One of COGOP’s own young pastors and church planters, will be sharing his knowledge and experience on the topic, “Assimilating New Believers”.  Jonathan’s presentation is founded on his experience over the past five years as he and his team planted a multi-racial church in Jersey City, New Jersey.  Through that experience Jonathan has developed a process for first-time churchgoers to become fully assimilated into the life and ministries of the local church. His insights provide biblical, practical guidance on helping first-time attendees move from visitors to contributing members of the local church.

“What would change about your worship service if the Holy Spirit were to depart? Would things continue as usual? It’s amazing the things that can be done without His presence. Truth is, every Sunday there are churches who go through liturgical motions and never engage with the presence of the Holy Spirit. In this webinar we will examine practical inspirational ways we can purposely engage with the presence of the Spirit and demonstrate what a Spirit-Led Church is all about. Terry Mahan’s presentation title is “Engaging the Presence of the Holy Spirit in Your Worship Service”

“If you a pastor of a small church – especially a bi-vocational one – there seems to be an eternal trade off. Every hour spent pastoring is an hour lost to reaching new people and the hour reaching new people is an hour lost pastoring. So what’s a pastor to do? Karl Vater presentation title is “Equipping the poeple you have to reach the people you don’t have.”

Karl Vater | Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Christian Fellowship in Fountain Valley, CA
