    Mentoring Matters

    Building Strong Christian Leaders, Avoiding Burnout, Reaching the Finishing Line

    Christian leadership is noble work, but it is also a daunting responsibility. Leaders often struggle to understand how the Spirit is working through their ministry. Mentoring Matters looks at how leaders can maximize their potential so that they can thrive in ministry. Author Rick Lewis goes beyond the issues of basic leadership skills to address leaders' personal needs-their spirituality, emotional health, key relationships, vulnerabilities, and rhythms of life.

    "A joy to read. I particularly like his emphasis on being — the core of a leader — vs. doing — accomplishments and career goals. I congratulate Rick on this soulful, well-crafted work."
