Southern Baptist Convention president Johnny M. Hunt often shares his unique Christian testimony: a shy, rebellious kid whose alcoholic father left a wife and six children to fend for themselves, he did not embrace faith until after he was married. So when Johnny talks about investing in people, earning respect, living intentionally, daring to dream, and being courageous, his words ring especially fresh and true.
Building Your Leadership Résumé is Hunt’s presentation of wisdomfocused lessons like those mentioned above that will simply yet greatly enhance any business or ministry. Each five-to-six page entry guides the reader toward becoming a selfless leader whose impact on others can be immediately rewarding as well as eternally significant.
Johnny M. Hunt is president of the Southern Baptist Convention and senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Georgia. Dr. Hunt holds degrees from Gardner-Webb College and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and is also the author of Building Your Spiritual Resume. He and his wife, Janet, have two children and four grandchildren.
Hunt focuses on several aspects of leadership, including passion, power, the leaders perception of himself, the leaders relationship with others, the leaders support system, and the legacy the leader leaves behind. Hunt makes it very evident that leadership only lasts for a short time and encourages the reader to focus on the end product as well as to invest in others who will continue to see the project through once the initial leaders time has come to an end. As president of the Southern Baptist Convention and senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Georgia, Hunts experience in ministry has given him a significant amount of trial and error that aspiring leaders can learn from.
When a leader has passion, he sells out for the cause. He goes all in. He has a fire in his bones, a zeal that can hardly be contained, knowing that God has called him to do this work, writes Hunt. But most leaders are lost as to how to start. Because of this, Hunt gives an explanation of characteristics and ideas that the startingor boredleader can follow for the advancement of his or her ministry or for a new direction and extra boost of energy. Using personal experience, Hunt captures the reader in various stories that illustrate his points.
Bottom line, Hunts book is effective and down to earth. His writing style is simple and the content is applicable to anyone. This book would be best for readers who see themselves as aspiring leaders, dedicated and drawn to ministry. However, any reader can pick up tips for everyday life, as well as for big picture concepts. Katlyn Smith, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
