Life On Mission
Join Lionshare & Pastor Dave Buehring for D4 Conference.
D4 is an opportunity for individuals and groups to participate in being ignited to obey the commission of Jesus to reproduce disciple-makers. Surrounded with worship and the building of relationships with others who have the same heart, d4 Conference focuses on envisioning participants to disciple four-generations deep (2Tim.2:2) within their relationships and where in society they’ve been appointed by God to serve.
During D4, emphasis is placed on understanding God’s process of heart transformation, while discovering afresh what it means to follow, hear from and obey Jesus. Each person is also practically equipped with how to effectively use A Discipleship Journey so they can begin reproducing disciples as soon as they finish d4.
D4 Conference will take place at First Baptist Matthews, August 24, 6-9pm & August 25, 9am-4pm.
Materials, lunch & snacks are included in the $10 registration fee.
Child Care is available. (Please provide a sack lunch for each child the day of the conference.)

Pray for Me Campaign
How can we connect more adults with more young people more naturally than ever before?
The Pray for Me Campaign was born out of this question. We believe every young person needs a team of Prayer Champions strategically praying for them. The Pray for Me Campaign creates a vast web of intergenerational relationships for young people and equips adult believers to pass on a sustainable faith to the next generation.
