It’s Always Time to Get Personal

For A Strong Team On Sunday, Invest In Them On Monday

Making the time to invest in relationships in ministry can be difficult with all the other things on our to-do lists.

Hashtags are not a fool-proof plan for doing so, but they certainly are a good starting point for helping us get out in front and to engage... Read More
