The church in North American appears to be in a bit of trouble. Let’s face it, it doesn’t have the greatest reputation; it’s been losing as many as a million members a year; and it doesn’t look like much is going change any time soon. Indeed, there are those who have predicted that the demise of the church is at hand. Not so. Drs. Bill Tenny-Brittian and Kris Tenny-Brittian have been working with churches for years, helping them become faithful disciple-making congregations. Their consultations and training events bring hope to beleaguered church leaders and renewed energy to congregations as they make a commitment to transforming lives. And now Drs. Kris and Bill are taking to the airwaves again. Each show features a conversation about topics that make a difference to the church: leadership, disciple-making, evangelism, what’s working, what’s not, and much much more. Join them for ChurchTalk and help change your church, your community, and your world.

Someone probably said, "Good morning" as the guest walked from front door to the pews. Instead, what the visitor is really saying is, "No one took the time to have a conversation with me. I was essentially ignored." Which in many churches – more than we'd care to admit – is ...
