Leadership Lessons Podcast | Season 1: Episode 1 - The What & The Why
The What: Pastor Daniel Williams introduces his brand new podcast from EE Leaders with Leadership Lessons, Episode 1: The What & Why. Daniel shares his heart for this new ministry resource, having its origin growing up the son of a pastor. Seeing firsthand the impact of knowing and following God every day shaped this vision at an early age. Their family was raised with this foundation: “Jesus is real. The word of God is true. We’re going to live for Him.” Daniel gave his life to Jesus as a teen and began teaching the Bible at age 17. After seven years in full-time ministry in Olympia, Washington, God called Daniel and his wife, Laura, and their family to Delray Beach, Florida to plant a church in 2011. Redemption Church was born. The years since have only fueled Daniel’s passion for sharing Jesus and his heart for church leaders and for investing in others. “Through this podcast I want to encourage and equip you to serve Jesus, to know what a joy it is to serve Jesus and His bride. These are lessons I’m learning that I want to pass on, things I’m growing in still and learning from other people.” Episode 1 is the first of 24 podcasts in Season 1 that will be posted each Monday. eeleaders.com, the website, will include videos of the podcast for anyone to view, as well as a weekly blog and a monthly Recommended Book, and the newly released episodes of One Piece of Advice (posted on Fridays). These are short segments from pastors and other ministry leaders who will be sharing their one piece of advice for other leaders, featuring leaders from our local area, throughout the state of Florida, across the country and around the world. What a vast resource of wisdom and knowledge God has given us. There is practical wisdom, some doctrine, some theology.
One Piece of Advice - Integrity by Pastor Neil Spencer
Pastor Neil Spencer, Destin, Florida shares what he learned from his own father who is also a pastor. “Family matters. Ministry that doesn’t start at home, doesn’t start.” This is the standard, that who you are in private is who you are in public. And who you are in public is who you are in private. God has called you to be one person, to be authentic, to be genuine, sincere. This is life-giving advice: Be the one person God has called you to be, no matter where you are.
The Why: 2 Timothy 2:2 …what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also. This verse has been a guide to Daniel throughout his ministry. “I have always wanted to be a disciple maker, faithful to share what God has taught me with others.” That’s what EE Leaders is all about. A way to pass it on, to give back to others what has been given to you. It’s part of the blessing of having relationships. We learn from each other. Jesus said, “If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them” (John 13:17). “I want to challenge you, that if the Holy Spirit teaches you something through this podcast, you would implement it, that you would pass it on to other people.”
