Minute with Mike / November 2019 Satan tries to convince churches, ministries and individuals that we’re in competition with each other, but it simply isn’t true. Paul uses the analogy of a body and its various parts to remind us that we’re all different but valuable. One of the things I love about the National...

Pastor Luncheons Stir Up Opportunities

In the post, How to Be in Two Places at Once, I mentioned that Regional Teams stir up other opportunities.

Who’s On Your List?

Minute with Mike / September 2019 This month, several of our Regional Teams will be sharing a training video about the value of keeping a ‘man list’.
