The New Realities of Engaging Newcomers (24:02) By Dr. Lovett H. Weems, Jr., distinguished professor of church leadership and director of the Lewis Center
Increasingly there is no single pattern for how people enter, engage, and join congregations. This presentation describes a paradigm shift in how new people come into the life of churches and the implications of these changes for ministries of evangelism and hospitality.
How Newcomers Can Renew the Church (20:58) By Rev. Asa J. Lee, assistant director for programs of the Lewis Center

This presentation explores the theological significance of a new paradigm of welcome that embraces the ways newcomers can transform the church, rather than expecting the church to transform them.
