Ministry Site Review – more affirmations

In July, All Saints leaders participated in a Comprehensive Ministry Site Review. The purpose of the Review was helping All Saints do its purpose: “igniting passion for Jesus and boldly transforming our neighborhoods with hope and love.” 

In worship and here, All Saints leaders will share affirmations and recommendations from the Review report.
