Book Description:

Does Unity Really Matter?
When Jesus prayed, “Father, may they be brought to complete unity,” did He really expect to see His prayer answered in our communities?

The City-Wide Church: Unity That God Blesses goes deep into the biblical imperative of unity to stretch your imagination for what is possible here and now.

This book will inspire you with real-life stories, problem-solving scenarios, and easily transferable principles that can propel the Church in your city to the next level.

God promises to pour out great blessing where He finds unity among His people. This book serves as a guide for how to see this happen in your community. Richard Long’s insight and passion for the city-wide Church will fill you with hope for the future and draw you into the vision God has for His Church.
