From the Minister to Students and Educations As a youth leader, I sometimes enjoy the privilege of eating like a teenager. Think multiple brownies, handfuls of Doritos, and regular Coke.

By now you have heard at least something about Fill the Hill. When I think about filling the hill at Winstanley, the idea of church growth comes to mind. Duh, you say. But what might not be so obvious is how we will go about this effort, and what it will require of church members. It would be tempting to launch into a series of methods and strategies to get people up…
