  • Are you looking for ways to advance justice as a pastor or church/ministry leader? Here are 6 practical ways to do so: 1) Order 10 hard copies of Guiding Families to have on hand for families in your church.

  • On September 13, 91 days following the terror attack, nearly 200 senior evangelical leaders in the Orlando area attended Posture Shift.

Lead Them Home wishes to thank our host church, attendees and many partners who referred Orlando leaders our way. It was a genuine honor to step into a place of grief and share a Christ-centered path forward. [...]
