Ed Stetzer from the U.S. will be joining us at Connect Gauteng on Tuesday, 16 July at Cornerstone Church Bedfordview.
Ed is the lead pastor of Grace Church in Hendersonville, Tennessee (U.S.) and also the president of LifeWay Research, which helps churches impact their culture for the Gospel in various ways. He has pastored several churches and trained church planters on six continents. He is well known for his work in helping churches be more missional as well as his work in revitalising declining churches.
Ed comes recommended by R.T. Kendall. Mark Driscoll has also called him “one of the greatest missional church researchers.” Rick Warren says he is a “successful pastor, church planter, researcher, and adviser to thousands of churches, who speaks from a wealth of experience with all kinds of churches”.
Ed spends much of his time travelling and speaking at conferences and churches about church growth, church planting, and missiology.
