Shape your church culture around discipleship!

Your church structures and programs only exist to provide a trellis for the growth of the vine, the community that ministers the Word of God to one another. The Vine Project provides you with a road map and offers resources to achieve a cultural change for your entire church.

This book will guide your team of ministry leaders through a five-phase process toward change and growth, providing biblical foundation, practical ideas, resources, case studies, exercises, and projects.

It will help you:

  • Clarify and polish your convictions ( Phase 1 )
  • reform your personal life so that it expresses these convictions ( Phase 2 )
  • Honestly evaluate every aspect of the current culture of your church or ministry ( Phase 3 )
  • develop some key plans and carry them out ( Phase 4 )
  • keep the process running and overcome obstacles ( Phase 5 )

The trellis and the vine proposes a radical change of mind regarding the ministry of the church. The vine project shows how that change of mind can and should shape every aspect of what we are doing to make disciples of all nations.
