Being Lutheran

“Why do Lutherans believe what they say they believe?”  Being Lutheran grew out of a Sunday School curriculum to systematically examine the Book of Concord and the biblical principles on which it is built. This book was itself the result of the very first Lutherans explaining to the world who they are and what they believe.  

Free Lutheran pastors Jason Gudim, Brett Boe, and Brian Ricke unpack biblical truth in twenty minute episodes that are easily accessible for people of all backgrounds.

New Churches

Through our research and analysis of over 600 church planters, we’ve seen a significant value to having a mentor and a coach. Having a coach impacts your worship attendance because accountability leads to productivity. Planters who would meet regularly with a mentor led churches that were almost twice the size of those that had no mentor.

Join Daniel Im, Ed Stetzer, and Todd Adkins as they answer your church planting, multisite, multiplying, leadership development, and discipleship questions.

Cold-Case Christianity

Hosted by J. Warner Wallace, cold-case detective and author of Cold-Case Christianity (A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels).

With the rules of evidence clearly in mind, we examine the case for the existence of God, the reality of dualism, the reliability of the Biblical text, and the deity of Jesus. Along the way we also take a critical look at the nature of the Christian Church in America today.
