Nobody wants to be a half-brained person… Learn how to use your full brain in The Other Half of Church!

We know we are called to love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37).

Unfortunately, our churches are not designed to produce whole-brained Christians. Despite the best efforts of churches and ministries, increasing transformation into the image of Christ seems to be the exception and not the rule.

However, there is hope!
