We’ve got a great conversation ahead with the dynamic and visionary Ashley Wooldridge, senior pastor of Christ Church of the Valley in Phoenix. Ashley’s story takes us from his humble beginnings in small-town Arizona to becoming the shepherd of a thriving church family of 40,000 souls. His leadership philosophy, which hinges on simplicity, is driven by a passion to transform the church into the world’s best-led organization.
Maybe you’re listening and you feel like you’re in the middle of a waiting season. Ashley lends some insight into that experience from the lives of biblical figures such as David, Nehemiah, Daniel, Jesus, and Paul. We look at how those waiting seasons can shape us into the people God wants us to be. We’ll also have a chance to talk through what it’s like leading from the second chair, the potency of teamwork in leadership, and share some simple ways to apply these principles. Listen in to gain insights on leadership, spiritual growth, and how to maximize impact in your church and beyond.
