What Are People Saying?
"The Church Starting Cohort has provided me with tools needed to revive a plateaued church and also to plant new ministries. Being with this cohort has allowed me to take advantage of resources that I never would have been aware of before. I'm feeling like Caleb in that I'm reenergized to take this mountain that God has placed before me."
