Need a Ministry Focus for your Church?

While some of them are subjective (Nerdiest state? Ugliest state?), judgmental (what’s wrong with Mobile Homes?), or just plain weird (what’s up with Washington State? Dude!), if your state is the worst at something, then perhaps your church or ministry area has problems with it too.

May be worth thinking about…or passing by with a shake of your head! The choice is yours!
