A weekly reading experience that brings you the best from the vast and growing world of online faith-based and faith-challenging writers.
We live and serve in a world of constant challenges to our faith and ministry.
Every day I receive dozens of posts and articles from churches, schools, ministries and faith leaders.
I also read those who attack and demean Christianity. I read and evaluate all these articles and prepare a list to send you each Monday.
As a result, each week you will receive links to the ten best resources that will keep you informed and prepared to serve and lead in our complex ministry culture.
You will be informed about key issues and trends and given what you need to change your world.
