- Section Communities -

From the beginning of the Bible to the end, it’s a story of community. God deeply values community.

We understand that in a larger church it can be very difficult to get connected. We also understand that small groups can be an intimidating place to start, and our worship gatherings are so large it can be challenging to actually meet people. So that’s where section communities come in–essentially, section communities are made up of people who connect weekly by sitting in the same section of the auditorium when we gather together as the church.

God doesn’t just want to do something in you as you gather with the church, he also wants to do something through you in the lives of others around you. We encourage you to come a little bit earlier or stay a few minutes later and have a conversation.

Agora Fellowship

New Sessions Begin Each Fall

Leadership for the Common Good

In ancient Greek, the agora was a gathering place in the middle of a city that served as the center for commerce, politics, education, the arts, religion and civic life. What happened in the agora shaped the society as a whole. Not much has changed. Today the ideas and practices that flow from the academies, churches/temples/synagogues, businesses, houses of government and studios profoundly change and shape the society in which we live.

Purpose
The Agora Fellowship equips young professionals to integrate their Christian commitment and vocation enabling them to impact their professions for God’s kingdom and to be agents of cultural renewal.

Description
The Fellowship is a nine-month intensive program designed to provide young professionals with a solid base of theological, ethical and cultural understanding. Through weekly readings and discussions, monthly gatherings, and one-on-one mentoring with a mature person in their profession, Fellows will develop as influential leaders in their professions who can serve effectively as ambassadors for God’s kingdom and contribute to the common good locally, regionally, nationally and even internationally.

Requirements include:
· Complete weekly readings
· Attend and participate in weekly discussions over the readings
· Attend monthly gatherings to meet with guest speakers or go on excursions in and around the city of Lincoln
· Complete 2-3 written assessments over the course of the nine months
- Book fee of approximately $140

Who should apply?
Men and women, 25-35 years of age, working in fields including higher education, law, medicine, the sciences, media, arts, government and business/finance. The applicant should (1) be currently employed full-time, (2) have at least a year of working experience in his or her profession, (3) possess clear and strong Christian commitment and character and (4) desire to use his or her position of leadership to influence the culture for God’s kingdom and the common good.

If you'd like to hear more about the Agora Fellowship, check out our promotional video.

Click here to apply. Application deadline – August 21.

Staying Alive Short Term Missions Trip

Madrid, Spain // October 10-18, 2017

We have a great opportunity lined up to experience the work of God outside the U.S. and to grow deeper in our discipleship to Jesus while serving those in need in Madrid, Spain. At the same time, we will build connections among the Staying Alive community as we seek to strengthen the link between Lincoln Berean Church and the country of Spain.

The short term missions team will be working with Serve the City (STC). STC was founded by Warren and Karen Batt in 2012 with a twofold intention: First, in obedience to Jesus, to mobilize the Church to care for the physical needs of Madrid’s most vulnerable populations. Second, STC encourages believers and non-believers alike to serve, to allow the act of serving to provide evangelistic opportunities among the service teams themselves. Best estimates would indicate that less than 1% of Spain (and Madrid) identify as Evangelicals. Of those who do identify, many are already churched immigrants from Latin America. This means that among Spaniards, it is estimated that the Evangelical population is 0.1% of the total population.

All participants will be required to attend 3-4 meetings in September to prepare for the missions trip. The estimated cost of the trip is around $2000 - $2400.
