What is Breakthrough?

Breakthrough is a resource designed to provide easy to use best practices and worship series so that GNJ congregations can re-tune their worship, spend less time preparing the details and focus on what really matters – preaching the gospel to make disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world.

The Breakthrough Journal is a guide to be used in coordination with a set of five worship series designed for GNJ congregations. You will find all the liturgies you need for your bulletin, creative graphics and videos, song and hymn suggestions, sermon starter materials and more. They’re all free, and everything is adaptable.

Take and use what works. Rewrite or skip what doesn’t. The goal is to save pastors 10 hours each week to prepare the sermon and lead the congregation. The goal is for leaders in churches to continue to learn, grow, and serve well. As pastors and church leaders partner together to do God’s work: the breakthrough will come.
