Training Pastors, Building Healthy Churches

For more than a decade, 9Marks has published a regular Journal to equip and encourage church leaders and church members. For this special, 20th-anniversary edition of the Journal, we compiled some of our most essential articles—several for each of the nine marks. If you're not familiar with our ministry, this would be an excellent place to start.
