Bob Russell on Learning from Mistakes He’s Made as a Leader

Bob Russell served as the founding pastor of Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky.  In the Duke McCall Lecture on Leadership delivered November 3, 2015 at my alma mater, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, he shares the mistakes he made as a leader and the lessons he learned from those mistakes.  This is such a good listen, and helpful to any leader in the church and beyond.  This would be good for any pastor’s gathering you have to discuss and learn.

  1. Confront problems early.
  2. Know your weaknesses and delegate accordingly.  Stay in your strengths.
  3. Give priority to your family.
  4. Be content when it comes to statistics.
