    The Wesley Challenge

    By Chris Folmsbee

The Wesley Challenge introduces our denomination’s father in a practical and accessible way through twenty-one questions studied over three weeks. This series is a great way for your entire church to renew its passion and discover a deeper commitment to God—one that is more authentic, vulnerable, and soul-shaping.
