Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “I would not give a fig for the simplicity on this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.” For a church to move its missions work beyond helping that hurts and toxic charity means it will have to wrestle with complexity, there’s no other way. We help churches navigate that complexity through our Missions 3.0 Training. It provides a common language and a general framework you can use to build a shared vision for sustainable solutions and shows you how to connect to the business-minded of your church who can help that happen.

This video gives you an overview of the Missions 3.0 framework in a nutshell. Learn more at Significant Matters.
