From Crookston, MN, Daniel Wolpert is the author of “Leading a Life with God: The Practice of Spiritual Leadership”, and Trey Everett is the artist of “Holy Doodles”. They will teach and lead small group discussion on how we model, practice, and equip spiritual leaders to practice prayer together.

Daniel Wolpert writes in his book,

“People today long for, crave, the peace that comes from being free of constant worry.  As members of the community relax into the presence of God, they become conveyors of this peace.  This kind of leadership has nothing to do with activity or skills.  People naturally are drawn to individuals and groups who seem able to live lives according to the promise of God’s salvation.  And these individuals and groups become leaders by the very nature of their being.”
