Leaders must be learners, and one of the best ways I learn is listening to other leaders. I enjoy reading books about church, theology, and church leadership, and I enjoy listening to podcasts. The great thing about podcasts is that I can listen to them in the car and when I’m relaxing. I even listen to podcasts while I mow the yard each week (which takes several hours considering the size of our yard)

I have been listening to podcasts using the default Apple Podcasts app, but I plan on trying out the Overcast app soon. I also typically listen to podcasts at 1 1/2 times the normal speed, but that takes some practice and patience to absorb what you are listening to at a high speed.

Here are my current favorites. Click the picture for the link to the podcast.

The Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast is my current favorite. Carey does a great job interviewing and asking questions. His guests are humble and knowledgable, and  I always finish feeling encouraged.

The 200 churches podcast exists to provide encouragement to ministry leaders and pastors of smaller churches. Since I minister in a rural area, this one has really helped me not feel discouraged.

Andy Stanley has become one of the premier teachers on church leadership. He stretches my thinking and helps me gain clarity in how to communicate vision to our church.

And finally, I guess I have to mention that our church has our own sermon podcast. Click here to listen to our Cornerstone Services each week.
