Today I am being dispatched by Injoy Stewardship Solutions (ISS) to attend the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast.  In an effort to grow in my skills to better add value to pastors and church leaders, I will be live blogging throughout.

The second session’s first speaker was Peyton Manning, the incomparable quarterback of the Denver Broncos.

Before getting to Peyton’s thoughts on being a brave and bold leader, INJOY Stewardship Solutions is offering a FREE download of Church Branding 101.  In this resource Ken Wilson, Director of NewSpring Creative, will be walking us through NewSpring Church’s recent rebranding process.  Click here or on the image above to sign up.
