The 5-Fold Church Startup: A Resilient Planting Approach

God has wired all of us for ministry.

When we uncover and awaken the five-fold typology (apostles, prophets, evangelist, shepherds, and teachers mentioned in Eph. 4) in our faith communities and our neighborhoods, we will not only be able to live out our calling, but also help others discover theirs. 

If you want to plant churches that are resilient and sustainable in the midst of crises, churches that are healthy and mature, it is vital to integrate 5Q in the way that you function.

You have heard of IQ (intelligence quotient) and EQ (emotional intelligence). This webinar is designed to help you develop your 5Q (five-fold or APEST intelligence). 

All registrants will receive a free replay of this webinar.
