Cultural Awareness in Discipleship

A growing number of churches have been captured by the vision of every tribe, tongue and nation being represented in their churches.  In an effort to promote this Kingdom in our churches the rudimentary elements of what it means to do church and ministry must be reconsidered in light of John’s Revelation 7:9-10 vision. Discipleship is one of those fundamental Christian tasks that we need to reimagine to consider the cultural dynamics that come into play.

This podcast was recorded during a breakout session at the 2018 Baptist State Convention of North Carolina Annual Meeting.
