008: A Conversation with my Aussie Hero Dave Tolman [podcast]

There are few men I respect more than Dave Tolman.

He is one of the giants who served as a sage and guide at the most recent Become Good Soil Intensive.  I had a rare chance to turn on the microphone and record a conversation with him that I think you’ll enjoy.  Dave is a Kingdom strategist.

It’s been said that a good king cares far more about your heart than he does your gifting.  And it has also been said,

“The activity of love is to make space for another person to be totally themselves.”

Dave is that kind of leader and that kind of king.  He has that kind of impact on the men under his leadership.

He serves in many leadership capacities, from serving as a key Director of a denomination of churches throughout Australia to leading a big team over one of the most vibrant conference facilities in Sydney.  His passion is ministry to families, and he lives out that message personally with his ridiculous holidays in the Aussie bush with the family in a pop-up trailer for six weeks at a time.  In this conversation, I had a chance to lean into his many years of wisdom in the category of mentoring—and much more.  Enjoy.
