The Key To Reaching Your Ministry Potential

How well do you know yourself? By unpacking the most common personal challenges we experience in ministry and providing guided, prayerful reflection to over come them, The Self-Aware Leader helps us develop the self-awareness necessary for authentic and effective Christian Ministry Leadership. This practical book, full of encouragement and wisdom, will help you become more aware of your gifts, temptations, past history, dominant emotions, and margins.

Serving in Christian ministry is one of the toughest calls there is. But it can also be one of the most fulfilling and rewarding, especially if  you have taken the time to examine both your gifts and your vulnerabilities. The Self-Aware Leader will help you to do just that.
