Unleashed for the Gospel

2009 RightNow Conference

This 56-minute session from the 2011 RightNow Conference is an opportunity for us to focus on how we unleash the power of the gospel in the people we lead. J.D. Greear, Lead Pastor of the Summit Church in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina, reminds us that the only way God will use us to transform the world, is if we are first transformed by the gracious gift God has given to us through Jesus Christ.

As you watch, take notes and write down thoughts about how this message can impact your ministry.

J.D. reminded us that if we lose the gospel message, we lose it all—don’t let the good things we do obscure the only thing. Do we have a balance of doing good deeds and sharing the gospel outside the walls of our church? What are some examples of our ministries that do both? Are there ways we can improve?

As our lives, our small groups, and our ministries are shaped by the gospel, God will use us to transform the world. Jayne’s story is an inspiring example of the transformational power of the gospel of Jesus Christ alive in a person’s life—and the impact that has on those around us.
