#ReimagineFutureChurch: If Church is The Answer ... "What's The Question?"
  
 
I believe the Lord is (re)building the Church with question asking men and women who see beyond our current crises and conflicts by seeking-pursuing the Spirit's leading into what will become the future Church.
 

I am inviting Thought-Leaders and Featured-Contributors at The Reimagine.Network

to help me engage and equip ministry leaders

by challenging them with a thought-provoking, paradigm-shifting, ministry-transforming question

the Lord can use to prompt them to pursue (asking-seeking-knocking) as a path into the future.

*

Answers are ineffective until we ask the right questions.

*

So, rather than suggesting what you do

{new programs, specific methods]

We focus on how to think.

Spirit-Led ~ Scripture-Fed.
