On Leadership
Episode 4 — Overcoming Unhealthy Tensions to Lead Like Jesus

This season has been demotivating and exhausting. Depression, anxiety and discontentment are said to be at all-time highs for church leaders. So, we “get” where you are. Nevertheless, opposition always carries seeds of opportunity.

Perhaps the most strategic opportunity resulting from COVID requires that we pause and reflect deeply on our current ministry and personal scorecards. Do our priorities reflect the heart of God? In what ways have our scorecards become more “me-centered” than “Jesus-centered”?

In this episode, Larry Walkemeyer and Todd Wilson will seek to help you recognize unhealthy factors that are shaping your personal scorecard.

After decades of church leadership, we know challenging seasons when we see them.

This short booklet, 12 Tensions That Shape an Inwardly Focused Scorecard, seeks to help you recognize unhealthy factors that are shaping your personal scorecard. Download for free here.
