REFLECTIONS ALONG THE WAY

From the desk of Steve Macchia
Dear Friend,
 
The season of Advent is one of waiting, watching and wondering, all in anticipation of Jesus’ miraculous birth on Christmas day. We’ve traveled this road to the Incarnation before, but each year we hold our breath with a newness and freshness of anticipatory hope. As you notice the awakening in your own soul this Advent and Christmas, I pray you’ll look upon the Savior’s face with absolute delight. Receive his loving glance and notice once more your heart overflowing with gratitude. Jesus is born and the promises of God have been fulfilled in his coming.
 
As you peruse this season of our ministry’s life, please notice the fresh wind of God’s Spirit moving in, among and through us for the sake of his Kingdom and the glory of his name!

Your brother on the journey,

Founder & President

Our Church Health Assessment Tool (CHAT) has helped more than 500 churches conduct a church-wide listening exercise. We praise God for the ability to leverage the technology available to us today to help church leaders listen well as they discern the road ahead. We firmly believe that in order for leaders to be effective, they need to be good listeners to God, to one another as discerning leadership teams, and to all whom they serve.

If you haven’t seen CHAT for yourself or your local church, it might be just the right time to do so – and we guarantee it will be well worth your time! Is your church ready for a church-wide listening exercise?  Download our Free Guide to Church Assessment today.
