Books that Shape Godly Leaders

by | Apr 6, 2020 | From the SSI Staff, Uncategorized

It has been said that “You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read” (Charlie Jones). Since many of us are dealing with unprecedented levels of free time on our hands, the SSI staff wanted to share a few books with you that we love. We hope you will make the most of this opportunity and view each book you read during these weeks (whether it’s on our list or not) as an investment in the leader God is calling you to be.
