Zealous for Good

Talent is not…

We can’t all be extraordinary by the world’s standards but we can all learn to live a life of love. Rather than seeking fame or working to elevate our status we can learn to mean more to people. Pursue character, sacrifice and become a ministry to others.

Leaders, details matter.

As a leader or manager, it’s becoming more and more apparent to me that in order to serve effectively I have to care about the details (our system and process).

Diagnosis & Progress

I recently experienced an extreme “health scare” involving my heart. Being in a new city, new job and having a new church family made things even more difficult as I was unsure when it happened who I should even call.

Five things I learned about relationship + influence.

In Tribute to Lawrence Neisent Pastor Lawrence Neisent, aka @pastordude, is the chief influencer of my current life and leadership.

I woke up this morning thinking about the many things I’ve learned and received over our twenty plus years of connection and I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed….
