Cultivating Perennial Churches: Guide to Long-Term Growth

This course explores the reasons some churches grow perennially—season after season—while most churches don't. It will identify seven principles for perennial strength. Follow the exciting and informative histories of seven perennial congregations. Learn the theology and practices that undergird perennial health and growth. Understand how perennial leaders create root systems to sustain long-term vitality in congregations.

About This Course

This course is entirely online; no travel is required and all you need to participate is an web browser and a suitable broadband Internet connection.

The course is conducted over a period of six weeks. In this period, each student will watch the week's video-on-demand lecture and then meet together via a live interactive conference call to discuss the week's assignment with Bob and other members of the class as well as ask any questions you might have.

TransformingTheChurch.org and Christian College are collaborating with The Columbia Partnership to bring leaders and champions a series of online courses to prepare congregations to engage in transitions and changes that may lead to their transformation.
