We need more leadership like Wiley Drake. No, I’m not a fan of a lot of his positions, but I love his servant heart and he is a good example of someone who is much different than me, but whom I would give my right arm to partner with, because of his love for Christ and people.
I would STRONGLY encourage you to read this post about Wiley, and then to watch this video interview that John Stickley and I did with Wiley at the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting this past summer.
What do you think? Are you ready to sleep with homeless people? I’ll be honest, when I first read the article I was all set to bash some of our leaders because they wouldn’t do that. Then it hit me that I probably wouldn’t be willing to do it either.
God give us more leaders like Wiley.
