Administration? - a gift from God.
Training can equip you, but God is the only one who can
call and empower you to serve effectively in your role. Good administration is getting others

that will impact lives, help
direct and bring order where needed, aiding
the expansion of the kingdom of God.

events to touch lives. You

when you will feel overwhelmed,
under qualified, and ill-equipped.
But, it is in those days that you will
draw on the strength of the call from God
“for such a time as this.”
