The importance of the modern day Church inside March's edition of Direction
Spring will come, new life will spring forth, the experiences of past seasons will fade and fresh hope and joy will burst forth again. I love the promise God gives to Israel through the prophet Isaiah: “And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a well watered garden, like a spring of water whose waters do not fail,” (Isaiah 58:11). I pray that you will personally experience the rhythm of God’s renewing presence this Spring!
Delve into a packed March issue of Direction magazine! Learn about the importance of the modern day Church and these key areas within it – facing 21st Century Challenges, Setting culture, Planting new congregations and Lessons from Acts.
