Takeaways from the Episode
Hey Everyone and welcome to a brand new episode of the Young Church Leaders Podcast.
Today’s episode is going to be short.
The first thing I want to do is say thank you from all of us at youngchurchleader.org. We love what we’re about and what we get to do. We don’t take it for granted. So thanks for tuning in, thanks for joining the conversation, and thanks for sharing with us your heart for ministry, leadership, heart development and growing your relationship with Jesus.
What I want to do over the next few minutes is simply update you on everything that’s happening with the Young Church Leaders Podcast.
January will mark the beginning of month 20 on the podcast. We will have been airing episodes every other week for over a year and half.
I love the opportunity I get to have meaningful conversations with leaders from around the world who are engaged in life and ministry. Leaders who are working out what it means to be a leader in the church in 2018 and beyond.
Over this time, I’ve been able to connect with and talk to leaders who are tired. Leaders who are worn out. Leaders who need encouragement and support.
I’ve also been able to connect with leaders who are alive and energized and who are doing amazing things for the kingdom. Leaders who are seeing God at work.
Our heart at youngchurchleaders.org is that we would be an encouragement for you and that we would provide you with tangible ways to develop your heart as you pursue Jesus and learn to lead like Jesus.
At the end of the day, we believe you will get better as a leader when you give your heart the attention it deserves.
So, what are we up to and where are we going?
The first thing is that the Young Church Leaders Podcast will be taking a break through the month of December. I’m doing this for a few reasons.
As the host, I’ve been recording episodes since January of 2017. I’ve loved every second of it. But I’m realizing more and more in my own journey with Jesus, and at the stage of life my family is at, I need a break. So I’m going to take a break through December to be with my family, run around in the snow with my 9 month old, and spend as much time with Jesus as possible. I’m taking a month off as a way to recharge and reset before we launch into 2019.
The second thing I’m going to be doing, is gearing up for a brand new launch of the Young Church Leaders Podcast. We’re going to have fresh content, new interviews and a renewed energy for raising the conversation about the heart.
What is that going to look like?
Well, starting January we are going to be releasing a new episode of the podcast every week! That’s right, weekly content delivered right to the palm of your hand. Podcasts will be a mixture of interviews with today’s top leaders, young leaders and some leaders you’ve never heard of before, but leaders who are none the less learning to pursue a heart like Jesus’ and becoming more like him, learning to do the things he did. Episodes will also include practical tips and tricks for developing spiritual practices that allow you to spend time with Jesus, gauge the health of your heart and develop as a leader.
The podcast will also be made available for the first time ever on Youtube and other video format. We’re hoping that this content will help you grow as a leader but will also be a tool you can use with your teams — allowing you to enter into conversations about the heart with the leaders who you work with on a daily basis.
I’m so excited for this project and very much looking forward to 2019 for the Young Church Leaders Podcast. I can’t wait for you to get your hands on this content and I’m praying even now that it will help you become more like Jesus and develop your heart as a leader.
So, don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from us through the month of December. Know that we’re working on some really cool projects that we can’t wait to share with you.
I’m praying for you.
