What are the benefits you hope our churches will receive as a result of your work/role at the BRN?
My prayer is that we capture the stories of what God is doing throughout all of our churches, and in so doing, encourage each one of us on to greater works. I pray ministry leaders will be encouraged, informed and connected to the BRN family because of the stories we tell, no matter the format.
