New Growth Groups To Begin At Concord Baptist

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Two new Growth Groups at Concord Baptist Church, 7025 East Brainerd Road, are beginning Sunday, April 6th. As usual, these classes will meet on campus each Sunday for six weeks and will start at 9:15 a.m. during the Sunday school hour.

"Biblical Counseling" will be led by Will Dragoo. This six-week seminar will help everyday Christ-followers gain an understanding of what biblical counseling is and why it is so important. This seminar will also equip Christ-followers with basic biblical counseling tools in the context of community at Concord.

"Personal Evangelism" will be led by Todd Van Dyke. This seminar will teach us how to "praise what we prize", how to lean into God's sovereign hand at work in our evangelism, and how to move from Gospel "stump-speeches" to being winsome ambassadors for Christ.
