Making A Difference
I am so proud today of the work of one of the guys on our team.
Kent is a quiet, deep hearted guy who serves with excellence behinds the scenes. He joined our staff a little over a year ago and creates our service media clips.
He's totally committed to eternal reward vs. earthly gain. He would quit his dayjob to do ministry full-time if he could- and he's a pro. We haven't even scratched the service of how we can best position him to use his art to change hearts BUT he's out there doing it and I'm so proud of him. He worked on a pro-bono clip for a recent Habitat for Humanity fundraiser and the goal to raise was 55,000 and the current total is over 100K. (photo: Kent and his girlfriend Holly)
As a manager, he's a challenge because I cannot keep up with his potential. Which is a good problem to have, but I can't help but feel like I'm somehow holding him back. I've learned how to manage under achievers... but having an over achiever is a totally different ball game. Advice anyone?
