The Engaging Church Seminar Is On-Line at the NTA Website!

engaging_church_250w.jpgThe North Texas Area has purchased a license from Church Growth, Inc. that allows us to present the complete video from its "Engaging Church" seminar in our secure Member Portal for the clergy and laity of the North Texas Area.

The online seminar is available to you and anyone in your church without charge.

Recorded in front of a live audience in a one-day seminar format, this seminar will discuss how to attract outsiders, connect visitors and integrate new members; it is a fast-paced six-session online seminar offering the latest practical tools for effective outreach and church growth.

The Engaging Church Seminar and the NTA Member Portal are available to anyone in the North Texas Area, both clergy and laity. We will provide Member IDs to anyone in the NTA upon request.

In addition to all six full-length videos, we will provide the seminar workbook, session summaries and an area-wide on-line discussion forum for talking about each session of the seminar.

You might even want to get a group together in your church, have each member of the group view the seminar at home and then meet several times to discuss its application in your church. We will provide individual Member IDs to each member of your group so that can have their own access to view the seminar any time they wish.

Also, Larry Ross is available to visit your church in a follow-up capacity to help interpret and apply the principles of this seminar in a holistic way.

Member Portal Registration Will Be Required for Access
As part of the terms of our license for providing access to this seminar, we must restrict access to only the clergy and laity of the North Texas Area.

We have set up a secure password-protected Member Portal at the NTA website where you can view the seminar plus any additional material that we may present from time to time in the future.

All you have to do is register into the Member Portal. There is no charge for registration and viewing the seminar is free. You may also provide free access to other members of your church.

Registration is simple and easy; it only takes a few seconds to complete.


You May Request a Member ID To Be Sent To You
The Member Portal is available to anyone who is a member of a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the North Texas Area.

You may apply for a Member ID by clicking here and completing the electronic form. Typically, we will process your application with 24 hours if submitted during normal business hours. Once you receive your Member ID, simply follow the instructions to complete the on-line registration and you will have immediate access to the Engaging Church Seminar and the Area-wide discussions.
