Tools To Get Healthier

Every church can be healthier. Health is not just important for the sick and hurting.
Health is not just needed for the weak and struggling.

Health is for everyone.
Think of the community within which God has sovereignly placed your church. Think of the individuals and families. Think of the schools and workplaces. Think of where people shop, play, and eat. Think of every home. Think of every heart. And now imagine GOSPEL TRANSFORMATION in that community – the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.

What will it look like?

One thing is for sure: It will include a healthy church.
