Ministry and "Monsters": The Calm of Christian Courage

Join us as we reflect on the virtue of courage for ministry leaders. What exactly IS courage, and how does Scripture lead us to think about courage as a habit of character in a tense environment? We will consider biblical counsel from 1 Peter and how this short book may help us live out a Christian vision of courage in our various ministry contexts.
