Schools, The Next Great Mission Field

I’ve seen the world – traveling to over one hundred nations through my work as the President of OneHope – and I’m convinced of one thing: children and youth in South Florida need God’s Word just as much as children and youth in the most desolate areas around the world. While the cultures and contexts […]

Using the Leadership Trifecta

Catalytic, Strategic, and Activating Leaders make up the Leadership Trifecta. If you’re a good polycentric leader, operating in many different spheres of work, you need to be able to function within all these giftings. However, just like the Fivefold Ministry Test, a self-assessment for Christian leaders modeled out of the Book of Ephesians, at the […]

The Strategic Leader

We’ve been exploring the traits and roles that make up the Leadership Trifecta. Check out the posts on Activating and Catalytic Leaders, if you haven’t already.

What is the highest and best use of your time at work? It’s a question the OneHope team has been exploring lately. Perhaps you’ve taken personality or skills assessments before, like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or Strengths Finder, to better learn how you operate in your giftings and relate to those around you.

Polycentric Leadership

Polycentric Leadership. You may have never heard the term before, but it may just describe how you strive to live out your professional career by serving in multiple, diverse centers at the same time.

Digital Scripture Engagement: Kids Bible Experience

Guiding Children, a OneHope research study produced in partnership with Barna, opened our eyes to the relationship that today’s children have with the Bible, the Church, technology, and more.

Authenticity in Parenting and Ministry

I’m often asked how my ministry impacted my kids when they were young. To that, I say that I had an amazing example in my parents, and especially my dad.
