Because church membership is important Leadership Development and Discipleship, in cooperation with the General Overseer’s office, is offering MEMBERSHIP MATTERS. Membership Matters is a five-session, downloadable course that will help the local church prepare potential members for church membership.
Welcome to Membership Matters with Sam Clements, General Overseer Church of God of Prophecy
