Leader, Draw Near podcast
Can You Spare 4 Minutes?
That’s the average length of OCF’s new weekly devotional podcast for leaders. Who is a leader? You are—the one who turns to God for wisdom and direction in leading others.
Leader, Draw Near is based on the book written by Col Larry Simpson, USAF (Ret.). The podcast features 12 narrators from a variety of ranks, branches of service, and walks of life.
Each podcast devotional is fashioned to prompt reflection on a specific topic. Listeners are encouraged to search out each Scripture reference and to lean into God for more light as He meets you where you are. Each episode ends with a few Points to Ponder, which are perfect for personal reflection, or for use with a mentor or in a small group setting.
The leader who intentionally integrates the teachings of Scripture into daily decision making will have lasting influence and will lead with integrity, humility, and a servant’s heart.

From a leadership perspective, I must ask: What enables Christian leaders to maintain the charge when all around us say, “Give up?” Oaths, contracts, and legal agreements bind some to the task, but that which binds the Christian and Christian leader is God’s demonstrated faithfulness.
Great leaders are not satisfied with the status quo or content with mediocre gains. As a leader in the home and workplace, how comfortable are you in asking God for big things?
By what do we choose to be mastered? Men and women who have committed to serve in the military might easily, if jokingly, identify the military as their master. Do Christian military personnel see this in a different light?
As Christ followers one of the questions we must consider is “Do we find it hard to show mercy?” In striving to live out one’s faith in one’s profession, Christian leaders must rightly handle this issue.
