Controversies are often the things you want to leave in the past. That’s why this conversation with Philip Ryken is so unique. He served as senior pastor of the historic Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia for 10 years before joining Wheaton College as its president in 2010. As a high-profile leader for the past 20+ years, he has faced many controversies.
Philip Ryken joins NAE President Leith Anderson in Today’s Conversation to share lessons learned and offer advice from his experience. In this podcast, you’ll hear:
- How past controversies can put you in a stronger position for the next one;
- What guidance Dr. Ryken finds in Scripture for dealing with controversies;
- When and how to talk with the media; and
- How to stay on mission when controversies seem to take over.
