In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins is joined by Dean Inserra, pastor of City Church in Tallahassee, Fla., and author of The Unsaved Christian. During their conversation, they discuss the benefits of being willing to learn from your younger staff members and engaging the home and family to make an impact.
“Take heart and commit to learn from your staff. It’s not just their job to be learning from you.”
“When it comes to our lives, there is so much drama nowadays, and in that reality I think self-awareness is really important.”
“If there is a conflict on our staff at church, we probably did a bad job communicating somewhere along the line.”
“If people are on edge around you all the time, that’s a you problem and eventually you have to say why is that?”
“Work hard at not taking yourself so seriously.”
“I focus better when I am surrounded by people.”
“God gave us our family and our home to share it with other people.”
“The idol of family that happens in much of evangelical life has closed us off from using our family to make an impact.”
“Your seminary professor is not in your congregation, quit preaching to impress him.”
