There are so many great ways to grow as a leader. One way is through listening to a proven leader and their podcast. I love listening to podcasts. They really help develop my leadership.

I wanted to quickly share a few podcast that every church leader should be listening to on a regular basis.

I would encourage you to read his stuff on leadership and listen to him any chance you get when he begins to speak on leadership.
