What is the Center for Congregational Excellence?

The Center for Congregational Excellence focuses on starting new faith communities and renewing existing churches in light of the core values of excellence and fruitfulness. The goal of excellence is based on Philippians 4:8:
“Finally, beloved. Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
The areas of focus for the Center for Congregational Excellence are:

 - Prospective Planters
 - New Faith Communities
  - 5 Talent Academy
