Most pastors and professional church leaders I know got into the ministry to do… ministry. They’re the kind of people who aren’t just incensed with injustice, they’re compelled to do something about it. When they see a need up close and personal, they’ll move heaven and earth to meet it.

This is the LAST seminar Bill Easum will be doing.
