🟢 What is the Spirit Empowered Leader Podcast all about?

Join us on an extraordinary adventure as we invite you to explore leadership guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit. God has entrusted each of us with the call to lead and has equipped us through the Holy Spirit. But how do we practically live out that calling? That’s the question we’re asking, and together, we’ll embark on a quest to uncover the answers.

In the story of Abraham, we find a pivotal moment when he responds, “Here I am,” to God’s call to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac. After wrestling with this profound request for three days and climbing a mountain, Abraham once again declares, “Here I am,” just moments before offering Isaac as a sacrifice. It is in this journey, between the call of God and the fulfillment of our purpose, that we find ourselves. A process, a transformational experience, awaits us.

“The Spirit Empowered Leader” is a podcast that delves into the challenges, trials, and lessons of leadership from a Spirit-empowered perspective. We will explore what it truly means to be a Spirit-filled leader in every aspect of life, whether as sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, in ministry, business, sports, medicine, or any sphere where God has called you to make an impact.

Your hosts, Travis Holownia, Executive Director & Visionary Founder of Resurgence Initiatives, and Daunavan Buyer, Associate Director of Resurgence Initiatives, will guide you through the depths of leadership under the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Resurgence Initiatives, a ministry born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in 2008, was given a divine mandate to Reach People, Revive Churches, and Release Leaders. Our vision extends beyond Canada, aiming to see a global resurgence occur all around the world.

We believe that information may change your mind, but revelation has the power to transform your life. That’s why our podcast goes beyond providing mere information; it seeks to create an encounter with the Holy Spirit right where you are, in whatever leadership role you’ve been called to fulfill. At the end of each episode, we will pray for those watching or listening, creating space for the Spirit to speak and move in your life.

If you’re wondering how to grow in your leadership as a teacher, mother, pastor, ministry leader, CEO, athlete, or in any other role, we invite you to join us as we interview various friends about the different aspects of Spirit Empowered Leadership.

Season 2 launched January 2024 with hosts Travis Holownia and Daunavan Buyer, accompanied by incredible guests from around the world. Furthermore, Season 1 launched in June 2023 and the 12 episodes are a must listen/watch.
