Ministry leadership is about more than just growing your church or organization. It’s about participating in God’s mission in the world. But how can leaders know God’s mission or their unique place in it? Faithful ministry leadership is rooted in a life of deep and abiding faithfulness to Jesus. In “Spiritual Life and Leadership,” Markus Watson and his guests explore what it means to be faithful leaders whose ministry flows from their ever-deepening relationship with God.
 
Ministry leadership is hard. It’s exhausting. It’s overwhelming. And sometimes we just want to quit.That’s why it’s so important for you and me to develop healthy rhythms that will strengthen and nourish our leadership. Rhythms of learning. Rhythms of community. Rhythms of mission. Rhythms of spiritual formation.I’m Markus Watson and my hope is that each of these short episodes would serve as just a single beat in your Rhythms of Leadership.
