Holistic Leadership Development

Leadership - Logan LeadershipYou want to develop leaders who will do what Jesus called us to do, leaders who can take the church forward into the 21st century. You look to the fields and see them, as Jesus does, ready for harvest — and you know that’s where your ministry needs to concentrate.

What’s needed is holistic leadership development — the kind of leadership development that comes from the harvest and leads people back into the harvest, resulting in subsequent generations of new believers and new leaders living as Jesus called us to live.

Pastoral care during grief and loss

I was recently asked for counsel on how best to engage in pastoral care during a time of grief and loss. That’s never an easy thing to respond to. No one-- not even pastors-- ever really knows what to say in cases where someone has died. That’s especially true if the...
