You can be excellent no matter where you are, no matter what kind of business you are in, and no matter what kind of church you are leading. In this episode, we discuss another Family Church Leadership Principle, to be excellent. Our guests are Dr. Mark Warnock, who oversees our Residency Program, and Tyler Core, Pastor to Students and Families for our network. Mark also leads worship at North Stuart Baptist Church, while Tyler oversees the 6-12th grade and college ministries across all of our neighborhood churches. They share what excellence means, what it looks like, and how doing whatever we do with excellence is a part of our worship of and to the Lord (as seen in the book of Colossians). Join us as we talk about excellence in leadership, how it should be embraced comprehensively as a lifestyle, and practical guidelines to follow when establishing a culture of excellence.
