Don't Wing It

In Acts 2:38, Peter warns us “Save yourselves from this untoward generation.” The word ‘untoward’ means having no direction or course of action. When we have no direction, vision, purpose, or plan of action, we aimlessly wander our entire lives wasting our God given dreams. Read More…

Talent and Titles

Talent and titles are not enough for leadership. They may open the doors for opportunity, but they won’t secure your position long term.
