It is all too common to miss Jesus in the day-to-day grit of life and ministry. Yet in the midst of our stresses, conflicts, and shattered dreams as ministry leaders—Jesus is still there. We are secure in Christ. The very good news that sent us into the world to serve in the first place, is the same good news we need to hear and see again.

During The Gospel Coalition’s 2017 National Conference , Serge will lead a two-part series (over two breakfasts) to point us to ways the gospel of Jesus transforms our hearts and secures our foundations as children of God, even as we serve others.

This is an excellent event for couples or a group of ministry friends to attend together. Opportunity will be given for conversation in smaller groups.

All participants will be able to sign up for one session of one-on-one Mentoring with experienced Serge Sonship Mentors.

No ministry has given me a greater understanding of the gospel; love for, and dependence on Jesus; and passion for taking the gospel to my neighbors and the nations than Serge.

Serge invites people to enter into the brokenness of their need and also the brilliance of how they were crafted—to become who they were meant to be and live out the Kingdom of God on behalf of others.
