FREE Proactive Leadership Materials

Karl is passionate about leadership. At age 40, he was the youngest to be selected by Children's Ministry Magazine as one of the Top 20 Leaders in Children's Ministry over the past 20 years.  He started leading and impacting in kids ministry at the age of 20! (In reality, he started at 10!)

He is the creator of the Kidology Online Training Leadership Labs and has spoken on Leadership at national conferences, as well as written on "proactive leadership" for Children's Ministry Magazine's Professional Edition.

Last year, Karl "spoke" at the CM Telesummit on Proactive Leadership.  He'd like to give you FREE the MP3 from this exclusive training experience, not available anywhere else.  Plus, you'll receive some great BONUS resources!

This hour-long session has the potential to transform your leadership from being one of REACTING to the things you are being constantly hit with, to one that is PROACTIVE and leaning into the things you need to be doing - not only with your ministry, but in your personal life too.

These are things that Karl has learned from over 20 years in ministry - and some of these lessons he has learned the hard (and painful) way. They are lessons so valuable that he doesn't feel right selling the sessions.  He wants you to share it freely to any leader who is willing to take the time to LISTEN, take notes with the included outline, and allow God to use this powerful presentation to challenge and equip you to be a proactive leader.

HERE is what you are going to get:

  • A 54-minute (26MB) MP3 file
    Proactive Leadership: "Grabbing the Remote and Taking Control of your Personal and Professional Life"
  • A PDF outline to use while listing
