Resilient Church Academy is Brought to You By

How do you do ministry when everything keeps changing?

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.

What to Expect in the Masterclass

In this Resilient Church Academy Masterclass, 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.

Live Teaching

Unlock Issachar's secret with new and exclusive teaching live on Zoom.

  • Introduction to Issachar's Secret from renown futurist Len Sweet
  • Practical application for congregations and pioneering leaders from Michael Beck
  • Live Q & A

Free Book

All participants will receive a free copy of the brand-new book Contextual Intelligence: Unlocking The Ancient Secret to Mission on the Frontlines by Drs. Sweet & Beck.
