How can we take action to care for our own souls as we are serving others? In this episode, I'm joined by Dan Reiland. Dan serves as the executive director for leadership expansion at 12 Stones Church in Lawrenceville, Georgia, where he also has served for 20 years as the executive pastor. Previously, Dan spent two decades serving with John Maxwell. First as the executive pastor at Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, and then as vice president for leadership and church development at Maxwell Leadership. Together, Dan and I explore four prominent areas of soul care for pastors and ministry leaders. And then Dan shares experiences from his own life that helped illustrate how we can incorporate soul care into our lives as well.

Some key takeaways from this conversation:
Dan Reiland on leadership pressure: "As the church grows, the pace increases and the pressure increases… and that's where sometimes leaders can get unhealthy."
Dan Reiland on centering our lives: "Every one of us has to find that sort of soul-deep, quiet, walk-with-God space that brings us back to center on a daily basis."
Dan Reiland on leadership anxiousness: "It’s that low-grade anxiousness, that grind over a long period of time with discouragement, that can really take a leader out."
