S4 Ep. 82 // Kadi Cole on Leading Through Disruption

Leading Second Podcast

We have a first-time guest to the Leading Second Podcast, but she is a fast friend to our tribe and me. I am so excited to introduce Kadi Cole! Her professional resume speaks for itself, but Kadi was in leadership for 16 years at Christ Fellowship Church in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. She served in key leadership positions as the church grew from 3,500 to 23,000 and launched eight additional campuses. Her final role was as Executive Director of Multisite as she oversaw all campuses. She has since launched her personal business, Kadi Cole and Company. And her newest passion project is helping church leaders who want to do a better job developing the female leadership talent in their congregations. She even has a new book that was just released on that very topic! As we’ve done every week this season, we have one big question for our guests, and this week, the question is, “What disruptions should the local church embrace in this season?”Kadi is an absolute expert on leadership development, church multisite, and growing staff and volunteer teams from within your congregation. She has a wealth of knowledge and wisdom in so many topics. We start our conversation by talking about her latest passion, which is women in ministry. Two things that Kadi has said and stuck out so much to me are, “suddenly, every church is a global church” and “communication is the new excellence.” We spend the bulk of our conversation unpacking these statements. The metric is no longer just butts in seats on a Sunday, so what does that look like now? And how can we thrive through disruption? We wrap things up by talking about diversity in ministry. This is a unique conversation with somebody who has such a unique voice, and I cannot wait for you to listen. Every interaction I’ve had with Kadi has left me both encouraged and challenged in the best possible way! I hope this conversation leaves you the same.Brandon*editor’s note: Brandon, Lindsay, and Zane just welcomed baby Glo into their family this week!

Ep. 24 | Increase your Leadership Base: How to maximize the largest untapped group in your congregation w/ Kadi Cole

PROPEL | A Podcast by Fellowship Pacific

One of the most common frustrations facing our churches is simply not having enough leaders. So often we have a great vision and a great strategy, but we run into this lid that is the number of qualified, faithful leaders we need to carry it out. But what if God has already provided the leaders we need to carry out the vision He gave us? The reality is that there is a large group of untapped potential in most of our congregations—the women. And when you find ways to identify, develop, and release the female leaders in your church you will significantly increase the leadership base available to you! In this episode, our regional director, David Horita, talks to Kadi Cole—bestselling author of the book Developing Female Leaders and founder & CEO of Kadi Cole & Company where she works extensively with leaders in both business and ministry. They discuss the challenge of how to release the potential of every single leader in the church so we don’t miss out on any of the giftedness, voice, and perspective that God has placed in our congregations.
