Session One: Social Spaces (Jack Smithey)

In this short talk, Jack Smithey explains, from a sociological perspective, the need for social interaction in our lives. We all want deeper connectivity, right? Jack describes the way social spaces make the connection we want possible. 


Session One: Putting the Story Together and the 5 Steps (Jon Shirley)

In this talk, Jon builds on Greg and Jack's talks to describe the transformational journey of Track 2. He uses Social Spaces to emphasize the longing in the worship leaders heart to live a Jesus-shaped life beyond the program space, and explains the difference between valuing a Jesus-shaped life, and prioritizing that way of life daily.  


Session Two: Personal Prayer Plan (Jon Shirley) 

In this short session, Jon helps us move toward prioritizing prayer in our lives by helping us build a personal prayer plan, as a part of the Jesus-shaped Life plan we will curate through the entire Learning Community process.
