The children of Israel got used to disappointment and discouragement. They longed for the days of old when they once lived under the provision and favor of God. Now as captives in a foreign land God was about to do a new thing for them. God was calling them to look forward to his next move! The best was yet to come!
Living in a foreign land that was religiously and philosophically different from that of their own, it would be easy to write off the society as pagans and look for an opportunity to escape. However God had another plan. If they invested in the land, cared for it and sought peace for it, they would experience success and prosperity. As the land prospered, so would they.
DOWNLOAD DAY is a day of worship, growth and investment from world class leaders! We focus on growing as servants and learning more about what God wants to accomplish in and through us.
Join us this memorial day weekend with our guests Jeremy Kraus, Latricia Trice, and hosts Pastor Muta and Christine Mwenya.

Through the lens of social media, everyone puts there best foot forward... churches included. How we brand ourselves online should direct be a reflection of our culture and the Sunday experience at Relevant. In this breakout session, we'll take a look at how we can live out that culture through our serving.
Beyond being an introduction to the world of church marketing, this session will explore the impact that Relevant Church Niles intends to make through every marketing channel. We will learn more about Relevant’s brand identity and audience and discuss the importance of every aspect of our marketing strategy. This session will offer insight into our current practices and goals and also offer an opportunity for fresh ideas and perspectives.
In a church environment, worship goes beyond just singing, but includes the band, the technology and the audience. In this breakout session Christine will discuss the 3 theological reasons why we worship, showcase examples of worship environments and then review some practical steps tech/media, vocals and band can do to create an engaging worship environment for everyone involved.
Children are probably the most valuable but underserved group in society. But it's interesting that the last place for people to volunteer to serve is often children's ministry. However, Jesus valued children when everyone else wanted to neglect them, He said “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God." This session is about learning to have the heart of Jesus to love, lead and influence the next generation!
