Do you see yourself continuing to flourish as a leader in Christian service to age 84 or beyond? Well, today my conversation is with just such a leader. I hope this episode will challenge you to think about how you steward the gifts and experience God has blessed you with long-term.

What are the habits and practices that you need as a leader to be effective in the long run? One of the keys is self-leadership – taking responsibility for your ongoing growth. As years of leadership stretch into decades of leadership, how can you stay effective and focused? We will address these issues today in our conversation. 

I’m delighted to welcome Dr. Jerry White. He is the International President Emeritus of The Navigators.

Has the last year and a half left you exhausted? Are you wondering if you have the energy necessary to lead your team or organization? Well today, listen in on my conversation with a highly respected leader about the importance of a deep, interior life and rich relationship that will enhance your spiritual leadership.

The past year and a half has been a very difficult time for many leaders in ministry as well as in business.  We’ve seen that many leaders are just exhausted.  In fact, large numbers of leaders have retired years before they planned because they have run out of gas leading through the pandemic.   

Is this how you feel?  Are you exhausted and running out of energy as you try to lead your teams and organization?   

Today, we are going to explore this conversation with one of our good friends and a highly respected ministry leader.

Today we have the very special pleasure of visiting with Doug Mazza, President and COO of Joni and Friends. At the end of this year, Doug’s title will change to that of President Emeritus, as he officially retires. How many years will that be for you, Doug, in senior leadership at Joni and Friends?

Doug, I must say your Christian character and seasoned leadership have shined through each and every visit here on the Flourishing Culture Podcast. Year to year, you’ve continued to be one of the most popular guests on our podcast. So, first, I want to acknowledge your years of Christ-like leadership to the growing, worldwide ministry of Joni and Friends. I also want to give you my sincere thanks for sharing with our podcast audience your knowledge, your wisdom and your stories to help leaders build their own flourishing, organizational culture.
