Product Details

Many people are involved in nonprofit Christian organizations. In these positions, they encounter the many unique challenges of nonprofit leadership.

How do those who are Christian leaders differ from those who are not? Why do we operate nonprofits? What do we hope to get from our efforts?

The following thoughts were written for the Christian leader, pastor, lay leader, or corporate officer who would like to sit, think, and pray about what is next in the organization he or she leads. This three-week meditation guide is intended to facilitate just that, acting as a catalyst for meditation and prayer for the Christian leader.

Whatever the task God has placed on your heart, He also has a plan. He is older than you, smarter than you, and loves you; you can trust Him.

About the Author

For the past twenty-five years, Dave Wager has served as a leader, friend, and teacher to thousands who have entered the educational grounds of Silver Birch Ranch in White Lake, Wisconsin. Today Dave continues to serve as the president of Silver Birch Ranch, and also teaches at camps, conferences, churches, and businesses throughout the world. He is Founder of The Omega Force, an international membership group dedicated to intimacy with God.

Dave's life has been dedicated to the growth of young people, first as a volunteer youth worker and then later as a fifth-grade teacher. He has served as president of the Wisconsin Christian Camping Association and currently teaches a class in "Christian Life and Ethics" at the Nicolet Bible Institute.

Dave desires that each person he meets walk intimately with God and fulfill the purposes for which he or she was designed. He believes that joy and effectiveness in life, work, and ministry come from knowing what really matters. His focus is in examining how today's choices affect the real bottom line: knowing what we are about, what are our responsibilities, and what are God's responsibilities.
