Michael Catt, Senior Pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia for over 32 years, is our guest speaker for today's episode.

We cover many topics in this episode but they all tie into the primary topic of leading through personal trials.




Michael Catt talks about his trial with prostate cancer, the lessons he's learned, his decision to pass the baton and the way he's doing it.

He also shared about the necessity of humility and prayer in leadership.
