So, you want to make a big marketplace impact for the kingdom? You've only got one option—an option rarely discussed.

We are inundated with books, blogs, magazines, conferences, podcasts and more on how to be a worldly leader. What is a worldly leader? He or she is one who maximizes their natural inborn gifts, talents and abilities.

Yet far too many believers in business stop here. They fail to reach into their unfair advantage to unleash their supernatural leadership potential.
