5.53: Word of Encouragement for Church Leaders

Rediscover the sacred pause, navigate challenges, and make this season a profound spiritual journey.

Let us at the Pivot podcast encourage YOU in this time leading up to Christmas!

This week, host Dee Stokes is here to share a gentle reminder amidst the Christmas chaos: Jesus came expressly for you and your congregation, illuminating the darkness. In the busyness, find a sacred pause to recharge, for you are instrumental in guiding others.

As exhaustion looms, extend the invitation to encounter Jesus anew this season. Reflect on your personal connection with Him and navigate through your seasonal challenges.

Embrace the light and share it, making this Christmas a profound spiritual journey for all.
