"For Christian leaders everywhere; may you know that you are accepted in the Beloved"

In this book, written for time-pressured leaders to be read in one hour, Michael Volland reminds Christians of their identity as those who are accepted in Jesus Christ; he offers practical wisdom for leadership, addressing the importance of clarity about our task, growing in love, wisdom and humility, living well with the pressure of responsibility, confronting challenges, making decisions, and creating space to process.

Whether you are young or old, paid or a volunteer, lay or ordained, if you are called to Christian leadership, you will find inspiration and encouragement in this helpful resource.
