What is Leadership Perspectives? As the Superintendent of the New York Ministry Network for the Assemblies of God, Dr. Duane P. Durst seeks to resource Pastors and Ministry Leaders through the experience other leaders have had in different areas. There is no sense in walking through a minefield by yourself when someone has already fought their way through, made it out alive and can hand you a map. Experience is definitely a good teacher, but somebody else’s experience is even better.
