Would you like to be led more by Jesus, live and lead more like Jesus, and lead more to Jesus? Today's podcast is just for you.

Sometimes in life, we can lose our wonder.  It can happen gradually or overnight.  In talking with many Christian leaders struggling through the past year, I hear about a lot of people being exhausted, tired, thinking about retiring early, even quitting. Some have described it as ‘the dark night of the soul’ where there has been an absence of the presence of God in our lives.   

In the next few minutes, I want to give you a new kind of pathway so you can live more like Jesus—and perhaps renew the sense of His presence, especially in your work. And I’ve just the person to take us on this adventure. 

Dr. Steve Brown, President of Arrow Leadership and author of a very timely, engaging book titledJesus Centered: Focusing on Jesus in a Distracted WorldSteve, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.
