READING THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES:  The Secret To Thriving on the Frontlines of the Pandemic and Beyond

The Church had already begun to lose its privileged place in the center of Western Culture—and that was before the Pandemic of 2020 changed everything!

What churches need now isn't better preaching or programming - instead we need an ancient secret - the "secret of Issachar”.  This secret was the ability to understand the moment we live in, anticipate where we are heading, and lead accordingly.

In this Resilient Church Academy Master Class, your guides Drs. Len Sweet and Michael Beck will introduce you to Issachar's secret, Contextual Intelligence, and teach you practical ways it can equip your church to be prepared for today and the days ahead.

Register now and you'll receive access to this exclusive live event, as well as a hardcover copy (shipped to you) of Len and Michael’s new book - Contextual Intelligence: Unlocking the Ancient Secret to Mission on the Front Lines.
