      Join us for the first 2-day Soma Fastrack in the South!

      Day #1: Story of God

      The Story of God provides the biblical, theological framework out of which we build our theology of the church. For thousands of years, stories and oral traditions were the key means for Jewish and Christian people to learn about and experience God. Soma Communities interacts with the biblical narrative through stories as one of our primary ways of teaching and engaging the Word. Often, we use an ancient Hebrew process, now called Storying. This is proving to be very effective with people of all ages in our media-literate, story-oriented North American context. We interact with these stories as a way to understand, experience and connect with God through his Word in community.

      Day #2 Soma One-Day

      • Gospel Power & Purpose: How are both recipients and participants in the Gospel? Soma Communities is committed to robust Gospel that is both personal and global in it's application.
      • Identity & Rhythms: What is the Church? How should we live? Soma Communities is formed around the gospel, our new identity in Jesus and the rhythms in which he and his followers lived. We will dig deep into these realities.
      • Building a Missional Community: We will discuss how to begun to live in and lead communities of people who are united around a common, local mission in the everyday. Also, how these communities are local expressions of Jesus and his church in the world, living out the gospel in all ways.
