Twenty seventeen held lots of changes for the ministry of Church Juice. After almost a year without a project lead, I started as Church Juice’s new producer in late July, and it’s been a whirlwind six months since then (for which I am grateful).

It’s been a great year, but our ministry is certainly looking forward to 2018, and we hope you are as well. But even as we look forward, I thought it also fitting to take a moment to look back at 2017 — here are some of this year’s most visited articles.

In the Church, we have a tendency to want to give every program and ministry a unique look. But in doing so, we fail to reinforce the main brand (the church).
