Everything rises and falls on the character and inner life of the leader. The apostle Paul seemed to believe so as well.

Today, very few church leaders feel like they are winning.

Great news! I'm officially back from my summer sabbatical and I'm excited to share with you insights from my time away. In the 3rd - 5th centuries, early Christian men and women fled to the desert to escape the moral compromise in the church and the idols of the world.

One of the most destructive temptations leaders face is living and leading from the veneer of a "false self". In other words, we project an image of how we'd like to be perceived, rather than living from truth. In today's podcast, I share a sermon from Colossians 3 that explores how we can overcome our false self and live out of our true self in Ch…
 
Many leaders today believe that if we're going to get things done and be successful, we must "take the bull by the horns". We are told that strength and power win in the economy of leadership. So when Jesus boldly announces "Blessed are the Meek", it's no wonder that many of us shrug our shoulders and keep plowing ahead. In today's podcast, I share…

In the second part of this series, we explore how Jesus disrupted false peace by cleansing…
 
Many pastors have been professionally educated and extensively trained. The problem is – we are facing a massive discipleship crisis.

Is your life and leadership the same on the INSIDE as it is on the OUTSIDE? You might respond "Of course it is!". But reality is - sometimes it's hard to know.
