Leading Second exists to equip a community of UNCOMMON church builders. Join Brandon Stewart and special guests for this unique look at building the local church and serving a vision bigger than yourself.
S4 Ep. 104 // Brandon Stewart on Leading Yourself
The end of the year always brings some time of reflection but also planning and dreaming for what is to come ahead. I want to start 2022 with some intention. Most people likely want to be a better leader at the end of the year than we were at the start, but what are we going to do about it?
S4 Ep. 103 // Clayton Baird on Leading in a Culture of Offense
Today I am so excited to welcome a new friend to the podcast! Clayton Baird joins me as we talk through “How to Lead in A Culture of Offense.” Clayton and his wife Bethany have served on staff at Celebration Church in Jacksonville, Florida, for ten years. He fits right in with the Leading Second family as he has done just about everything in his ministry journey, including worship pastor, youth & young adult pastor, and campus pastor. He is currently serving as a teaching pastor at Celebration while also overseeing Celebration Everywhere - the global online church community. Clayton is somebody who really just embodies the Leading Second spirit, and I’m so glad that he agreed to sit down with me for a little while.

S4 Ep. 102 // Dan Lord on Leadership Development, Transition, and Navigating God's Call
We start this episode with another incredible Top Five from Taylor Persello, and you’re not going to want to miss it. Then our conversation today is with our great friend Dan Lord. Dan is the pastor of Victory Church in St. Louis, MO. I’m also joined by BJ Cooper, who is on the team at Victory Church and has a bit of gold in him as well. The three of us talk about development, alignment, and transition.
S4 Ep. 101 // Brandon Stewart on Influence vs Authority
Every once in a while, I have something that I want to take an episode and talk about myself. Well, this is one of those weeks. I’ve had something weighing on me for a while, and I finally feel like it’s something I need to take an episode and talk about. So if you’re a part of this tribe, if Leading Second has meant anything to you, or if you view me as any type of guide or pastor in your life, I want to take today’s conversation and have a pastoral call or pastoral talk with you today. I want to open up a discussion about influence vs. authority.
S4 Ep. 100 // 100th Episode Special w/ Larry Brey on Cultivating Your Calling
Here we are at our 100th episode!! I can’t believe we made it this far and if you’ve been with us for any amount of time, thank you so much for your support and for being a part of this tribe. We start this episode with a HUGE announcement that I am so excited about, so don’t miss that. Then I am joined with some friends, Dillon Ritchie, Kelly Goff, Tracy Keene, and Josiah Beougher, as we sit down with Larry Brey to talk about cultivating your calling.
S4 Ep. 99 // Collin Henderson on the Mindset of a Leader
We kick things off today with a special segment for Pastor Appreciation month where some of our Leading Second tribe answered a few questions about their own pastors! Then we dive into a rich conversation with a first-time guest to our podcast, Collin Henderson. Collin is from my hometown, Puyallup, WA! He’s a mental performance coach, speaker, and author who just released a new book called ‘Quiet Mind’ (and ‘Quiet Mind for Kids’). During this conversation, we talk about the impact of a leader’s mindset and its effect on their ministry.

Brandon has a way of asking the right questions, pulling out the right words with guest that will move you forward along with your team. In leading along side my husband, we are thankful for this podcast and continually to encourage our team to not miss an episode.
Love this podcast! Each episode has some nugget that I take away. Sometimes my toes are stepped on, sometimes my heart is encouraged, sometimes my mind asks questions, sometimes my spirit is stirred...
No matter what though, I always take away something meaningful and relevant for my role as a second chair leader! Thank you!
