SIX-MINUTE STUDY #98

   Annual meeting time is here again. This is one of the most exciting times in history to be serving in church leadership. There are so many important decisions to be made about doing missional ministry and being wise stewards of all that our generous God has gifted to us. How can we make a difference in growing the Kingdom this year? Read this inspiring article written by Donald V. Romanik, president of the Episcopal Church Foundation, that outlines the joys of being on a Parish or Church Council, or what he calls “vestry”.
