And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV) • Question to consider: What fears have kept you from fulfilling the mission God made you to accomplish? What keeps you from telling others the Good News? Leadership Principles from God’s Word: Communicating Vision
