Every third Tuesday, 1-2 p.m. CST
Many churches have assumed that they don't have the resources or numbers to reach new people and grow their congregation. But what if you don't have to have a large congregation to reach new people?
Chasing after God’s vision, congregations in the Missouri Annual Conference of all sizes, have seen a growth vision turn into creating new places for new people. In this webinar series we’ll feature pastors, church planters, and lay leaders from churches of all sizes who will share their stories of growth and provide tools that you can use in your congregation and community.
