The first book I read of Maxwell was The 21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership. That book greatly enhanced my life and my leadership thoughts. Recently, I came up […]

LEADERSHIP THOUGHTS

The Pastor’s Quill LEADERSHIP THOUGHTS By Pastor Tim Hodge Nov 12, 2017   Dr. John Maxwell has been the leadership guru of the 1990’s and into the 2000’s. I quote him often. One of my most used quotes is: “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” That’s a heavy statement. I want to share some of […]
