In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Josh Hunter are joined by Kevin Peck who is the Lead Pastor of The Austin Stone Church and co-author of Designed to Lead.
During their conversation, they discuss Kevin’s leadership journey that brought him to the Austin Stone and how he learned to lead in the marketplace before the church, how to develop leaders in the church, and how to scale your ministry.
QUOTES FROM EPISODE 7:
“Lead often and fail just as much but learn along the way because leadership is tough, so you might as well knock out some lessons early.”
“Leadership is not this privilege of power you possess, it is a privilege of responsibility and stewardship.”
“The economics of the kingdom are so different from the economics of the world in so many ways, especially in leadership.”
“The best training that I ever got to do my job was actually in the marketplace, not the church.”
“Leading people at work in the marketplace is not the same as leading volunteers, so you must lead them through vision, not a paycheck.”
“I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” – Martin Luther
“One of the most important parts of developing leaders is intentionality.”
“If you never write down your systems and philosophies, it will never be replicable and scalable.”
“I would tell a young leader to be a hard worker, be intentional with people, and be humble with correction.”
