A place of refreshing. A place to recharge.
A place of unlimited resources.
The world has experienced a reset. It is a decade of the new normal. The church must therefore function differently. The church must critically rethink how to engage the world, disciple converts, empower new leaders to unleash their ministry and highlight our responsibility in shaping culture.
