Right Turns serves as a guide to 30 different issues you face as a pastor. You can do what you've always done or you can give a critical eye to how you can be better leading in your church. Right Turns will help you get there by looking at the following six components of ministry:

It's a blessing when a church can have staff, but it also presents new challenges that come with it. Knowing how to lead and challenge staff is critical.
