Christmas is over and the new year is upon us. What that means for many churches is that D Now is fast approaching. This is an event that many churches have for their students where they gather in small groups at homes for a weekend of intensive bible study. If you are a student pastor preparing for this event I have to ask you if you are ready? If your event is still months away do not worry. You have time. But you do need to begin preparing. One of the first things I would do is gather all of the things you had from last year. Decide what worked and what did not. Then, whether you are a first timer or a veteran, I really encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter and get our planning resources. After you do these things you will be in a good place to begin planning. Over the next few days I will be walking you through the process you may want to follow to make your D Now a successful event. But also, I highly encourage you to refer back to past posts for some great information. This is a wonderful event. I hope you will have one and put the effort into making sure that it is effective.
