Your View of the Father Impacts you as a Leader with Ryan Adams | Season: 2 Episode: 12

We are so honored to welcome Ryan Adams, to this weeks episode of the Spirit Empowered Leader Podcast! Travis Holownia (co-host) and Daunavan Buyer (co-host) ask Ryan his Spirit Empowered Leadership journey. Ryan talks about how not knowing his father impacted his life, purpose and relationship with God. There were some key moments where he experience and encountering the love of the Father(God). Those moments have been key in forming him to be an influencer of influencers in business and finance. Be sure to listen!

Ryan obtained his Science degree from the U of A in 2006 and followed this on with his Chartered Accountant designation shortly thereafter. His time at PricewaterhouseCoopers provided a strong foundation to step into private industry and build his experience. Ryan’s passion to build companies and work with entrepreneurs has been the primary driver for his career’s trajectory. His experience has spanned many industries – resulting in the creation of the private services firm Refine Financial Inc. Through Refine, Ryan focused on providing business owners the solutions they need to build their business, financing, management, mergers and acquisitions in private and public markets, and navigate the challenges that come from growth or downturns. Ryan currently works with business owners through Refine, acts as an Angel Capital investor in unique opportunities and participates in business acquisitions with dedicated investment partners. Ryan also volunteers for various charities, focused on helping those in need, ranging from Board or Advisory Committee Member to operational assistance. He has been a big part of praying and cheering on Resurgence Initiatives (the ministry behind this podcast!).

🟢 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.

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.
