    "SOULeader Resources provides sure access to the riches of Kingdom living with Jesus alive here and now. They minister effectively to the inner life of the leader, where the need truly lies, and provide a foundation for public ministry from a solid foundation of joy and insight."


    The late Dr. Dallas Willard
    Professor and Author, The Divine Conspiracy, Hearing God

    “While SOULeader hits a home run in offering leadership and organizational training, the primary emphasis is helping people have a truly interactive life with God. This isn’t an add-on, but the central focus around which everything else is situated. I love being involved with SOULeader because it involves formation for the local church as well as for individuals.”

    Jan Johnson

    Speaker and Author, Meeting God in Scripture

    “Michael Bischof… takes seriously the emotional hazards of ministry and the holistic health of the minister’s family. [SOULeader] is well versed in and addresses the most important issues leaders face today – such as stress, anxiety, burn-out, and depression. This is a great ministry that is desperately needed in these days.”


    Dr. Archibald Hart

    Professor and Author, Adrenaline and Stress

    “Michael Bischof… has seen the toll ministry takes on men and women. SOULeader Resources is his attempt to assist those in ministry to stay whole in the midst of this demanding calling. Dr. Bischof brings experience, wisdom, and solid research to the multi-fold task of serving those in ministry.”

    Dr. Richard Peace
