Leaders Serving Leaders

Meet Dr. Owens

We've been blessed to receive the benefits of Thom's teaching and mentoring. The material in the SWORD of Leadership and the Leadership Exceleration program have benefited me personally and more importantly benefitted my team at Youth Challenge [of Hampton Roads]. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to improve as a leader.

We all have God-given dreams, but when our purpose leads us into the marketplace, how do we ensure that our business leadership aligns with God’s wisdom and instruction on the day to day? The answer lies within the foundational principles God has already given us in His Word. That’s why as a Christian business owner, engaging with Thom Owens and working through Wielding the SWORD of Leadership, the introductory piece of his Paladin Approach Leader Development System, was invaluable to me. By working through each module, I was able to clearly evaluate my business goals against sound Biblical teaching so that my ministry, Transforming Love Ministries, is built on a firm foundation that truly advances the cause of Christ in the marketplace.
