So true Seth…changing a culture is never easy. Not only will it test your people but it will test your conviction as a leader. Are you willing to stay the course and are you willing to lose your followers while you rebuild things a new way? Many leaders fold under that pressure. Peace.
- Why now?
- What do you stand for?
- Where are you taking us?
- How are we going to get there?
No insights, but know that I’m praying peace over you through all the transition.
Seth, change can be driven from the past or your future. The past serves only that, past, gone but not forgotten. The future serves God and we need to follow him. Being Christ like is our model. My family and I will be praying for you and your direction. Peace <><
Praying right now.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.

It’s been an adventure these last 10 years since I was introduced to AIM. I’ve had the privileged to know the organization, you, your family and the heart of the people who work tirelessly for the Kingdom. I trust you Seth! Praying much!
I’ll be praying for you Seth. I don’t really have a clue what you are talking about, but that doesn’t really matter. What I do know is that you have pushed through many challanges in the past, and I’m sure you will do the same in this one. I also know that even if you don’t get it perfect at every step, you will not give up until you have peace that you are where God wants you to be.
Right behind every challange is a breakthrough. I can’t wait to see what’s on the other end of this one.
Blessings for the journey.
We trust you Seth. And while we do have questions, that trust is allowing us a lot of peace during this turnover. You’re an amazing leader. I know that because of our friendships with your children and our experience with you while in Nicaragua and after we arrived back in Alabama. I’m learning to be a follower as I become a leader. Thank you for the way you pour yourself out to us by being accessible, showing us grace, and allowing freedom.
To those of you who’ve been praying for us – thank you. We had a good meeting. God gave us grace and a I think a lot of people gave grace as well.
I sure appreciate the encouragement and prayers.
Seth, your courage will take things to new levels of multiplication. And people’s respect for you will grow, but the fame of His Name in this generation will be the ultimate winner.
Praying for you this morning, friend…
Praying hard for you guys! I may not be on staff, but I’m on your prayer team. Got you covered there. You guys helped us get to Mexico and I can never repay you for that, but I can repray you. Peace to you hermano and much grace in the days ahead.
