Episode 034: Lead Like Jesus with Boyd Bailey

Boyd Bailey

Leadership is hard, but important. How do we learn to lead in our homes, our workplaces, and in the world around us? Today’s guest is a wise leader in his own right but is joining us to talk about the greatest leadership example of them all: Jesus.

On this episode, David is joined by a great friend of Giving Company and one of our first ever guests on the iDisciple Podcast, Wisdom Hunters founder Boyd Bailey. Boyd is the writer of the Wisdom Hunters Daily Devotional, which reaches over 100,000 readers every day with God’s wisdom. In addition, he’s written over a dozen of books, co-founded Ministry Ventures, and is currently the president of the Georgia National Christian Foundation.

Boyd recently released his latest book, Learning to Lead Like Jesus, which takes readers through a series of principles Jesus demonstrated in his own ministry that we can apply to our lives today. These 11 principles will show all of us how to serve, inspire, and equip others exactly how Jesus did thousands of years ago.

We pray that David and Boyd’s discussion teaches you how to be the best leader you can be, and how the wisdom of Jesus and radically change your perspective on leadership.
