He thought God was calling him into the ministry and nearly went to seminary before he discerned a different path, one of serving people in business and public service. So what is it like to lead as a Christian while being the chief executive of a state? And in such a divided world, where so many are disillusioned from serving in leadership, why should Christians step forward? These questions and more I posed to former Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, who joined my podcast this week.
Governor Haslam has a new book, Faithful Presence which outlines his vision of leadership. Most of us will never serve in public office. But there are a lot of lessons we can learn wherever we lead, in the home, at church, in the marketplace. I hope you give it a listen.
