LEADERSHIP MARKED BY LOVE, TRUST & COURAGE
BY JAKE LOCKER
Jake is a former American football quarterback. He played college football at the University of Washington, and was drafted by the Tennessee Titans. He is the co-owner of The Locker Room in Ferndale, WA with Michael Koenen, a fellow Ferndale grad and former punter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
He will be speaking about how leadership is necessary and we are all called to it. There are many great examples of effective leadership throughout history. The leaders he respects and loves learning from most are those that knew the purpose they were leading others towards. Their appeal was found in their unwavering commitment to the hope and joy of those around them.
