More important than the skillset we bring to our role is the life that we live with Jesus,"" writes Timothy Morey in ""More Than a Message,"" one of the articles included in this resource. In the busyness of ministry, too often we consider our job as a task list to be completed rather than a life to be lived that reflects the power and love of Jesus Christ.

This 21-page training pack includes a variety of practical tips and suggestions to help you gain a better understanding of how the way you live, and the things you do, help establish your credibility as a leader. It will equip you with tools to allow you to set an inspiring example in your ministry. NOTE: You have permission to make up to 1,000 copies of this resource to be distributed in a church or educational setting.

This Resource contains all of the following:
