Our Target Audience:

1. Pastor or church planter, young, not set in his ways about how to do church
2. The pastor-to-be in seminary
3. The middle aged pastor who feels beat up and alone from years of ministry under the pressure of success in numbers and blitzed by all the church growth organizations and their marketing.
4. The lay leader in church who wants to influence his church in a more biblical direction
