R 20 How to be Fruitful

Headlines of failing churches can put leaders under pressure to succeed. But Jesus calls us neither to failure nor to success; he calls us to fruitfulness.

This study looks at Paul's strategy of fruitfulness in planting the first church in Europe at Philippi and at his secret of fruitfulness as he reflects on his work at Corinth, and lays out Paul's (and Jesus') pattern for fruitful living and ministry. It blows the fresh breath of Jesus' simplicity through the complexity of modern life.
