Jeremy Stefano (Attributes 16-20) | The Heart of a Discerning Leader, Episode 10

Host: Steve Macchia, Guest: Jeremy Stefano

Everyone knows whether they are living a spacious or a cluttered life. The question is, are we tapping into our longings that those quiet hours feed in our soul” – Steve Macchia

A discerning leader builds their life upon the teachings of Jesus. For the past two decades, Leadership Transformations has been coming alongside leaders and learners who are engaged in important and meaningful service in the body of Christ. Steve Macchia and Jeremy Stefano return to the podcast to share the final five attributes of the heart of a discerning leader. In this episode, you will hear how a spiritually mature leader values silence, solitude, and space for God; willingly voices repentance, confession, and forgiveness, regularly reorders his/her affections, is decisive when necessary, discerning when essential and has strength of character and competency (especially during hard times).

Join the conversation about spiritual discernment as a way of life at and consider participation in our online and in-person program offerings. Additional LTI spiritual formation resources can be found at and and
