 “Jesus is gentle. Surely those who lead in His name must be typified especially by gentleness also.” –  Jeremy Stefano

In this episode, you will hear how a spiritually mature leader is known for his/her kindness and goodness; lives a life of prayer and prayerfulness; exhibits the fruit of the Spirit, especially gentleness; stands firmly on the biblical foundation of justice and mercy and prioritizes stewardship and generosity of financial resources.
