  • Vitality

    Congregational vitality is a journey of life, energy, passion, discovery, and hope. It is a result of the living God breathing new life into the heart of a congregation. Vitality is the wind of the Spirit…“a rushing wind so wild and strong,” as the old hymn goes. Our role is to raise our sails and catch this wind.

Starting missional, reproducing churches that will plant other churches is one of the Church’s greatest challenges and most exciting tasks at the beginning of the 21st Century.
