What if, instead of keeping up with change, you could get ahead of it? Our mission as Christians was the same yesterday as it is today and will be tomorrow. The world, however, is changing faster than ever before, and keeping up feels impossible. The realities of human life—from how we develop relationships to how we use technology to have impact—therefore change rapidly too. It's critical that Christian leaders take this into consideration as they plan for their organizations' future. Strategists and innovation experts Nicholas Skytland and Alicia Llewellyn join us in the 7 am hour to give us a heads up on how to shape the future, be visionary, and grow our businesses and ministries.
