April 11: How Actively Listening Will Lead Others to Follow


Speaker: Adam Sidler


The ultimate reversal: Telling doesn’t cause others to follow; listening does. A leader who gains respect and trust from others actively listens to their needs, ideas and frustrations. Learn how to actively listen to others so you can make a positive impact in their lives and become a better leader. 

Adam Sidler is first and foremost following Jesus, constantly being changed by Him, and committed to His mission. He and his wife have two children. Adam has served as a pastor at various churches in Indiana and Minnesota for the past 20 years. Most recently, before coming to Wooddale, Adam was the senior pastor at a fellow Converge church in the Twin Cities. He earned a master’s degree from Grace Theological Seminary and a doctorate in Congregation and Family Care from Bethel University. Adam serves on the board of directors for The Respite, a place of hope and healing for pastors and their families, and also is the executive team leader for From Scattered to Gathered, a Converge ministry focused on revealing the gospel to least-reached immigrant populations in the Twin Cities. Adam is passionate about seeing the church live out its mission of being empowered by the Holy Spirit as it steps forth to be God’s witness to the world (Acts 1:8).
