The Church Growth Planning Retreat

Effective planning takes time. The “tyranny of the urgent” is the enemy of planning.

Power of The Kingdom

I do not know the ratio of the increased power when two agree as compared with one person. I do believe that the power two have with God compared with one person is more than doubled. I know the power of a partnership of two people wed together who agree to raise a family and […]
