Engage Effectively

Growing the Church (GtC) is a church growth institute that serves the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA), which includes seven countries and 28 dioceses. The main purpose of GtC is to help equip dioceses and parishes to make disciples of Christ, to engage effectively in mission and evangelism and to achieve healthy church growth.
