Resources for Pastors

In an effort to get much needed resources into the hands of our Pastors and Leaders, I have compiled this resource to help you navigate ministry in an ever-changing world.  Remember, the message of Jesus that we preach is sacred, the method on how we deliver that message is not.  In 2020 we now use many methods to reach people with the life giving message of Jesus.  Use technology to win people to Jesus and glorify God!  I pray this is a blessing to you.  Please reach out to me if I can be of further help. Please know, I do not receive anything to promoting these resources to you.  I have used them and found what works for me. This is meant to give you a starting place as you research what works best for you in your city, church and context.
