iFollow: Life Together in the Way of Jesus

Opening Worship

May 3, 2015 • Rev. TJ Anderson

What does it mean to be The Church of Jesus Christ? As followers of Jesus, we are a people who are on a mission with Jesus. Rev. TJ Anderson addresses the conflict with our individualistic world view and being The Church in Mission. He shares how, as followers of Jesus, we are to live as though everyday life is a mission trip. TJ is the Senior Pastor of Upper Arlington Lutheran Church in Columbus, OH. He is energized and focused to be in mission with Jesus to reach those who do not yet know Him.

Rev. Steve Turnbull explains the Biblical picture of discipleship to Jesus.

Keynote Speaker #2 – Part 1

May 5, 2015 • Rev. Jeremey King

Rev. Jeremey King shares practical disciple-making principles and hard-learned strategies from his experience in launching Radiant Church in order to help us make a habit of sharing our time, resources and relationships with others in our lives. It’s about being there for each other in good or bad situations. It’s intentional instead of additional; a part of one’s life instead of another busy thing to add to an already busy calendar. It’s a mindset. Jeremey is the founding pastor of Radiant Church and serves on the LCMC Ministry Board. He has a passion for seeing people in all walks of their faith be awakened by God’s Word in new ways.
