Jeff Vanderstelt on the Many Ways of Sharing Your Faith

February 3, 2012

One of the best training resources available via Soma Communities is learning the “story-formed way” (go here and here for downloadable resources).  In this video interview with Scott Thomas of Acts 29, Jeff Vanderstelt shares on the many ways of sharing the gospel, beginning with gospel fluency and confidence in the gospel’s work in your own life–past, present, and future.  This is really help and totally unlike the evangelism training I received years ago.  Check it out.

Jeff Vanderstelt on Gospel Fluency, Missional Communities, and Hospitality in America

July 1, 2011

Several months ago, NewFrontiers interviewed Jeff Vanderstelt leading up to their conference, and below are three parts of the interview, focusing on gospel fluency, meaning of missional, and hospitality. These are some critical issues for the church today, and Jeff is one of the best at addressing them.  Check out these short videos:

Soma Communities | Reorientation Around the Mission

May 5, 2011

Over the past two years, Soma Communities ranks in the top five resource centers that have helped me in theology and practice, in particular as it relates to gospel, community, and mission.  Jeff Vanderstelt and Caesar Kalinowski are careful theologians and seasoned practitioners who are consistently forwarding the vision of what it means to be gospel communities on mission.  Below is a video of Jeff Vanderstelt talking about their passion and orientation around the mission of the church with gospel intentionality.

Jeff Vanderstelt on Gospel Centrality

December 18, 2010

Few evangelical leaders have done more to promote gospel centrality than Soma Communities, and in particular Jeff Vanderstelt and Caesar Kalinowski. If you are new to Soma, here’s a good place to start.  You can also access a wealth of gospelicious audio (to borrow Scotty Smith’s term) from their archives (especially check out their stuff from Soma School).

Below is a brief interview where Justin Anderson asks Jeff Vanderstelt about what does it mean to be gospel-centered and how it affects us having an outward focus.  Check it out.

GCM Everyday Audio

November 26, 2010

Last month, he GCM Collective held a one-day training focused on the gospel, community, and mission in everyday contexts.  Steve Timmis and Tim Chester has a new book coming out soon on the “ordinary” church–living as gospel communities on mission in everyday life, not just Sunday’s.  The audio from this one-day conference is not available, so check them out!

There are some additional resources that you can check out here.  I also recommend that you check out their online community, which is a great place to learn with/from others.

Soma Communities: Living Inside the Gospel Story

September 17, 2009

I’ve mentioned a couple of times already that I’m currently teaching through The Gospel-Centered Life, and if you haven’t checked it out already, I encourage you to do so.  While supplementing my reading/listening of gospel-centered resources, I came across a series of messages at Soma Communities called “Living Inside the Gospel Story.”  It appears that this series may be an early version of The Gospel-Centered Life curriculum, and the messages are delivered by Jeff Vanderstelt. In any case, I think these messages would be an encouragement to those of you seeking a radical reorientation around the gospel of Jesus.

Below are the links to the downloadable audio (PDF notes are in parenthesis).

2. Gospel Viewpoints (notes)
