Leading in the Way of Jesus

1 hr 33 min

We just love Jesus-y people like MaryKate Morse. MaryKate has a proven track-record of teaching Christian leaders how to skillfully lead in the way of Jesus while practicing the way of Jesus deeper into their own inner lives. We all can be guilty of having a great Jesus-centred theology, yet, that same theology may not impact how we lead staff, structure our organizations, and influence the leadership cultures we create in our churches. Pull up a chair and let’s chat with MaryKate about how a Jesus-centred approach makes a difference in how we lead church as mission, a body of believers, and an organization.
