A Word from Bill

Greetings Pastors and Church Leaders!

This month be sure to check out two Great blog pieces which I did concerning church growth. They are very relevant to you and your church situation, so be sure to read, and then be sure to apply.

Trust you are having a great summer!

What are you doing to gear up and be a better leader this next ministry year, than you were this past year? A 100 Day Coaching Plan can help you get up to speed and break into new frontiers of ministry effectiveness. Give me a call (507-396-3399), if you want to talk about coaching.

God's best to you and yours,

Dr. Bill
