While most individuals are concerned about their appearance the same cannot be said for most churches.  Do we see ourselves as others see us?  Are the many unspoken messages from our churches drowning out the one message we long to share with others?


This webinar holds up a mirror to our churches and asks some very important questions.


Unfortunately due to some technical problems on the day, the quality of this presentation falls short of the usual high standard.  It will be replaced, and an additional video on the aspect of welcome will be added.

This video runs for about 45 minutes.  Please remember to 'Like' the video on YouTube.  You can also subscribe to the channel to receive news of added resources.
