Conversations: What Canada Can Teach Us

Canada is a wonderful country. The cities are beautiful, the people are incredibly nice, and they gave us hockey (what more do you need?).

This week we share the conversation that Todd and I had with Thomas Coleman and […]

July 2013 Ministry Briefing

MinistryBriefingCover

Back in January my friend Todd and I started a new project called Ministry Briefing. I realize that I might talk about it a whole lot, but that is because I am incredibly excited about it. I think we have created a fantastic tool for church leaders… a tool that saves leaders time and keeps them up to date on the things that are affecting the ministry world. I am convinced that informed leaders are […]
