What is Your Leadership / Ministry Philosophy?

May 28, 2010

Hope you are having a great Friday!

Questions for you – can you articulate your ministry / leadership philosophy?

You may say you don’t have one, but we all do – you just may not be able to put it into words.  As a leader however, you need a well- developed philosophy that helps to guide you in your role as a leader.

Dr. J. Robert Clinton, in the book, The Making of a Leader, makes the following statement:

“Leaders must develop a ministry philosophy that simultaneously honors biblical leadership values, embraces the challenges of the times in which they live, and fits their unique gifts and personal development if they expect to be productive over a whole lifetime.”

So, if you don’t have a statement of your philosophy, take some time and begin developing your philosophy – it will greatly enhance your effectively over the long run.

Have a great weekend!
