The Leadership KIT
Following Christ is about building relationships. It is one thing to place faith in Him. Acting as He did and doing as He said is something else. The "fully human" part of Jesus was tempted to respond with emotions, actions and words as we are today. KIT's interactive relationship workshops and leadership blogs offer hands-on guidance to our fully human responses by studying Scriptural insights, New Testament letters and Christ in Crisis.
