Absolutely thrilled to bring my buddy Chad Johnson on the podcast today! We're talking about his new book 1,000 Risks, which chronicles his crazy journey of accepting the challenge to take one thousand risks to impact people for Jesus.
About the Book: Could God change the world through seemingly average, ordinary people like you and me?
One Thousand Risks is proof that Jesus can set you up to discover adventure in abundance.
With an all-out-fight against comfort, fear, and living half-heartedly present, One Thousand Risks will help you know how to experience a super-powered life of spiritual significance.
Your problem is fear--mostly the fear of man, fear of failure, and fear of rejection.
In response to a dare, I began deliberately and consistently fighting fear--one tiny risk at a time, right where I was--which translated into this awkward, awesome life with Jesus.
Have you ever sensed that you were created for something grand? Something way bigger than you could pull off on your own?
You were designed to carry more power than any instrument on the planet.
What if you left the unremarkable old for life in the messy, extravagant new?
Take a risk; your Father is king of the universe.
About the Author: An icon of independent music amongst those in the know--Chad Johnson was the director of A&R at what was one of the biggest independent record labels in the world. From DIY darlings to punk rock royalty, Chad seemed to fit right in at Tooth & Nail Records. After all, he'd paid his dues with his own little (failed) label, and every hardworking band knew his story.
Chad's true calling came at the peak of music industry success--an unexpected, undeserved twelve-year career generously affixing his name to an album or two. With his wife's nervous blessing, he abruptly left the conventional music world, one part impassioned and three parts foolish.
Cashing out his 401(k), gold plaques and the record collection, Chad began living an adventure that has led him, reluctantly, to every continent on the planet with Come&Live!.
