  • Lay It Down

    Devotionals | May 13, 2016

    What are you proudest of in life? Where do you find your security? While the world teaches us to cling to things like relationships, accomplishments, and possessions, God asks us to place them on the altar before Him. Paul shows us the way. As he laid down all that he was and had, he found more than he imagined. What does God need you to lay down?

  • Remaining Engaged in the Middle

    Blog | Robert and Lori Ferguson | May 12, 2016

    Leadership, at the beginning, is exciting because of the way it is shiny and new.  The vision has been set, and it’s easy to focus on serving as everyone reaches forward. People rally around with enthusiasm and energy. The way appears clear, and it’s exhilarating.

    And then, there’s the end.

  • God’s Grace and Our Effort

    Devotionals | May 11, 2016

    Where has God placed you? What spheres of influence has He opened up to you? What task has He placed in front of you? Opportunities come to us from God’s hand and for His purposes. Draw confidence from knowing that we are never alone as we lead in Jesus’ name. His grace is at work in and through us. Focus on exalting God only with all that we are—heart, head, hands, and habits.

    Blog | Megan Pacheco | May 10, 2016

    “It is true that integrity alone won't make you a leader, but without integrity, you will never be one.” Zig Ziglar

    In May 2005, Andy Roddick, the top seeded U.S. tennis player, was playing a match in the Rome Masters against much lower seeded Fernando Verdasco. Fernando had already lost the first set and was about to lose the second. As Fernando served for what seemed his last opportunity to save the game, the umpire called his ball out, giving the match to Roddick. By all accounts, Andy was the winner.

    The #1 Sign You’re Edging God Out

    Blog | Phyllis Hendry Halverson | May 05, 2016

    Warning signs are important: a light on your car’s dashboard; the sound of a siren behind you when you are driving; distant thunder before a storm hits. Doctors take your temperature and blood pressure to look for warning signs about the state of your health. We also must check for signs to alert us that our hearts may be out of alignment with God.

    What are the warning signs that we may be falling into the trap of pride or fear? And what safeguards can we leaders put in place to prevent this from happening?

  • Phil Hodges is a co-founder of Lead Like Jesus and a co-author of Lead Like Jesus Revisited.

    In today's podcast Phil discusses ways marketplace leaders, or for that matter most leaders, misunderstand and underestimate Jesus as a leader. Phil shines a light on how so many leaders tend to look at Jesus as irrelevant to their day-to-day operations, and how this separation between the secular and the sacred can take a leader on a very dangerous, or even destructive path.
