In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Eric Geiger are joined by not just one guest but two: Kevin Peck, Lead Pastor of The Austin Stone Community Church and Josh Patterson, Lead Pastor over Ministry Leadership at The Village Church. During their conversation, they discuss learning from older leaders, leading well in their homes, and keeping the long journey of leadership in mind.
“As leaders, we need to be faithful with the stewardship of time that God gives us to impact the world.”
“As leaders grow and develop their own voice, you must fight to still lead together.”
“The minute we assume something is going to happen, it doesn’t happens.”
“Everyday I have to ask God to make his will be done and not mine, otherwise, I am going to make a dumpster fire of my life.”
“I have a finish line every day where I stop working.”
“If we think that our finish line is bed time, than we can view our kids as another job.”
“I try to make it a priority not to only be around other leaders and other Christians. I want to connect with people who don’t care about my title.”
“We can lead successfully in other places, but if we don’t lead well in our home, the other places we lead will eventually lose credibility.”
“As leaders, there comes a time where have to say no to things that are good, but they are not great.”
“Our kids are going to love Jesus not by what we tell then, but by what they see us doing.”
“Young leaders need to spend a lot more time listening and preparing for the long haul.”
“Leadership is a long journey. It is not something you can quick bake. It is not a microwavable skill.”
“Leaders navigate and negotiate change.”
