True growth is what happens when your church's message resonates.
Creative communication that ignites hearts and changes lives is key to communicating the gospel of jesus and building Christian community.
The majority of churches in America are getting smaller, growing older and losing a voice in broader culture.
Changes in communications and technology are moving too fast to respond with integrity and effectiveness.

Communications in most churches functions like an overworked Kinko's, with mixed messages and uneven results.
