Healthy churches have healthy Gospel doctrine and healthy Gospel culture. When we focus on only one of them, we are like an individual who has developed only one side of his/her body and neglected the other. To be a healthy movement of church-planting churches, we need healthy churches. To have healthy churches, we need healthy leaders.

This Healthy Leaders Healthy Churches Intensive is designed to bring practitioners from various parts of the continent and the world to encourage, inspire and challenge us to strive for health from the inside out, while being effective in Gospel ministry.
