This edition of Crosstalk began with Mike discussing the formation of Headwaters Christian Youth, a non-denominational youth ministry headquartered in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. Mike has been the executive director since 1983.
One of the offshoots of Headwaters Christian Youth is W.I.L.D. This stands for Wise Intentional Leadership Development. W.I.L.D. began as a local leadership program designed to train and develop volunteers that were involved with Headwaters Christian Youth.
Eventually W.I.L.D went international and Pastor Henry Mukonda discussed that aspect of this leadership program. He is from Zambia and has worked with Mike for the last 7 years. Henry detailed the beginnings of W.I.L.D., its biblical moorings, training people to hear the voice of the Lord, how people can lead from anywhere and any position, the issue of women in leadership and more.
