    “Finally, beloved. Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

    The areas of focus for the Center for Congregational Excellence are:

     

    •  Prospective Planters
    •  New Faith Communities
    •  5 Talent Academy
