A wise person once said, “Resiliency isn’t just about bouncing back after a trauma, it’s about the ability to bounce forward, adopting newly acquired insights and behaviors.” It is our sincere hope that our clients and overall community of ministries can use the past 12 months as an opportunity to focus on their core and the infrastructure that will help their ministry efficiently reach its goals.
