A Gospel That Feels Like Good News

When our Gospel is focused merely on the after-life, today’s unchurched find our message irrelevant, and possibly intolerant. In this webinar, discover a clear, field-tested way to present a larger vision of the Gospel — one closer to what Jesus taught.

Learn why the big story — including the essential phrases designed for good; damaged by evil; restored for better; and sent together to heal — connects with friends who live in an increasingly unchurched culture and encourages believers to share a faith that truly feels like good news.


  • Explore how to tell a better story of the Gospel.
  • Engage the history of how the Gospel has felt like bad news.
  • Receive a tested tool for equipping others.
  • Discern how the Good News is heard in differing contexts.
