Campinas is a city of one million people in São Paulo state in Brazil. Shannan and I are here for the next few days participating in a church planting conference. There are more than 700 people present for the conference from over 40 denominations in Brazil.
The conference theme is "The Whole Gospel For The Whole City." Tonight, I am sharing my talk, "The Gospel For The Church In The City." I would appreciate your prayers. I will be identifying three questions that every pastor must ask if the gospel is going to be front-and-center in the life of the church.
Speaking of the gospel, recently I saw the video, "The Gospel In Four Minutes," by Jason Petty, aka Humble Beast's Propaganda. While I am not enorsing all of Propaganda's work, this video is outstanding. It is worth watching -- then watching again.
"The Gospel In Four Minutes" can also be a great gospel conversation starter for people in your sphere of relationships. I pray that the Lord uses it to strengthen you in the gospel.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16 ESV
