  • Gain a vision for truth.

  • See how delighting in God will inspire your worship.
  • Bring renewal with a biblical model of revival.
  • Build leaders with a time-tested plan for discipleship.
  • Energize your vision for missions.
  • Grow together with key principles of Christian community.
And who makes up the panel of expert consultants who will guide your vision for lasting change?
