Research Team Recruiting is Underway

The core research for the Deep in the Burbs project is based on Participatory Action Research Methodology. Last Thursday the final congregation signed onto the project. Now the objective is to recruit one group of 8-12 people from three different congregations, comprising a team of 24-36 people total.

The listening/exploring sessions begin on February 24, so I need to get this team assembled. If you are interested in joining the team, click the button below.
