Taking Ownership Of the Vision

Visit The Apostolic DNA Web Page This is a tremendously important step in a local church or a national organization. This speaks of the time when the membership begins to become part of the vision too.  It is no longer just a “dream” expressed by the pastor or the national or regional leadership.  It now […]

Clearly Communicate The Vision
