Playing to Strengths—ER 1

I really appreciate the intentionality behind Steven Furtick’s evangelistic preaching. This segment refers to his approach and depth of content—and resulted in some great feedback about strengths and spiritual gifts. Take a look at how Steven responds.


Correction is Needed, but from the Right People—ER 1

In this clip, Matt Chandler reminds us there is error in both the orthodoxy and evangelistic camps. Perry Noble agrees that doctrinal error needs to be called out but with some good suggestions for who and how. David Platt concludes with a great challenge about the importance of the purity of the gospel. GREAT clip! Love it.
