What if building the right church depends on using all the wrong people?

Imagine. Churches not built on the greatest talent, the finest facilities, or the most exceptional programs. Instead, churches that come together to unleash every single person to impact the world with the Spirit of God for the glory of God.

It’s a radical idea.

This was short. Good but felt like a teaser to get you intrested in Radical Together. I wish I would have known that I would just have bought that.
