The Next Round Begins September 14
The Church had already begun to lose its privileged place in the center of Western Culture—and that was before the Pandemic of 2020 changed everything!
What churches need now isn't better preaching or programming - instead we need an ancient secret - the "secret of Issachar”. This secret was the ability to understand the moment we live in, anticipate where we are heading, and lead accordingly.
In this Resilient Church Academy Master Class, your guides Drs. Len Sweet and Michael Beck will introduce you to Issachar's secret, Contextual Intelligence, and teach you practical ways it can equip your church to be prepared for today and the days ahead.
Register now and you'll receive access to this exclusive live event, as well as a hardcover copy (shipped to you) of Len and Michael’s new book - Contextual Intelligence: Unlocking the Ancient Secret to Mission on the Front Lines.
Leonard Sweet is a scholar of American culture, a visionary leader who "sees things the rest of us do not see." He is a frequent guest lecturer at seminaries, university campuses, and leadership events. He is the author of more than 60 books, 1,500 published sermons, and 200 published articles.
Michael Adam Beck is Director of Re-Missioning for Fresh Expressions US. Michael serves as co-pastor of Wildwood UMC with his wife Jill, where they direct addiction recovery programs, a jail ministry, a food pantry, an interracial unity movement, and a network of 13 Fresh Expressions that gather in Tattoo parlors, dog parks, salons, running tracks, community centers, and burrito joints. Michael holds a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary and a Doctorate in Semiotics and Future Studies from Portland Seminary.
