Author Jim Bradford offers a unique, hand-picked set of principles and practices gleaned in his thirty years of pastoral ministry such as:

How to develop a sustainable philosophy of leadership.
Practical tips on creating a Christ-honoring, people-centered ministry.

Sections on spirituality, strategies, and stamina and how to apply principles in your life and ministry.

Let this book help you face the challenge to keep spirituality and biblical principles hardwired into your leadership.
