    Unseen Leadership Episode 67: Jimmy Scroggins on Discerning the Lord’s Call

    Unseen Leadership Episode 67: Jimmy Scroggins on Discerning the Lord’s Call

    In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Mike Kelsey are joined by Jimmy Scroggins who is the lead pastor at Family Church in West Palm Beach, Fl. He is also the author of Turning Everyday Conversations into Gospel Conversations and Full Circle Parenting.







    During their conversation, they discuss discerning the Lord's call, leading through love or fear, and thinking holistically about balancing family relationships and work.







    QUOTES FROM EPISODE 67:







    "If you are in leadership, you can't lead without conflict. You are going to be frustrated from time to time wherever you are in leadership.""Learning the power of chemistry and culture in leadership was important.""If you don't have some kind of a plan, your head is going to be on a swivel all of the time.""Consider your life in seasons, and almost time block your commitments so that your head is not on a swivel all of the time.""You are going to be blown around by opportunities and you are never going to be able to give the right amount of energy to what God has in front of you right now today.""You've got to love people for them, not for what they do for you.""There are two levers you pull as a leader: you are either leading through love or you are leading through fear.""I undervalued the power of institutions and I undervalued the wisdom of veteran leaders.""As a Christian thinker, we should think of ourselves holistically all the time.""I hope that I have learned to lead out of a desire to love and serve others more than desire for other people to think I am somebody."

    Unseen Leadership Episode 66: Aaron Ivey on Growth that Develops from Critical Feedback

    In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Mike Kelsey are joined by Aaron Ivey who is pastor of worship at Austin Stone in Austin, Texas. He is also a songwriter and author.







    During their conversation, they discuss how feedback helps you grow, practical steps to setting vision, and wasting time with God and people.







    QUOTES FROM EPISODE 66:







    "We want our people to crave feedback, not avoid it.""All of us want to be great at what we are doing, nobody is just OK with being mediocre.""The culture and ethos of what a team is all starts with vision.""My biggest mistake early on was not realizing that setting the vision is on the leader." "Ministry and leadership can be so fast-paced that we forget to waste time with God.""If you can build a community around 'we don't need you, but we really want you' it fosters a sense of wanting to be involved.""Creatives do a good job at the creative part, but I also want them to want to get better in terms of leadership."Surround yourself with people that are going to push you forward and that have a spirit of optimism.""God doesn't need me to accomplish any of this stuff, but He wants me, so I am going to be alone and still and quiet with Him.""You don't have to have it all together to be a great leader, but surround yourself with people to help you grow."

    In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Mike Kelsey are joined by Miguel Nunez who is a pastor, medical doctor, and speaker. He is also the author of several books including his latest, Servants for His Glory.







    During their conversation, they discuss learning from past life experiences, how serving in a church impacts our lives, and how humility affects a person.







    QUOTES FROM EPISODE 65:







    "I can relate to people in a more compassionate way from what I learned from them.""I firmly believe that your wife has to be the first person to confirm your call to ministry.""Being the head of the house does not mean that your wife has to blindly follow whatever you are thinking. The Lord gave her to you so she can help you make decisions and bring a different perspective.""Don't think of your secular work as secular, it is sacred.""You should be looking for the opportunity to serve, that is how you identify your gifts and talents.""It was a mistake for me to assume that if you did everything right that everything would go well and no one would go against you.""I realized that a lot of the unrest within us is the consequence of not being gentle and lowly.""A humble person can be taught by people over him or under him. A humble person can be a team member. A humble person is sensitive to the voice of God."

    "There is more than one way to be a faithful, fruitful, effective pastor, leader, dad, coach, seminary president.""There is more than one way to faithfully lead.""How a man handles his own ambition is one of the most important aspects of his life.""If I were to hire a person and they struck me as fundamentally unambitious, that would be a problem. But if a person is just foaming at the mouth, that would signal the alarm at the other extreme.""You can be weakening your institution by chasing unhealthy goals.""We have to remember that leadership is always contextual.""If you find yourself brushing shoulders with leaders, ask them questions about what they are learning about leadership."

It's always the result of high intent and hard work.""Excellence is doing our very best in the functions that we fulfill in our work.""It's not the product, it's more the relationship: how you are treated, how you were respected.""You have to give people a place where they feel a part.""Leadership creates an environment in which the employees want to do it and feel a part of it.""That is a serious issue with managers: moving from problem to solution instead of moving from problem to analysis to test to solution, and using the people connected with the process to do that.""The urgent thing has to be done, you can't let the fire burn around you, but after you are finished, how do you make sure the fire never happens again?""I cannot love my neighbor as myself, but I can try.""If I can identify their talent and help them to be successful in a way they can apply the talent, that's how I want to select employees.""From today on, know that in a new role as a leader you have the honor of impacting the life of people positively."

    QUOTES FROM EPISODE 61:







    "We spend our days chasing other people's uniqueness.""If we don't believe that how He uniquely made us matches what He called us to do, that is a bad theology.""Do not spend your days trying to become someone you're not. Become confident in that uniqueness God has for you.""My credibility is what gets me in the room. It's my EQ that keeps me in the room.""You have to move from self-awareness to self-management.""The more successful in ministry you become, the more isolated you become.""If you come in there and you do not honor what they've been through, what they've been working on, where they've come from, you will lose influence from the moment go.""Honor the things you want to celebrate so that they understand what you value.""Every day I want to find somebody I can celebrate and somebody I can bring life to.""Become proud of how God uniquely made you and it will blow your mind how He is going to call you to stuff when you trust that calling."
