One unexpected part of quarantine / re-entry life is the bombardment of online opportunities coming our way. Pain and grief…creativity and innovation. Our Facebook feeds are an ocean of experts sharing their resources in new ways.

Where do we start?

Part of our work at LEAD is to curate resources for Christian leaders. You can trust us, like you did in the past, to point to quality resources that support your leadership as you listen to God’s call in this whirlwind.
