How to Find Your Calling and How To Write A Book in 2 Short Interviews!

James Preston Reply 7:16 AM
This last week I've had the privilege of spending time with 70 odd pastors and leaders from around the world who came together for a conference in celebration of Rob Rufus' 60th birthday, which was on Sunday 5 October.

With leaders from The Netherlands, USA, New Zealand, Australia, Kazakhstan, India, Philippines, South Africa and of course Hong Kong, it was a delightful melting pot of different leaders each doing church and ministry in their own unique way.

Despite the tight conference schedule I just had to get in an interview or two!

"How To Write A Book" with Chad Mansbridge (Adelaide, Australia)
Having been greatly blessed by the book "He Qualifies You" by Adelaide's Chad Mansbridge, I thought I would chat to him about how he came to writing that short but dynamic book.

I chatted to him first, in my hotel room only 2 rooms away from the conference venue. What he had to say was practical and inspiring, especially if you're thinking about writing a book....

"How To Find Your Calling" with Ryan Rufus (Hong Kong)
Having interviewed Ryan Rufus, Rob's 2nd son and world-renowned author and preacher, over Skype back in 2011, I thought it would be great to get an interview with him in person.

Amidst him running around getting photos with all his guests before everyone departed their separate ways, I made sure I grabbed him (I did these interviews on literally the last day of the leader's conference). I asked him about something that has been stirring on his heart of late, which evidently is "finding your calling and operating it in". What he had to say was profound, check it out...

It was a wonderful time together with these incredible leaders, and I wish I could've interviewed all of them. Unfortunately I only had time to grab Ryan and Chad. But still had profound material.

It's been a while since my Leadership Podcast on my Sonic Substance site was updated, last time was in December last year with Kris Vallotton and Danny Silk!

I am looking at expanding my YouTube/video material, and would really appreciate your feedback on these short interviews. So leave a comment in the comments section, or give me a shout out on Twitter.

And of course, I would sincerely appreciate it if you could share these videos on your Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Emails. You'd really be helping me out.

Until next time!
