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.
