On today’s special episode we will be talking with Pastor Chris Hodges, Lead Pastor of Church of the Highlands in Alabama and co-founder of ARC.

 

 

Takeaways from this episode…

Every pastor should consider what their reach is for their calling.

You never see people how they are, you have to train yourself to see people as they could be.

We do not need to state how people are. Speak to people as people’s potential.

Your character must sustain your skill set.

There are 3 levels of relationships: those that speak into you, those who you speak into, and those that are beside you.

Ep​ ​085:​ ​Transculturalism,​ ​Leadership,​ ​and​ ​Personal​ ​Discipline​ ​with​ ​Léonce​ ​Crump

Welcome to Episode 85 of the Joshua Gagnon Leadership Podcast!

If you enjoy listening to this podcast and it has helped you and your team in any way, please leave us a review on Apple Podcast or Stitcher or take the time to share it on social media.

Do you have a question for Pastor Josh about leadership, ministry, or any other topic we’ve covered on the podcast so far? Submit your questions to info@joshuagagnon.com or @joshgagnon on Twitter and Pastor Josh might answer it on a future episode!

Today we have a conversation with Pastor Léonce Crump, author, international speaker, Lead Pastor of Renovation Church, and one of our speakers at Activate Conference this year.

Takeaways from this episode…

You can’t go forward looking backwards.

You can’t go in a certain direction just by looking at where NOT to go.

Most people want their leaders to be better versions of what they want to be.

Transculturalism the realization of the hope of the gospel.

God always has a people covenanted to Him and to one another.

The gospel is supposed to be a message that transverses cultural differences and idiosyncrasies.

We are able to form something much more beautiful together than we are apart.

The sum of the whole is more beautiful than the individual parts.

You need to have a clear vision, strategy, and set of values of where you are going in any leadership position.

Knowing who you are is a discipline.

Lean into the way that you are made.

It’s not always that we don’t have time, it’s that we don’t always manage our time appropriately.

Urgent is not the same as important.
