Leading a Dangerously Soft-hearted Ministry | Edgar Sandoval, World Vision

Edgar Sandoval's amazing story of hardship, hard work, and surrender is filled with God's continued work in each of us and this world!  As CEO of World Vision, a large, tenured Christian Humanitarian Aid Organization, Edgar discusses the organization's willingness to respond to dangerous situations because of soft hearts, calling it the "right kind of dangerous".  As generations change, Edgar describes focusing on holding the values that started World Vision, as he says, "the fruits are in the roots, and our roots are in the church, we were started by a youth pastor."  From his personal story to pursuing diversity to how leadership sets the tone for stewardship - you won't want to miss this one.
