September Topic

Gen Z

For centuries, reaching the next generation is crucial for the church. Do you believe Generation Z is interested in Jesus? Many do, and this month we are trying to discover how to best reach them with the gospel. 

August Topic

in the gospel

In the month of August we are focusing in on the importance of partnerships we share across the state in order to move the gospel of Jesus Christ forward. Associational and convention partnerships. Church planting partnerships. A partnership of one church with two languages and the same gospel and mission. We truly can do much more together than we can apart.

July Topic

Building Amazing Leadership Teams

What makes a good team? In sports, if you don’t have team chemistry, you’re not going very far. In business, it’s just as difficult. Inc. Magazine found that “only 1 in 5 hires are considered successful”.

So, what makes a good church leadership team? How do we take the guesswork out of our search processes and find the right fit for the right time? During July, we will have new articles each week that will address this subject.

June Topic

Co-Vocational Ministry

Many Christians see their work as nothing more than a necessary evil. They don’t understand how their “ordinary” everyday life is part of the mission of God. However, a proper and biblical understanding is that all Christians are called to “full-time ministry,” doing work well for the glory of God, regardless of their specific vocation (1 Corinthians 10:31).

May Topic

at home

Culture aims to offer tips and tricks to families on parenting, marriage, and education. As Christians, how do we need to go back and test this advice against God’s Word? By doing this, it provides the framework needed to filter the new things we hear and see.

April Topic

Navigating Cultural Divides in your Church

As ambassadors of Jesus, we must acknowledge that faithfulness to him requires us to communicate the gospel truth in a way that honors how Jesus modeled the great commission. What we say, how we say it, and when we say it all matter if we want to be an effective witness to the message and character of Jesus in our current cultural climate. 

March Topic

Church Growth

What comes to mind when we think of church growth? Are we only thinking numerically?

Momentum looks deeper into this subject to be reminded that we must live each day in faithful obedience to God and allow God to build His Church!
