Olu Brown: Leading Your Church Toward “Destiny Living” Instead of “Default Living”
We almost titled this webinar, “Getting on The Right Side.”
At age 17, while giving the eulogy at his grandfather’s funeral, Rev. Olu Brown heard what he later realized was an audible call to ministry: “It was a heart-strangely-warmed moment for me,” he said. “I feel deeply committed and called to shepherding people along a path that helps them to discover their own faith.”
Today, Brown is living out that call and bearing fruit. He started Impact Church (a United Methodist congregation) in 2007, and by 2016, the Atlanta-area congregation worshipped more than 2,000 each week and had become one of the fastest growing church in America.
“In the 21st century, people are craving real relationships,” Brown said when asked about the keys to church growth. They crave real relationships from recreational places and also from spiritual places. “Churches that are growing are first concerned about the heart of a person more than anything else.”
In this session, Olu will focus is on John 21, when Jesus tells the disciples to throw their net on the right side of the boat to catch fish. It is a metaphor for change and being willing to try something new.
During this webinar, Olu will share his thoughts on how to challenge people to live their destiny and not their default lives, especially as they are experiencing all of the changes and chaos in the world.
In addition to admission to the live session, registrants will receive an audio recording and CEU Certificate following the class.
