The Church Renewal Podcast is a production of Flourish Coaching. Flourish exists to set leaders free to be effective wherever God has called them. When pastors and churches get stuck, Flourish Coaches renew their hope int he gospel and help them gain strategic clarity.
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Acts 2:24 ESV
We continue working through our definition of Church Renewal in this episode:
Church Renewal is the process by which a person or church body experiences ... a new prayerfulness ...
Jesus says, "apart from me, you can do nothing," in John 15. Your prayer life will tell you if you believe Jesus or not. Are you praying after you're done praying? Are you and your church praying for unbelievers, by name, and believing that Jesus will work in the hearts and lives of the lost? Tell us about your practice of prayer for the kingdom. Do you want a new experience of prayer? Connect with Flourish on Facebook, Twitter, or on the web.
