It’s Just a Piece of Paper

When participants complete all eight modules of Freedom to Lead’s The Garden Project (a four-year investment that involves training and transference to another generation of leaders), they receive a certificate from Belhaven University.

But how often do we view him through the lens of Jesus the Master Communicator?

We’ve reported from the ground in Ethiopia as we interacted with leaders from whom we have so much to learn. And last week we talked about leaders being set free to lead others.

If I Cared About Anything

If I Cared About Anything

A World in Need These past couple of weeks have seemed overwhelming. Hurricane Harvey in Texas. Wildfires in the Pacific Northwest. Floods in South Asia. Mudslides in West Africa. Earthquake in Mexico. And we are currently in the midst of historic Hurricane Irma as it is making landfall in the Caribbean and Florida.
