Bring renewal with a biblical model of revival. Build leaders with a time-tested plan for discipleship. Energize your vision for missions. Grow together with key principles of Christian community. And who makes up the panel of expert consultants who will guide your vision for lasting change? None other than Martin Luther, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, William Carey, John Wesley, Richard Baxter, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and more.
