About This Show
Come and CongreGate with Mark, Shawn, and Micah as they talk about culture, politics, sports, world events, and church from a biblical worldview. In ancient times, the community elders sat in the city gate to talk politics and culture, conduct business, pass judgment, and share ideas about life. Trading in the city gate for a few microphones and an endless source of inspiration and banter (aka "the internet"), a pastor and college professor, a former naval officer, and a rotary club president team up to share their (usually) common-sense thoughts on what is going on in the world and the church. We're not experts, and we're not trying to sell you anything. Some people won't agree with us; some people will. Regardless, join J. Mark Fox, Shawn Curtis, and Micah Fox for weekly episodes of CongreGate!

Effective Leadership at Work & Home - CP013
3 days ago
More and more, young men are dropping out of the labor force and withdrawing from leadership at work and in their homes. Today we talk about working hard in our jobs and in our homes to model a strong work ethic and effective leadership to our children. The work culture has shifted so that most of us can't take our children to work to learn alongside us. It's a challenge for dads to engage in training & discipling the children when they spend a large portion of the day away from the home. This means we have to work harder around the house to create these learning opportunities for our children. We not only talk about encouraging our children to work hard physically, but also how to disciple and train them spiritually. As Christian men, we need to be able to delegate some of the training to our wives and other teachers, without becoming passive. It's challenging to find a balance between "ruling with an iron fist" and abdicating our responsibilities as fathers. We also talk about how important wives roles are in encouraging husbands to lead well.
