Suddenly, an unexpected crisis hits, and you’re a leader. In addition to navigating the havoc it may wreak on your personal life, people are turning to you for answers. What should you do? Where should you start? Thankfully, you are not alone in this moment. Nor are you the first follower of God to be a leader in a time of crisis! The Old Testament example of Nehemiah provides a striking and hopeful example for us to follow.
If you are trying to guide a group of people through this highly stressful time, you may find yourself emotionally closing off or unsure how to help your team.

It will help you know how to do this well and in communion with God.
