdom Mindset".

What the church thinks about the work of the Kingdom will have a dramatic affect on what the church actually does. Without a Kingdom Mindset systems and structures will be of little value.

The next session will address the issues of "Developing Long-term Partnerships" and "Finding Your Church's Sweet Spot...that unique quality that sets you apart from all others".

The Last sessions will cover "Reproducing Kingdom Minded Churches".

The process of starting a new church can be overwhelming but it need not be. In these sessions the topics of the "when", "where", "who", "how much" will be examined. Processes will be introduced and shared as well as questions being answered.


Prerequisite(s): None. All churches and church plants may register. If you have questions, please contact Bill Agee for more information.
