Leadership begins at the feet of Jesus.

Division. Disagreement. Tension. Whether, you're describing the first century or today, the adjectives remain the same. How can we learn to lead, influence, and shine like stars in such a divided culture? Paul's letter to the Philippians offers a great place to begin.

This seven-session Bible study dives deeply into this love letter to a people the apostle poured his heart and soul into. It will give you fresh insight into familiar verses and point you to the path of real influence. And it all starts at the feet of Jesus.

  • Session 5: Empowerment (15:23)--In Session 5, Brent has a conversation with Dr. Michael Catt about empowerment. If not for his desire to empower others to live and lead out of their strengths, millions would never have been impacted by the films Sherwood Baptist Church has produced over the last 20 years.
  • Session 6: The Myth of Confidence​ (13:59)--In Session 6, Brent learns from activist Wendy Wright some of the truths of rightly placed confidence. When your goal is to know Jesus, your confidence is in the right place and the myth of self-confidence is exposed.
