Planting Transformational Communities [REPEATS]

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Do we need reform in how we measure success in church planting? In education, success is measured by the number of degrees conferred for graduation, while prisons measure success by the number of beds they can fill. How does a church plant measure its success? In this workshop we address what true community transformation means by seeing the empowered poor advancing God's kingdom through the local church.
