Welcome to Broadcast
Welcome to Broadcast. Our heart is to multiply God's mission by serving and equipping those on the front line. We have created a suite of courses, articles, podcasts, videos, books and live events to train those involved in or exploring church planting, cross-cultural mission, multisite church and other areas of pioneering kingdom ministry. We have brought together a range experienced practitioners and multiplying leaders to impart their experience and expertise, and we have built a platform that puts community right at the heart of your learning.
SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY
School of Theology is a theology training course based in Manchester that runs through the whole Bible over two years as well as delving into some key theological topics. Take this course to catch up with the the audio recordings of the sessions as well as the handouts and learn at your own pace.
INTRODUCTION TO PREACHING
This course is designed for anybody interested in preaching. We look at how to understand a Bible passage, how to turn that understanding into a well written preach and how to deliver that sermon. It is a valuable course for both aspiring preachers and those with considerable pulpit experience.
CHANGE FOR GROWTH
Change management is a pivotal skill for leaders of all levels to develop and to go on developing. In this series of webinars, we particularly focus in on the key moments in the process of change for established church leaders, joined by some special guest coaches and change practitioners.
Over the last few years, many churches have adopted or considered adopting a multisite model. With this comes big opportunities, but at the same time there are also big challenges. In this course we talk to some multisite leaders about the central questions you may be thinking about as you embark on your multisite journey.

FATHERING LEADERS, MULTIPLYING MISSION (by David Devenish)
A unique book addressing the biblical requirement for apostles and their role in shaping todays church in fathering leaders and motivating mission. One of the sad factors of church life is that many pastors are lonely and their heart cry is for a fathering style of relationship, where they can be cared for pastorally, as well as mentored in the development of gifts and practical skills for their ministry.
MULTIPLANTING (by Colin Baron)
Many church leaders believe that the most effective way to fruitful kingdom ministry is by growing a large church, but what if this big church dream is actually inhibiting us from seeing the quantity and quality of impact that we long for? Over the last twenty-five years of ministry in Manchester, England, Colin Baron has been pioneering a different approach; planting smaller, inter-connected congregations throughout the city that operate together as one church. Strong enough together for each survive and thrive, and yet small and dispersed enough to penetrate into the region in a way that growing one big church would never be able to do. Multiplanting describes the journey Colin, and his team at Christ Church, have been on to fulfil a vision of multiplying church congregations across one region of northern England.
DEMOLISHING STRONGHOLDS (by David Devenish)
David Devenish shares insights drawn from many years of personal experience in helping people break free from strongholds that have bound them. In this no-nonsense guide, he gives us effective strategies for spiritual warfare which include: Having a biblical model for understanding the enemy's strategies and dealing with them. Keeping a balance between the reality of Satan and the demonic realm, our responsibility for our actions, and the absolute sovereignty of God. Understanding that strongholds are wrong thinking, and learning to use Godly power to pull them down. Understanding our authority in Christ. Knowing our weapons and using them.
SUCCESSION OR MULTIPLICATION (by David Devenish)
The issue of leadership succession has become a particular challenge for many fresh movements of churches which started as a result of the faith step of a particular founder, and who are now having to move to the next generation of leadership, whilst maintaining the same demonstration of missional and charismatic life. Several of these new movements have already made the transition to next generation leadership; others are about to do so. Some have done so successfully; others have experienced a measure of conflict and division, but either way it is not an easy transition. David Devenish tells the story of how Newfrontiers tackled this challenge, and how they successfully transitioned to next generation leadership through multiplication of leadership teams rather than appointing a successor, while still maintaining ministry accountability. It sets out both practical lessons that could be used by other movements as they embark on a similar journey, as well as drawing on academic studies of movements within the Christian world.
GLOBAL HUMILITY (by Andy McCullough)
The aspect that needs training, more than any other, in cross-cultural workers, is humility. Pride and mission are polar opposites. Pride pollutes mission but the mission of Christ is humble mission. How dare we turn up with all the answers when we don't even know what questions people are asking? This book should be useful, and provocative, for cross-cultural Christian workers and candidates, for those involved in multicultural cities in their own nations, for sending pastors, and for anyone whose ministry or Christian walk takes them across cultural divides. The book is made up of six sections: Moral Humility, (Thinking About Sin), Public Humility, (Thinking About the World), Semantic Humility, (Thinking About Language), Intercultural Humility, (Thinking About Differences), Incarnational Humility, (Thinking about Mission), and Theological Humility, (Thinking about Thinking).
