In this very special episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Dan Iten for the first time (or the second) in the history of this podcast will ask Todd Adkins the 5 leadership questions. They discuss how God is influencing Todd’s leadership today and some of the biggest lessons he has learned over the last 500 episodes of this podcast.
“Instead of looking at our lives and saying, ‘are we getting better and better day by day as a Christian?’ That is what I am called to do. I’m not called to win. I can’t win it compared to Christ. Yes, I am a loser. But I’m not playing that game. I’m an eternal being. I’m playing an infinite game and if anybody should understand that it should be Christians that we should look at each day getting better and better.” – Todd Adkins
“As pastors, even as Christians, our fruit does grow on other people’s trees. And that’s not us taking credit for what other people do. It is to say, the fruit of a Christian is another Christian, the fruit of volunteers and other volunteer, and the fruit of a leader is another leader.” – Todd Adkins
“If I am not learning daily, I am not leading daily.” – Todd Adkins
“If we’re intentional with anybody, it should be with our family.” – Todd Adkins
“You can overestimate what can get done in one year and underestimate what can get done in five.” – Todd Adkins
“Your role is to do the best that you can do wherever God has placed you and keep the room clean so that when others look at your ministry, your business, or at your role, they go, ‘man, he’s doing a great job, she’s doing a great job.’” – Todd Adkins
