The Kingdom Alliance has
posted the audio from Gary’s talk (*Update: 5/11/2011, the Kingdom Alliance website is unfortunately no longer available) last night for all to hear at no cost. It is definitely worth the time to listen to it. Those who came to the event last night expecting to hear a talk on better money management, budgets and numbers were surprised at what Gary had to say. Not only did he address the issues of the heart, but he also dealt with what he characterizes as misconceptions that have been perpetuated by church teachings regarding money. Based upon the content of last night’s talk, the remainder of the conference promises to be significant.
The conference continues with meetings tonight (Friday) at 7pm and Saturday at 9am. The meetings are being held at the facility belonging to the First Church of the Nazarene, 3375 Fruitville Road in Sarasota.
If you’re not familiar with who they are, The Kingdom Alliance is a group of 5 congregations who have joined forces to increase their impact on the communities of Sarasota & Bradenton. This type of cooperation among church leadership is quite rare in a landscape filled with competition over what some experts would describe as a dwindling pool of potential congregants. This is the first community event that they have publicized, and it’s a good taste of things to come!
