What if building the right church depends on using all the wrong people?
Imagine. Churches "not" built on the greatest talent, the finest facilities, or the most exceptional programs. Instead, churches that come together to unleash every single person to impact the world with the Spirit of God for the glory of God.
It's a radical idea.
10-Pack - Perfect for small groups or church-wide campaigns.
