“The role of the leader is to excite people about the mission…There is a science to giving – you have to understand that people are motivated to be involved and motivated to work. We need to learn to speak the language of motivation. It’s our role to inspire people to give to the work.”
- Bishop Walter S. Thomas, Pastor, New Psalmist Baptist Church
