  • Drew Bailey, Marketing Manager at FedEx and a recipient of the FedEx Five Star Award, shares with us his incredible story of God using adversity to transform his life. Drew, by all accounts, was least likely to achieve success.

  • Up to Jerusalem

    Devotionals | March 23, 2016

    Jesus’ determination to go up to Jerusalem reveals His understanding of God’s call, as well as His commitment and composure as a leader. He knew what the next few days signified in His life and ministry. He knew the importance of these days in fulfilling God’s eternal plan for the good of the world. Nothing would keep Him from going up to Jerusalem. He was not an unwilling victim, but an active participant in fulfilling God’s purposes.

  • Obedience: Leadership in Action (Follow the Leader)

    Blog | Gilbert Camacho | March 22, 2016

    There would be little argument that Moses, David, Boaz and Shamgar – or more recently Colin Powell, Dwight Eisenhower, Harry Truman and John F. Kennedy – were great leaders. There would undoubtedly be less argument if we stated that Jesus was a great leader.  But, little attention is given to the fact that they were also great “followers.”

  • A Week to Remember

    Devotionals | March 21, 2016

    Holy Week is here. The events of Palm Sunday begin the final sequence of events that lead to the cross. Realizing that His disciples would not understand everything, Jesus did His best to prepare them for what was to come. After His resurrection, He opened their minds to appreciate the significance of all that occurred.

  • Making the Best of It

    Devotionals | March 18, 2016

    The condition of our hearts is often revealed in unexpected moments. Delays happen, things don’t go our way, change is sprung upon us. What comes out of us at times like these—groans, complaints, and resentment? Or do we take a deep breath and adopt a Christ-like attitude by trusting that God is in control and is at work in all things. Choose to look at life through Jesus’ eyes and receive what He has for you, especially when things don’t appear to be going your way.

    Two Influencers a Wise Leader Will Avoid

    Blog | Megan Pacheco | March 17, 2016

    “Choose your friends wisely,” my mom said.

    At the time her advice sounded overprotective and patronizing, but the older I grew, the more appreciative I became of this simple truth. I’m now repeating the same mantra to my 7- and 9-year-old sons in hope they will understand the power of this choice—sooner rather than later.

    Choosing and empowering the right people within a leader’s organization is as critical as choosing the right friends and influencers in his or her personal life.

  • A Community of Forgivers

    Devotionals | March 16, 2016

    Despite the work that God is doing to transform us into men and women who lead like Jesus, there will be times when we fall short of His example. When this happens, we do well to remember that Jesus not only bought our forgiveness and forgives us, He also models how we are to forgive others. There is nothing we can do to separate us from God’s forgiveness. As those forgiven by Him, let us extend forgiveness to others in Jesus’ name.

  • Surprised by God’s Generosity

    Devotionals | March 14, 2016

    What personal cost do you experience in choosing to serve others and follow Jesus’ leadership mandate? Make no mistake about it, serving is costly. We lay down human desires in exchange for divine calling, methods, and goals. Jesus describes this as laying down our lives for Him, as taking up our cross, and following Him. If we do not initially experience the cost of His calling, we will. Yet in the exchange, we find life eternal, the very presence and power of God at work in and through us.
