Since the publication of Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations, these five practices have helped hundreds of congregations understand their mission, renew ministries, and stretch toward fruitfulness and excellence for the purpose of Christ. Now, each of the five practices has been broken out into 4-week small group studies called The Fruitful Living Series that provide an honest, practical, and winsome guide to the spiritual journey.

In Receiving God's Love: The Practice of Radical Hospitality we learn that our personal walk with Christ begins with an extraordinary receptivity to the grace of God. Within the congregation, hospitality focuses on inviting and making room for newcomers. In our personal walk, in distinctive ways, we first invite God into our hearts and make space for God in our lives. We receive God’s love and then offer it to others.
