Human beings were made for living in community, and it is in community that we flourish. However, life in any community is challenging and we often lack the skills and virtues that make life together good. In a deeply fractured world, the recovery of practices that build and sustain community is particularly important to our Christian life and witness. We don’t always recognize how important it is that those who follow Jesus are known for our hospitality and welcome, fidelity and truthfulness, and gratitude and grace.

In this Q&A webinar Christine Pohl and JR Woodward will explore YOUR questions about life together in community as it relates to church planting.

Please email your questions when you register. Questions may be sent by June 15 to: tonya@thev3movement.org
