Recommended Resources (TESTING)

Looking for helpful resources?

There are so many books, resources, and tools out there that it can be difficult to find what is actually useful in a ministry setting.

We thought it might be helpful to list things that we use or we see ministries use that help them grow.

We're always adding to this list so check back often to see what's new. You can also sign up for our Keenly Leader Toolbox, to get email notification when we add something new here.
