In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Mike Kelsey are joined by Jimmy Scroggins who is the lead pastor at Family Church in West Palm Beach, Fl. He is also the author of Turning Everyday Conversations into Gospel Conversations and Full Circle Parenting.
During their conversation, they discuss discerning the Lord’s call, leading through love or fear, and thinking holistically about balancing family relationships and work.
QUOTES FROM EPISODE 67:
“If you are in leadership, you can’t lead without conflict. You are going to be frustrated from time to time wherever you are in leadership.”
“Learning the power of chemistry and culture in leadership was important.”
“If you don’t have some kind of a plan, your head is going to be on a swivel all of the time.”
“Consider your life in seasons, and almost time block your commitments so that your head is not on a swivel all of the time.”
“You are going to be blown around by opportunities and you are never going to be able to give the right amount of energy to what God has in front of you right now today.”
“You’ve got to love people for them, not for what they do for you.”
“There are two levers you pull as a leader: you are either leading through love or you are leading through fear.”
“I undervalued the power of institutions and I undervalued the wisdom of veteran leaders.”
“As a Christian thinker, we should think of ourselves holistically all the time.”
“I hope that I have learned to lead out of a desire to love and serve others more than desire for other people to think I am somebody.”
