As a favor to a friend, I once worked the book table at a Christian conference. The table was brimming with curriculums, programs, and publications for sale. One attendee approached me, looked at all the resources, and declared:

Your church is different. It’s a unique community and culture. And it’s supposed to be. Your church doesn’t need a random expert pushing a prefabricated program. You need an approachable practitioner who engages with you by asking:
What is life like in your neighborhood? What thrives in your context? What is Christ calling you to do?
