Life Together: Discipleship in an Age of Distraction

Jesus asked us to make disciples. And most of us are doing our best. But it's hard: we live in an age of distraction, where so much competes with the call to follow Jesus, and so much undermines it. Is there a way to break through the noise and confusion, to find a clear and simple path forward? At this year's Pastor's Conference, Ambrose is teaming up with the Flourishing Congregations Institute to offer the latest research on Canadian churches as well as strategies from some of Canada's leading church thinkers and practitioners.

This is one to bring your entire team to.
