In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Gene Getz, author of 60 books including The Measure of a Man and the Life Essentials Study Bible. They discuss the life-long journey of learning about the pastorate and the importance of encouraging those who we have learned from.
“People are sheep and they need to be lead, and they will be lead if you have strong leadership.”
“You’ve got to keep learning all the time. If you stop learning, you are going to stop growing.”
“When I started pastoring, being a writer, I determined that if I was going to do a series I would write my sermon as if you were reading it.”
“Our main point of emphasis right now is how can we stay on top of all of the tasks we have and keep things moving in spite of this shutdown because of the virus.”
“If communication breaks down, hit it immediately and open the door of communication. That is what keeps us efficient.”
“Every one of us is built on the shoulders of someone else.”
“As I look back over my life, every door that has opened for me was opened by someone else and I was able to walk through it with their encouragement.”
