A portrait of a healthy church reveals a united group of committed, fruitful believers; yet many churches today do not reflect that image. The short but powerful book of Jude shows how God can transform a weak and struggling church and use it as an evangelistic force. Come be encouraged and equipped to help your church find renewed passion for sharing the life-changing Gospel message (Jude 1).
