Leadership Luncheon


LEADERSHIP LUNCHEON: Preaching the Gospel in a New World

February 24, 2022 • 11:00 a.m.

Greenville Community Church • 38 David Street, Greenville 29609

It is a new world where everything we knew has been turned on its head.  It is a day Paul described in 2 Timothy 4, “A time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching.  They will follow their own desires and look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.  They will reject the truth and chase after myths.”  How do we preach the gospel effectively in such a world?  How do we proclaim truth without appearing judgmental and driving away the very people we are trying to reach?  That is the topic of this Leadership Luncheon.  Join us as we worship together and hear a bold challenge from Rev. Sean Dogan at 11:00.  Then, we will engage in a panel discussion on preaching the gospel in a new world with several of our own preachers.  You may join in the discussion as well.  Lunch is free, but you need a reservation.
