STEWARDSHIP | 10 Giving Systems Every Church Must Have to Be Fully Funded
Where there is no vision, the people perish. But where there are no financial resources, the vision perishes.

Your church can experience similar results as well!

Is your church a ‘house of prayer’ like Jesus said it was to be? This workshop will cover what it takes to equip, energize, and mobilize members to become praying people.

Pray and Prayer 101: What Every Intercessor Needs to Know, and taught by the author, Elaine Helms.

Tom Carringer, Daryl Price, Kim Harris
Pastoral scenes and two-lane roads have been replaced in Cobb County by sprawling subdivisions, jam-packed freeways, and HOV lanes. The landscape of people and business have drastically changed our neighborhoods and churches. Deserts and oases of people and churches have created unique opportunities for ministry. We’ll look at how these demographic patterns effect ministry and provide potential opportunities for Kingdom growth.
