Where Fear Sees A Crisis, Faith Sees An Opportunity -- Dave Ferguson
Dave Ferguson is an award-winning author, founding and lead pastor of Chicago’s Community Christian Church, a missional multi-site community considered one of the most influential churches in America. Dave is also the visionary for the international church-planting movement NewThing, president of the Exponential Conference, and will be joining us at the Mutliply Vineyard Summit on February 4thand 5th! Dave and his wife Sue have 3 kids and live in the Chicagoland area.
In this episode of the How To Plant A Healthy Church podcast, Dave and our host Michael Gatlin talk a lot about what it looks like to plant churches in a time of pandemic, and how our options change when we have a lens of opportunity vs. crisis. They also discuss Dave’s new book B.L.E.S.S. and the benefits of being with people for the purpose of blessing them and letting God do the work in their hearts.
