Courageous Leadership

Posted By Web Team On May 23, 2009 @ 1:08 am In Employees and Culture,Multimedia | 8 Comments

Courageous leadership Our ministry takes place in some of the toughest, grittiest places on the planet, but we face these hard realities with an adventuresome spirit.

In the midst of this chaotic world, we do not waiver and we do not blink, as we pursue our single-minded strategy of “Christian holistic development of children in poverty [3] through sponsorship.” We will never raise a white flag in surrender to the evil raging against us.

In the face of extreme poverty, courageous leadership requires determination and faith. Courage isn’t the absence of fear, it’s moving forward despite the fear.

“Courage is fear that has said it’s prayers.” – Karl Barth

Listen [4] to a member of our leadership team talk about the importance of courageous leadership.
