First- You may be asking yourselves, what is gospel fluency?
Gospel Fluency is the ability to be fluent in the gospel, which equips us to speak the gospel in everyday life. We live in a day and age where people are asking questions but we often don’t have the answers. Instead of giving information or transforming hope, we often give people moralism or legalism. We tell people to try harder or to change their behavior but what people need is not behavior modification. They need gospel heart transformation.
As a church we need to grow and learn how to speak the truth of the gospel in everyday stuff of life. To be able to speak the truth of Jesus’s life, Jesus death, Jesus’ resurrection, Jesus present work on our behalf before God the Father and his future return to make all things new.
To become fluent in a new language, you must immerse yourself in it and commit to practicing it, over and over again.
That said, please join us for the Saturate Everyday training in Grand Rapids! It’s for people just like us. This two-day training is led by Jeff Vanderstelt, visionary leader of Saturate and Soma Family of Churches and his team at Saturate.
Saturate EveryDay is specifically designed to help leaders get their co-leaders and people on the same page. At the end of Saturate EveryDay, you will be equipped to foster and strengthen your local community toward gospel saturation with effective goals, practices, and clear steps for creating a plan of action!
