Every leader has a responsibility to make decisions that not only consider the best interests of the ministry but also actively seek God's will. In a group setting this gets even more complicated as multiple voices seek to reach a unified understanding of what the will of God might be in any particular situation.

This 26-page training pack includes a variety of practical tips and suggestions to help you help you seek God's will as a team. NOTE: You have permission to make up to 1,000 copies of this resource to be distributed in a church or educational setting.
