Katoomba Christian Convention (KCC) is starting a series of interviews with people in ministry called Leaders Stories. Coming to the Oxygen Facebook channel weekly from Wednesday 10th November, this series will focus on stories of discovering personal weakness, lessons learnt about God's strength and the journey for how this happened for people.
Hosted by LT Hopper, the Leaders Stories series aims to get personal with everyday leaders to talk about how it is only through the understanding and discovery of our weaknesses do we truly discover God’s strength.
LT shares some of the inspiration for kickstarting this series:

Who, being in very nature God,
The Leaders Stories series is set to premiere every Wednesday at 12PM AEDT on the Oxygen Facebook Page. Each interview features 20-30 minutes of content so you can sit back and listen during your lunch break. Can’t join on the day?
