Should we approach our planning as an “attractional” church – meaning should we, as we increasingly get to know the […]

By Pastor Marty Price Last week I was talking with a good friend who is going through a time of transition in his life. As he shared his testimony and how God is working in his life, I loved the way he described the changes God is bringing about. He called it his “reboot,” which […]
