Casey Cleveland, Senior Pastor at Avenue Church, Delray Beach, FL, shares his advice from Joshua 4:14: On that day, the Lord exalted Joshua. It is the Lord who exalts us when it comes to significant shaping ministry.

Being prepared holistically includes mindfulness, diet, sleep, exercise. Every area of life affects your ministry.
