Some Quotes from “Movements That Change The World”

#2 The practicalities, challenges and glories of local church planting. (e.g. resources, lessons learned, mistakes to avoid, best practices, interviews and more)
#3 The ins-and-outs of urban ministry. (e.g. cost-of-living, mobility, housing, family life, mission, apologetics, and more)
As such, I have set-up three individual pages that deal with these issues, in particular.
