August Update From Your LifeWay Consultant

Greetings from LifeWay!

As I make church visits I am finding most church leaders wrapping up their busy schedule of summer ministry activities, grabbing those last vacation days, and beginning to grind out their preparations for their fall ministry. It's a busy time of the year for ministry leaders!

As you finalize your fall preparations, here is a list of links that will help. My Inbox has been pretty active this last month, so I am just giving you a selected laundry list. You will definitely want to come back to this entry several times!
