This is part one of three part series on EC-GO. Today we’re going to tell you a little bit more about the vision behind Essential Christian's brand-new streaming platform. The team at EC-GO are passionate about equipping the church for action. That’s precisely why they’ve created a brand-new streaming platform for Christian resources.
What’s on EC-GO?
EC-GO is made up of four channels of video and audio for you to discover: Home group resources, Spring Harvest Home 21, Featured Videos and All Content.
More videos and resources will be regularly updated to keep the channels fresh with new content to discover.
What’s the vision?
Equipping the church for action starts with you. The church is made up of millions of people just like you. You matter. Your spiritual life matters. Whatever you feed, grows. EC-GO is all about nourishment, the nourishment of your spiritual life.
Your spiritual life is directly linked to your every-day experience of life, and in that everyday experience we all go through seasons. Seasons of growth, seasons of struggle, seasons of celebration and seasons of lament.
Seasons are important, both spiritually and physically. God is with us in every season we experience in our lives.
The natural world we live in, the world God made for us, is completely dependent on seasons. Seasons are essential for new life and growth. They also bring context to what we experience and why we experience those things. When we really take a moment to feel the season we’re in with all our senses, we nourish ourselves, we give space to reflect and we find perspective in God.
We align with the season and connect with a vital part of ourselves and what God is teaching us in that moment. We gain powerful insight into how we could be living - more in tune with the rhythms of nature and, in turn, how God wants us to live. After all, are the natural seasons not like the seasons of our lives?
The more we embrace the seasons we experience and find ourselves in, the more easily we understand how God wants us to live. It’s hoped that you use the videos and resources in EC-GO to spiritually nourish yourself, your home group and your church. Take stock of the season you’re in and embrace it with it all that you have to give.
