2022 Summit: Committed to BE Church!
About the Event
The year 2020 has presented unprecedented challenge for Christ’s Church. Many are asking, “Where do we go from here?”
The 2021 CCLNetwork Summit provides the answer to flourish again.
Restarting church begins with a COMMITMENT TO BE CHURCH! Jesus promised to build HIS church (Matthew 16:18). In just 30 years, the gospel embraced the known world (Colossians 1:6). How could this be? Notice the first word the Holy Spirit used to describe church. “They DEVOTED themselves…” (Acts 2:42). They COMMITTED themselves with intense effort to embrace the apostles teaching, the fellowship, the Lord’s Supper and the prayer.
Come to the Summit and be challenged, inspired and equipped to BE Church!
