If you're young, or even old, figure out what the through-line is. Figure out the things that are true about you, God-given strengths and wiring. - @bradlomenick Click To Tweet The average American parenting and school system thing is, I'm going to move these kids, or my kids, toward something that feels successful, compared to moving them toward the things that are wired already in them. - @bradlomenick Click To Tweet Are you willing to crush the current assignment? - @bradlomenick Click To Tweet Make sure that you're allowing for the people closest to you to still get the best of you.- @bradlomenick Click To Tweet

Lead With Confidence and Clarity. Grow Your Church.

As leaders, we tend to see the challenges and roadblocks before other people do.

We've all been there before...

  • You need to refresh your vision for the future but know that change will be an issue for that person.
  • You're overstaffed (or missing a key role) and can't find the right person to fill the role.
  • You aren't reaching enough new people even though you've tried everything that's working for other churches.
  • You can see the issue but aren't confident in what to do about it.

And with another Sunday morning coming up, it'll just have to wait until next week when you have a few minutes to figure it out.

Now ask yourself this:

What would it feel like to have those answers at your fingertips 24/7?

Whether it's reaching new people, improving your preaching, increasing volunteers, refreshing your vision, engaging your staff, or any of the countless challenges we face as church leaders, The Art of Leadership Academy will equip you to lead your church with confidence and clarity.

Between comprehensive church leadership courses, live coaching calls, staff and volunteer training resources, and direct access to a private online community of senior-level church leaders, you'll get the exact insights and answers that fuel your church for growth.
