On this week’s episode, Brian and Chris join Brian Dembowczyk, the Managing Editor of The Gospel Project. The three tackle the following questions:
- “Gospel” is a buzzword right now in the church world. What does it mean to be “gospel-centered”?
- How does failing to study Scripture as one gospel story lead to moralism?
- How does a group leader help create a “gospel culture” in a small group?
- Is it important to know how all Scripture points back to Jesus? How can a small group leader consistently do that during discussions?
- What is different about The Gospel Project curriculum? What is coming for The Gospel Project this fall?
