Imagination will ignite passion for local missional communities

“The imagination of the church is still unfolding and becoming. We have said that the local congregation is the foundational unit of the church. We believe that the role of the regional and nationwide churches is to bring together, celebrate and provide resources for these local missional communities. To hear from each other about what ignites our imaginations is a great idea.”
