What does it look like for leaders to embody power in the same way Jesus does? We continue our series on Power in the Church by talking with Rich Villodas, pastor of New Life Fellowship in Queens.
We talk with Rich about what it looks like to embody cruciform power in the way of Jesus, and why it’s necessary for leaders to cultivate a contemplative life. Rich describes his own experimentation in the contemplative way in very practical, helpful, down-to-earth terms, sharing the internal struggles and external pressures, as well as the process that led to breakthrough for him.
You can follow Rich on Twitter, but he’s on sabbatical for a few months this summer.
