Six leadership lessons

By Kathy Ferguson Litton

At the Pastor’s Wives conference of the SBC this summer, we had a helpful conversation with Faith Whatley, Director of Adult Ministry at Lifeway Christian Resources. We welcome Faith to Flourish. She shared her thoughts on leadership with ministry wives. Faith is an incredible leader with valuable experience leading teams. You will find her winsome and wise as she discusses her most important leadership lessons.
