Helping churches prepare for and position their ministries to share the gospel and make disciples in the future years.
“The church is good at huddling, but (Jesus) said, ‘I want you to go!’”

“The Great Commission was given to the church, and yet we see throughout scripture that it starts at the home,”
“As soon as they step off the bus they’re asking about the next year,”
“It’s so important that we stand up and show up for children, because that’s what the Lord does for us,”
"We want to teach our students that everyone they interact with should walk away feeling like they’ve been seen, known and heard, just like Jesus would treat them,”
