LifeWay Christian Resources set forth a theme of hope in its annual report to the Southern Baptist Convention as president and CEO Thom Rainer highlighted the "Transformational Church" initiative and "Courageous," the upcoming movie project with Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga.
Rainer said both emphases demonstrate great hope for the church and for families.
The Transformational Church initiative began with an extensive research project involving 7,000 churches, 250 pastor and staff interviews and 20,000 church member surveys. Once the data was organized and evaluated, insights emerged into God's work of transforming lives and congregations.
Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
