NACC: better disciples and Bible tools

Posted in better disciples, NACC, servant-leader at 11:10 PM by alexlozada

More NACC take-aways from disciples a step or ten ahead of me in walking w/ the Word:

Chatted w/ Jon Weatherly (friend and NT professor @ Cincinnati Christian University) about his blog – check this recent post about free resources available from Institute for Christian Research, one of which is his lectures on Introduction to the Gospels.

As an example of the “making connections” that happens at gatherings like the NACC, MCC teammate and co-blogger Ethan Magness mentioned ICR director & Ozark Christian College NT professor Mark Moore’s How to Read and Study the Bible (soon to be available to MCC small group leaders via our Adult Small Groups resource library).

I also had the privilege of sitting next to Bruce Shields at the European Evangelistic Society Walker Lectures breakfast (thanks to my host MCC lead pastor Ben Cachiaras).  Bruce’s influence led Ben to prompt me to explore storying as teaching method for MCC small groups.

These connections were just a fraction of the many at the NACC – no wonder it’s titled The Connecting Place.
