Morris has devel­oped a scrip­tural­ly-based lead­er­ship train­ing pro­gram con­sist­ing of three parts: (1) Six Requirements to Having a Teachable Spirit; (2) Three Basic Leadership Principles; and (3) Five Qualities of Good Leadership. Morris and Sarah were in Kursk, Russia in November of 2013 and were in Lezapa, Honduras in May of 2014. They are con­nect­ing glob­al­ly with pas­tors and lead­ers with plans to be back in Honduras and Russia in the Fall of 2014 and then to India in 2015.
