Global Media Outreach and Godlife Partnership

We want to celebrate a partnership between Global Media Outreach/Godlife and Zúme Training. Global Media Outreach is a leader in online outreach and evangelism around the world. Using advertising and gospel websites they introduce hundreds of thousands of people to the gospel.

As a partner with Zúme we will have the chance to help people who have just made a new decision for Christ to connect with what a disciple is, what a disciple does, and how to bring their friends and family along with them in their journey of faith.

Learn How to Make and Multiply Disciples via Zoom

Awesome effort to build up the body even while in quarantine!

“Sunday nights from March 22 – May 24, 2020. Meet in community with others to learn how to make and multiply disciples using the online, web-driven tool known as Zúme. (Zúme is the Greek word for yeast. By using Zúme, you can impact others just like a little yeast affects a whole loaf of bread!) Already trained in DMM principles and strategies? That’s great. You can help lead one of the “Zoom rooms” for subgroups of 4 people. Curious how your DMM training can be utilized in an online environment, maybe because folks in your context have recently been asked to avoid in-person meetings? This is the opportunity for you to experiment so you can “replicate and multiply” what you learn. “

Just sign up below to receive more info. Joining Doug Lucas in hosting this series will be Eric Derry (Team Expansion), Shawn Walden (Shepherd Church) and several other trainers. We hope to see you there!

Hope During A Global Pandemic (YouVersion)

New bible reading plan on hope regarding the COVID19 pandemic.

These are unprecedented times for those of us who are alive on planet earth at this moment. Historically, we can find hope if we turn to the One who made it all and is Lord of all. What does the Bible say about why these things happen, what is God’s response to it, and what is my hope in life and death?

Launched “Home Church” resource

Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have published a first step guide to hosting a “home church” based on the 3/3 meeting pattern. See the article “How to have church at home“.

We’re thankful for the churches that have taken this and have began adapting it to their congregations! Our network of coaches are happy to help, if your church is one of them.
