Transforming Your City or Town

Our cities and towns need transforming. That can only happen when Jesus transforms the people of those cities and towns. Far too often that’s not happening, not because Jesus and the gospel don’t work, but because how we present them is not working. It will take some radical new ways of “doing church” and working together to transform our communities into the kind of communities God likes to see. Learn more about this and receive a free resource pack.

Data and metrics aren’t just for businesses. Every day, we consciously and unconsciously use both to explain events, evaluate progress and tell stories. Data and metrics don’t necessarily give you all the answers and, by themselves, can’t make you better. However, used well, they can help you assess church engagement and measure the intangibles of discipleship. Please join us if you want to discover how data and metrics apply in a church context and how they help you close the gap between the ministry you have today and the ministry you want to become.
