#021: 6 Keys to Become a Transformational South Asian Church (Part 1 of 2) [PODCAST]

For this session, you will be listening to the  first part of my talk that I gave at Harvest Church of God in Dallas, TX. The talk was entitled, “6 Keys to Become a Transformational South Asian Church” based in 2 Corinthians 5:14-21.

This passage is often used to illustrate personal transformation, but I believe this text gives us keys for communal, wide-spread transformation. 

Listen to this podcast for more insight!
