Leading Forward—When individual members of the team get better, teams get better
The only way for the church to get better is for the team to get better, and for the team to get better the individual members of the team have to get better. That means you! You must keep improving your personal growth capacity in order to improve the team.

Leading Forward: Locating Your Non-Negotiable Reality
No one wants to feel stuck—stuck in the past, or stuck in the current. One of the constant themes of scripture is the theme of moving forward. So as leaders we have to remember that God’s not lingering in yesterday, but he wants to help us move forward into tomorrow.
In this episode we will discuss five very practical questions you can ask yourself in order to assess your current position as a leader.
“To look forward, you have to first face forward.” —Kevin Gerald
Young Leaders Panel with Kevin Gerald on Getting it Right with Authority
Honor is essential to any group that wants to make progress. It's not optional. Everything is better with honor. But our culture today has seen a drift and decay on the subject of honoring authority. We had a chance to bring some young leaders on the podcast to talk with Pastor Kevin about the subject of honoring authority. Here are some of the questions they asked:
What is a mistake a leader may make to unintentionally or indirectly dishonor authority?
How can we help leaders differentiate between the voices of this world to find the right one so that they can ultimately submit under authority?
How would you handle a team members who have come from bad authority backgrounds?
Can you speak into the importance of being depended on (by their leader) and following through and also how you teach young leaders about being dependable and responsible without crushing their free spiritedness and creativity?
Today's culture is quick to disrespect authority. It's popular to point out the failures in others. This is one trend that we can't afford to follow. We must let God shape our attitudes about authority. In this episode, Pastor Kevin lays out four steps to honoring authority. Our hope is that this can be a paradigm shift for young leaders and we can begin to move the needle towards honor in our churches and communities.
