Building Your Speaking ministry

A big part of being a kids pastor or youth pastor is public speaking. As pastors, we’re all confronted with the same questions each week: What am I going to teach on? What is God desiring to say to His people? How can I best communicate this message?

Special Announcement

It is with great sadness that I make the following announcement. After eight excellent years of service, our Network Royal Ranger Director, Bob Killin, will be concluding his service this year.
