Guidelines for Leading
Scripture - 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 (NIV) - Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
