The Greatest Leadership Mind in the World

Like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Dr. Dean Radtke may be the only hope left for the modern church as we know it. Yah, yah, I know…our hope is in Christ, but perhaps more than anyone I’ve ever witnessed, Dr. Radtke has harnessed the leadership principles of the Bible, specifically those of Jesus, and developed a usable and repeatable system to train and disciple next generation leaders. In a recent episode of The Lucas Miles Show, I was able to talk in depth with Dr. Radtke, founder of The Ministry Institute, as he shared life lessons derived from his 70 plus years circling the sun, including tales from his time in the US Navy, his favorite former distraction at Grand Central Station, as well as what compelled him to give up millions in retirement stock options for Jesus.

Here is a link to the full exclusive interview with Dr. Dean Radtke:

From Porn to Reborn

 

In 2006, Crissy Outlaw left the porn industry. Now, she helps other women do the same. Crissy speaks out about the harmful effects of pornography. Her story has been featured on platforms, such as, ABC’s Nightline, GQ Magazine, The Huffington Post, CBN, Playboy, and Christianity Today. Recently I had the chance to sit down with Crissy on my new podcast program, The Lucas Miles Show, and discuss the dangers of the porn industry, her journey out of adult entertainment, and how she found Jesus on a film set in LA. (Listen to audio interview here.)

Here are a few things I learned during the interview:

1.)  Stats suggest over 80% of women involved in porn were previously sexually abused.  (In Crissy’s experience helping minister to girls post-porn, she says it’s much higher than that.)

2.)  It’s virtually impossible to leave porn. As we discussed in depth in the interview, Crissy exited porn years ago and is still unable to remove her likeness or image from the internet.  Guarded by bulky and confusing legal agreements, website owners have refused to honor her decision to leave behind her life in adult entertainment and continue to make money off of her to this day.

3.)  Sex Trafficking is defined by involving “coercion” or forcing someone to compromise their own interests.  According to Crissy, coercion is always present in porn and provides a gateway to more insidious forms of sex trafficking.

4.)  There is hope after porn.  I was so impressed by Crissy’s journey back to Jesus, her love that motivates her to help reach other girls like her, and the way in which God’s grace has brought restoration into her life.
