The Zume Project Igniting The Spark

Only 1% of church leaders say, “today’s churches are doing very well at discipling new and young believers” (Barna, State of Discipleship, 2015).

It really is about time. “The time is now” is so much more than a cliché line; it is a cry for urgency and an anthem to pick up the pace, to respond with fervor to the love that Jesus displayed on the cross.We cannot forget the eternal destiny of eternal souls is determined in time.
