In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im are joined by Michael Kelsey, campus pastor at McLean Bible Church. During their conversation, they discuss taking time alone to be a better decision maker and working under different pastoral leadership styles.
“God’s been good and teaching me to be me and to be humble and realize I’m not David Platt.”
“I think the thing that has shaped me between the two of them is just an urgency to make sure that the gospel is clear.”
“He came in wanting to collaborate with the people who had deep roots and a lot of leadership influence in the church.”
“We have historically been a church that has offered this menu of services tailor-made to every demographic and need, but I think long-term that catches up to you.”
“I have to have quiet time every day – just stopping and having enough time alone to get clarity for leadership decisions.”
“Sometimes we short-circuit the process because it’s hard.”
“I’m much sharper, concise, and pointed in my effectiveness if I actually take a moment to think.”
“Every morning I pray based on Ephesians 5, ‘Holy Spirit I give you control today.'”
“I’ve been trying to redirect my discretionary time and energy to blessing my wife.”
“The most important thing about me is my intimacy with God and my character before Him.”
