Building a Sustainable Weekly Process

In order for us to not burn out we need to pace ourselves, and that pace comes from planning a week that is sustainable. James McMullen from Eastside Christian Church in Anaheim, CA will talk about the processes they have developed to handle their weekend services across several campuses.

Technology... A New Mission Field

2020 has brought a lot of new challenges. For a large church like Ada Bible, the transition to fully being and completely online church wasn’t a difficult pivot for us. But, most churches in our area, especially urban churches in economically challenged areas, were struggling to get services online, to adapt. Our church saw this as an opportunity, a new mission field, and we were able to resource, train, equip, mentor and encourage many churches in our region. That work still continues today. How might we (technical and production folks) help the message of Jesus be shared (more), by sharing our expereince, skills and resources with other churches? One of the fruits I have expereinced is witnessing some of the demonitional, and mega-church/small church walls being broken down as we work together to share the truth of who Jesus is…what we have in common, Jesus, is overcoming the things that seperate us.
