This training tool provides solid principles for developing ministry leaders. Read on to find out how you can equip your children's ministry program with enthusiastic and qualified leaders.
This tool is adapted from "Developing Coaches and Future Leaders," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by David Weil with Judy Williams. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.
