Led by Mike Morris, we are studying "Conformed to His Image, Biblical and Practical Approaches to Spiritual Formation" by Kenneth Boa, revised edition. What does a relationship with God look like and how do we obtain it? It is vital for church leaders to grapple seriously with this question, for pat answers no longer suffice. Lives well-lived, not just words eloquently spoken, must become our response. The quality of our relationship with God is what will influence the health, potency, and witness of the church in an increasingly complex and hostile world.
