Update June 2, 2009
A working draft of an internship manual based on "Competencies of a Well-Formed Stewardship Leader" is now available for review. It's a DRAFT, which means it may contain a few typos and editing glitches. Please point these out to me, Rob Blezard (author) for fixing. I also welcome your feedback on content, tone, etc.
