Dick Foth

Why Writers and Pastors Need Good Friends

Dick has been a missionary, a pastor, a college president, a coach, and a writer, but one theme permeates his entire life—friendship. Dick lives it and teaches it. We were created for relationships. We lead by it, write by it and live by it.

Show Notes:06. Dick Foth — Friendship: Why Writers and Pastors Need Good Friends

Dick’s book When The Giant Lays Down, is a must read on leadership and pastoral ministry. Dick explains how leadership relies on relationships. But that topic is much bigger than just leadership. Our lives depend on relationships as well as our writing. To live well and to write well we need deep, life-giving friendship.

Dick shares about coming to this realization and how friendships have impacted his life and work. It’s no coincidence that all three of Dick’s books have been co-authored, one with author and pastor Mark Batterson.
