What is a “church?” What makes a church “healthy”? Are there certain characteristics of a church that determine its health?
Scripture gives clearly defined structure for the local church - for both the pulpit and the pew. Today, Lead Pastor Matt Walker from Geist Community Church joins Kelli with an invitation! In partnership with 9 Marks and Indianapolis Thological Seminary, GCC’s fall Renew will look at the biblical practices for the local church. Throughout the weekend various pastors will teach on these key characteristics, and how you - no matter your role in your local assembly - are a vital part of supporting and encouraging these characteristics in your local church. Please consider joining our community at this unifying conference.
Mornings with Kelli and Steve helps start your day with spiritual encouragement, fresh conversation on current topics, and Christ-centered music. Join Kelli Thompson and Steve Hocker for updates, weather, community events, interviews, and features, as well as opportunities to join the Christ-centered conversation.
