...with Prayer, Reflection and Honest Evaluation

It is crucial for every congregation  to discern  where they are and where God is calling them to be.  God's heavenly presence offers us a taste to live in heaven now.


Each  congregation is unique in this "Good News"  even as it shares hope, love and social justice with other congregations. 


Your congregation brings together people who have specific gifts in  leadership,

 various degrees of faith, different financial & physical resources, and a surrounding community with it's own gifts and graces, challenges and tragedies.


Your church has a one-of-a-kind vision that expresses the presence of God 

though the unconditional love of Jesus Christ in distinct and surprising ways. 


We offer a series of Leadership Workshops and Seminars to deepen the faith of leaders at any stage of life in a congregation, reorganize for faith growth and outreaching ministry, and spark an ongoing and vital life in the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
