"One of the very best training retreats I have ever attended. Realistic and tested tools to use in any church that is plateaued, declining or dying, that can help set a vision birthed by the congregation itself and give you a fighting chance to see God move in your midst once again. I cannot recommend this enough!" Jeff Phillips, Pastor, Woodfield Park Baptist Church, Columbia, SC. Attended Fall 2017.
