As Christ-followers, we dream of being part of a Gospel movement that not only transforms people’s lives but the world around us. And yet, the world over, ministries are shrinking, and church attendance is declining.

The reality is that around the globe, people are leaving churches and Christianity as they know it citing irrelevance, a disconnect between head and heart, and unrelatable church cultures as their primary reasons. In this four part series, we’ll be looking into how church leaders can help their Gospel communities better respond to this global trend.
