Equipping the Church to be Bold

Outside Its Walls

Our goal is to see the Gospel-preaching Church boldly proclaiming and living out the power of the Gospel every day everywhere.

The Problem

Every church leader we’ve met deeply desires to be part of an outwardly focused church that has significant Gospel impact outside its walls (Matt. 5:16). But, there are often internal obstacles (such as apathy, a bit of fear and lack of practical strategies) and external obstacles (such as legal restrictions and cultural pressure) that frustrate leaders and prevent ministries from maximizing their Gospel impact in their community.



Equip Church Leaders

We live in a time of mega-change that presents significant opportunities to your church. Bold, effective leaders master three keys skills: legal information, practical apologetics and public life.
