Back Together: Community After COVID

Webinar Series

Why does community matter in God’s mission—and how do our different roles and giftings come together for God’s good?
In this final of three webinars on themes in A Field Guide for Genuine Community, Shaun Alexander and Jeff Vanderstelt join Ben Connelly to talk about teamwork and mission, and how both matter deeply as aspects of genuine community.


As the visionary leader of Saturate, the Soma Family of Churches and an elder at Doxa Church in Bellevue, WA, Jeff Vanderstelt gets to spend his days doing what he loves – training disciples of Jesus to make more disciples of Jesus and equipping the Church in the gospel and missional living. Additionally, Jeff is on the leadership team of Saturate the Sound, a local church collective focused on gospel saturation in the Puget Sound. Jeff has authored Saturate, Gospel Fluency, and Making Space. He and Jayne, his wife, have three children: Haylee, Caleb, and Maggie.


Shaun Alexander is an alumnus and All American running back from the University of Alabama, NFL MVP with the Seattle Seahawks, and an award-winning author of The Walk and Touchdown Alexander. He and his family now partner with different organizations to share the message of Jesus, Fathering, Marriage, Community, Leadership, Manhood, True Success, and the power of a TEAM through their ministry Amazing Grace Families. Shaun and his wife Valerie have 11 children and live outside of Washington DC in Northern Virginia. He is currently leading a new church plant, One Church.
