S01 Episode 6: Leading Through Tough Times

Hard times are like God’s classroom. We can look at it as a time to learn and grow. Adversity is an opportunity for greater clarity, maturity, and blessing. Tough times don’t last, but faithful people do. The test for every leader during challenges is the choice between grabbing for control and trusting God. Listen to this conversation with John’s friend and pastor, Chris Railey.


In tough times:

  1. Listen.
  2. Obey.
  3. Get up.
  4. Steward.
  5. Build.
  6. Dig.



●     James 1:2-3 NIV: Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that testing of your faith produces perseverance.

●     Joshua 1:8 NIV: Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
