SO YOU ARE NEW? OR WANT TO RENEW?
Whether you are a NEW Leader, or wanting to RENEW your ministry, the first step is to choose to be a PROACTIVE leader and then take a fresh, objective look at your ministry - as though you are an outsider, or as though you were just hired. (It's easier, of course, if you just were!) But either way, make a list of what needs to be done, prioritize it, commit it to prayer and then get to work!
