Podcast Episode #365
Leaders in the church often struggle on their own. They are at their most effective when they have someone coaching them and pushing them to realize their full potential.
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
- “Ministry leadership is some of the most complex and challenging leadership environments we will find ourselves in.”
- “Leadership is all about people.”
- “We see leadership coaching relationships all throughout Scripture.”
- “Every great leader needs a coach.”
- “If you’re going to work with people, you’re going to have to love them and lead them.”
