    • Josephine, thank you for writing. As far as leadership and actual church stewardship, I can recommend a couple solid books. The first is called “A Spirit-Empowered Church” and the second is called “Simple Church“. Both books will help you gather some solid wisdom around leadership and protocol (though they don’t do much with hospitality, per se.) I hope this helps! Matthew
