The Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast

Jon Chasteen talks about what he learned after being picked (at age 34) to be the senior pastor of a megachurch after the founding pastor's moral failure. He discusses the keys to leading broken churches and organizations you inherited, does a post-mortem on leading a church after a moral failure, and shares how to know when to kill what your predecessor built or when to leave it alone.
