PODCAST | Lessons Learned Leading A New Church Through Crisis With Dave Dummitt
By: Vanderbloemen January 28, 2021
In today’s conversation, our Founder and CEO, William Vanderbloemen talks with Dave Dummitt, Senior Pastor at Willow Creek Community Church, shares about his experience beginning his time of leadership right as COVID-19, and so many other difficult and polarizing events, hit our world.
We helped place Dave at Willow in 2020 and wanted to catch up with him for a candid conversation about leading through this challenging time. Dave shared lessons learned from becoming a new leader, such as how to trust and connect with his staff and congregation, how to downsize compassionately, and balancing the need to make changes early on in leadership while building trust and focusing on forming new relationships.
His experience resonates with anyone stepping into a new role during a turbulent time and encourages leaders who are walking with God to walk with hope.
