The Father wants leaders to be courageous and for churches to thrive even more than we want them to. God, across the centuries, has been faithful to succor, strengthen, rescue, and prosper the intrepid obedience of women and men willing to trust the Lord and align themselves with Kingdom purposes.

God delights to be our all-in-all [Psalm 46:1], to watch over us with care [2 Chronicles 16:9], and to remain closer to us than we can comprehend. [Matthew 23:37]
