In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions Podcast Todd Adkins and Barnabas Piper talk with Thomas Terry, hip hop artist as well as co-founder and current owner of Humble Beast. Humble Beast is a record label and a community of creative people seeking to show Jesus to the world and express truth with creativity and excellence. They do this through music, apparel, conferences and events, and even coffee in the past. The conversation is wide ranging and has a unique flavor because of Thomas’s and Humble Beast’s emphasis on creativity and artistry.
“Discipleship is at the very core of Humble Beast.”
“We want to cultivate not just art but healthy Christianity.”
“Hip Hop gave me a voice and a means of expression.”
“More important than meetings are the way my pastors engage with me in life.”
“I learn a lot from example and observing people’s life and conduct.”
“We might see fiscal fruit, but are we seeing ministry fruit?”
“We worship an excellent God and it drives us to make excellent things.”
“I hate to have meetings in the morning.”
“Leadership in my home looks a lot like service.”
“Leadership looks like serving people.”
“Real effective leadership looks like being connected to people.”
“It’s much easier to manage tasks and goals than it is to invest in people.”
“The entry point to relationship with people is to listen a lot more and talk a lot less.”
We’d like to thank our sponsor, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. SEBTS is always asking the question, “Where are you going?” They want to equip pastors, missionaries, theologians, scholars and more to obey the commands of Jesus to make disciples anywhere and everywhere God calls them to go. Wherever students are going, Southeastern can help them get there. Southeastern Seminary has a wide range of degrees at many levels and all M.Div. programs now have a stronger core curriculum to better equip students biblically, theologically and practically for their current and future ministries. In addition to a stronger core, the total number of hours required to complete an M.Div. has been reduced to 81-84. They even offer distance education options for those who cannot relocate to North Carolina to study.
