If I could devote myself to a subject of study and teaching without distraction, my subject would be called Church Structure Theory. I say “theory” because it’s unproven and untested, yet it seeks to solve real problems with real changes. Creation begins in the mind. First, we perceive the need or desire for something new. Then we set about deciding what we want to be different. Once we’ve decided how it should look or where we want to go, we set out to perform it.

- We can get all the quality teaching in the convenient package of a podcast.
- We can worship Jesus with superior musical quality with cds and mp3s
