What Do You Need to Learn?

Kara Powell | May 13, 2011

On Wednesday, I had the chance to share about FYI and Sticky Faith for ten minutes at the Barnabas Group here in L.A. I’ve been very grateful for the Barnabas Group for its mission is to connect ministry leaders with marketplace leaders. I’ve had a chance to meet with many of the L.A. Barnabas Group members and have been so encouraged by their insights and wisdom.

This week, Dr. Walt Wright, the executive director of the Max De Pree Center for Leadership at Fuller Seminary was one of the keynote speakers (yes, it was quite a Fuller day). He encouraged us to ask 3 questions of ourselves as leaders, one of which was: What do you need to learn right now?

That’s a great question. It sounds a bit like an Oprah-ish question to me.

My answer to that question: I want to learn how to change the world for kids.

What is your answer to that question? I’m curious…
