Let's explore what the Bible says about efficiency, evaluate your efficiency level, and walk away with a practical plan to honor God with a more efficient approach to ministry.

Come hear stories of those who have walked a path similar to yours and learn how God worked in their lives to bring them through those dark days and restore their passion for ministry.
