Help Your Congregation - Essential Practices
  • Turn Hearers Into Doers

Do you want to see people transformed,
or just informed?

Remember when you first experienced your calling to make disciples, and felt like your life had a significant purpose?

For many of us, that feeling is not much more than a memory. Our congregations seem asleep to the real and powerful grace of God, content to go through the weekly motions, hearing but not doing. Instead of making real disciples, we've started measuring our success by attendance numbers.

Your hope is to see people transformed, not just informed. But there are more hurdles standing in your way than ever before. Essential Practices can help.
