I ♥ My Church

It’s About Focused Excellence • October 14, 2018 • David R. Stokes
Human beings have a tendency to over-complicate things. Whether it's governmental bureaucracy, which grows exponentially, or even churches. Bigger is not always better. It's important to realize that we need to keep our priorities straight and our methods simple.

We Learn, Seek & Adapt

It's Only Ever Always About Jesus
