2. Showing up:Relational Leadership:
outlines Christ calls us to share his love with others—but how do we do that? For many Christians, our preconceptions about evangelism can be intimidating. Pastors Kerry Willis and Margaret Michael, with Brian Charette, challenge us to shift our focus from procedures and formulas to true connections and real relationships.

It begins with a story--a parable of a real Christian life--one you will connect with from the very first page.Through the story of Chris Seal, authors Kerry Willis and Brian Charette take you on a journey from a life overwhelmed by stress to a life freed by rest.

Using the principles found in The Stress Factor, learn how to best respond to stress and listen to God’s voice urging you to discover where rest, freedom, and peace can be found. Because stress is a battle you can win.
