The importance of many small steps
The big church tasks can overwhelm us but anything is possible in small steps. Every little step should be celebrated.

Who are you preaching to?
It is pointless to preach a message that isn’t understood or that doesn’t touch the heart of your listeners.

Message 7: René Neuper
Mentoring…anyone can disciple one
Mentoring is a modern buzzword but not many of us feel we have what it takes to do this. René helps us to see how important this is and how each of us can mentor another if we are prepared to invest what we have.
Message 8: Steve Wimble
You can’t only think big and you can’t only think small
To lead well, we need to keep the big picture in mind. How quickly do we get lost in the numerous details that are necessary to lead a church? Aren’t details and the little things important as well? People also have a preference for big or little things. This talk will help us find solutions to these challenges.
