In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Josh Hunter are joined by Alexandra Hoover who is a wife, mother, Bible teacher, and writer. She has the privilege of serving on staff at Transformation Church as the Assistant Director of Equipping. She’s passionate about communicating the love of Jesus, whether it be through writing or speaking.
During their conversation, they discuss how to lead up to older leaders, how to lead those who have hurt you, and how to root our identity in Christ, not our role.
QUOTES FROM EPISODE 46:
“Often as leaders, especially young leaders in our culture, we think success is microwavable.”
“Our identity has to be so rooted in Christ and who he is so that changes and transitions and challenges don’t throw us but grow us.”
“We should be working from a place of love not for a place of love.”
“We need to constantly be asking ourselves, “Am I being pushed by fear or pulled by love?”
“When I think about leadership, I think about humility.”
“We must practice humility even with those who are wrong and even with those who hurt you.”
“The biggest flex in the kingdom of God is when you are able to love those who have hurt you.”
“Remember that your identity is not defined by your role.”
