Podcast cover
Read more
John Maxwell is best known for his many best-selling leadership books, and as one of the preeminent experts, speakers, and coaches on leadership.

In this episode of the Leadership Momentum Podcast, host Chris Brown sits down with Maxwell for a conversation on how the two worlds of leadership and ministry have come together in Maxwell’s life and work. Maxwell shares how his leadership—and his understanding of it—have evolved over the course of his life, and how he’s imparting that wisdom to younger generations today. He also shares the practices and rhythms that have helped him develop his personal giftings, and how these practices can work for leaders in any arena. Finally, Maxwell talks about how the idea of biblical stewardship has played a role in his leadership, and why stewardship is so important for every leader to understand. https://www.stewardshipcentral.org/podcast

Dr. Henry Cloud on Leading in a Way That Makes Sense : Episode 8

Podcast cover

You could say that Dr. Henry Cloud takes a cerebral approach to leadership. That’s because he understands the neuroscience—the brain research—behind why leaders do the things they do. In this conversation, he applies what he’s learned to specific leadership principles such as focusing on what really matters, pruning people and projects, and recognizing God as the true Source of all we do. His words may be challenging, but they also can help pastors and other church leaders become more effective in their ministries to others and to themselves. https://www.stewardshipcentral.org/podcast

Steven Furtick seems to be the picture of success. He’s a best-selling author and the lead pastor of Elevation Church, which welcomes 20,000 weekly attendees across 13 physical locations. But, Steven says, everyone from senior church leaders to volunteers to the moms in the pews—and even Steven himself—deals with feeling unqualified. In this episode of the Leadership Momentum Podcast, Steven talks with host Chris Brown about the tension between that sense of failure and the need to embrace acceptance instead. That’s the inspiration behind his newest book, (Un)Qualified: How God Uses Broken People to Do Big Things. And when leaders remind themselves that God works through our weaknesses—and help their churches to understand that too—they’ve unlocked the potential for ministry transformation. https://www.stewardshipcentral.org/podcast

As the internet and young adult pastor of The Potter’s House Church in Dallas, Onterio Green is leading thousands of people. But he also counts his own leader Bishop T.D. Jakes as one of the most influential pastors in the country. In this episode of the Leadership Momentum Podcast, host Chris Brown talks with Onterio about a leadership issue deeply important at The Potter’s House: the matter of honor and loyalty. Onterio explains why it’s common in his church for people to place their leaders in such high esteem; it honors God by honoring a leader’s authority in your life. He also talks about honoring those beneath you in the org chart as well as red flags that signal an abuse of honor. https://www.stewardshipcentral.org/podcast

Firing team members comes with the territory for leaders, even in a church setting. But firing, like anything else, needs to be done with compassion, clarity, empathy and generosity. In this episode of the Leadership Momentum podcast, host Chris Brown explains why firing incompetent or problematic team members is important to the health of any organization. The goal, he says, is not to have to fire anyone by hiring the right people for the job in the first place, and then leading those people well. But, more than likely, every leader will have to terminate a team member at least once. For those times, Chris shares tips for making the process as painless and positive as possible. https://www.stewardshipcentral.org/podcast
