How to Be Effective by Serving Others Wholeheartedly

Episode 174 - Bob Lidfors

When thinking about leadership from the world’s perspective, you might define it as taking charge, having power, and directing others. Our guest today, Bob Lidfors, clearly shows the biblical way to lead by serving. As a missionary in Germany, Uganda, and India, he partners with local believers to support them and train new leaders.

Throughout our talk, Bob shares about habits that lead him in deeper relationship with Christ. For example, he discusses the importance of starting the day in worship and how it shifts his focus toward God. As he speaks about his ministry and life, one can easily see his heart to serve and love God and others well.
