Sister Michelle Smith

How long have you been a member of NL?
I have been a member of New Life for 9 and a half years.

What are the characteristics of an excellent leader?
An excellent leader is one who is an excellent follower first. An excellent leader is also someone who is willing to lead by example and put in the necessary work to carry out the mission and vision of an organization.

When the going gets tough, how do you continue to serve in ministry?
Serving in ministry is my way of honoring God. So, when the going gets tough, I push through and continue to work my kingdom purpose. Oftentimes, during ministry, God allows me to minister to myself. He's just awesome like that!
