Episode 011: Clay Scroggins on Leading Without Authority

Clay Scroggins

On the latest episode of the iDisciple Podcast, iDisciple CEO David Henriksen is joined by Clay Scroggins, the lead pastor of one of the largest congregations in America, North Point Community Church. Clay will be sharing with us stories from his early days in ministry working under great leaders such as Andy Stanley and Louie Giglio, as well some of the leadership insight from his brand new book, How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge: Leveraging Influence When You Lack Authority.

Over the years, Clay has worked his way through many organizational levels at North Point Ministries, from facilities manager to high school volunteer, and knows all too well the frustrations of authority deprivation. His new book takes a look at some of the challenges you might face when you want to lead but aren’t in charge, and offers wisdom and tips to improve your walk as a leader.

We pray that David and Clay’s discussion will challenge you to lead well, no matter what position you find yourself in!
