• Forming a Culture of Goodness in Your Church

    In recent years, Christians have gotten used to revelations of abuses of many kinds in our most respected churches. How do we keep these devastating events from repeating themselves?

They discussed ways of identifying toxic cultures and how we can form church cultures that ultimately lead to goodness.
