Bob FranquizLeadership

index Dear Pastor, I just got back into town on Monday evening after taking my family to Disney. What can I say? It was Star Wars Weekend and I am a certified Sci-Fi nerd :) One of the things that blows me away every time I go to Disney World is the quality of the Disney Cast members (their term for “staff”). I have a few friends who work at Disney World and all of them tell me about the opportunities Disney gives cast members to further their leadership and career within the organization.
