iDisciple Podcast: Leading Without Authority



Clay Scroggins joins the iDisciple Podcast to share stories from his early days in ministry working under great leaders such as Andy Stanley and Louie Giglio, as well some of the leadership insight from his brand new book, How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge: Leveraging Influence When You Lack Authority.

 Clay Scroggins is the lead pastor of one of the largest congregations in America, North Point Community Church.

Over the years, Clay has worked his way through many organizational levels at North Point Ministries, from facilities manager to high school volunteer, and knows all too well the frustrations of authority deprivation. His new book takes a look at some of the challenges you might face when you want to lead but aren’t in charge, and offers wisdom and tips to improve your walk as a leader.

We pray that this discussion will challenge you to lead well, no matter what position you find yourself in!
