7:00 – 8:00 PM
Leader: Len Wilson
A recent study confirmed the number one reason people join a church is because of the “quality” of the message. But we’ve been talking about the value of a good message for 500 years. So there’s the message and then there’s something that goes with it, which sometimes we find but often times we miss. That something is what I call its “shareability.” If the age of social media has taught us anything, it’s that messages have influence when they’re shared within and through a community. In this session, we’ll explore the keys to what makes a message resonate, take root and change hearts, lives and communities.
