What's next for the podcast? 

....insert a drumroll. 

Ok, no drumroll. Just a simple announcement.

What's next? Interviews, conversations, and collaborations with Christian leaders who are leveraging their Clifton Strengths and leading with courage. 

We're calling the series (that might just be a new podcast name) Courage & Strengths. 

It's an opportunity to explore with others how different Clifton Strengths come to life around disciple-making; what courageous leadership looks like in this season; and how one leader is navigating the unique leadership challenges during a pandemic. 

The conversations are meant to encourage you, equip you, and give you hope for a new day in ministry. 

We don't have to tell you, 2020 has been hard. So whether you're listening to this in September 2020 when it dropped or in a different season, there is something here for you.

You'll find a celebration of a leader in ministry alongside an exploration of resources. Think about "resources" as broad as you possibly can think about it. We're not talking curriculum, but how the community of people, the material assets, and the giftedness of leaders come to life in a particular context. 

Further, this is an opportunity to be encouraged. And who doesn't need encouragement right now?

Finally, you'll hear examples of HOPE, our disciple-making model. And, you'll hear about hope through examples of the possibilities, detours, and goals leaders are exploring.

Now, if you're thinking, yeah, but that sounds like it's removed from reality. Nope. The leaders we talk with are vulnerable with the tough stuff in leadership as well. The dash of reality checking they share grounds everything they share in the realities of leadership: it's hard, it's beautiful, it's life-giving, it's exhausting, and it's a privilege.

We look forward to sharing with you the conversations we're having with leaders and their stories of courage and leveraging their strengths.
