On this cool and rainy morning here in southwest Michigan, I was thinking about want it means to be a leader in ministry.
Two authors I enjoy have summed it up fairly well.
The four characteristics are:
1. Brokenness – a conscious, core awareness that you need God in all things.
2. Uncommon Communion – a deep heart connection with God.
3. Servanthood as An Identity – when you embrace servant leadership not as a strategy, but as an identity.
4. Radical Immediate Obedience – Obedience acknowledges the supremacy of God over all things including the affairs of your life and the work/mission.
First and foremost – servants of the Lord. Secondly, servants of those they lead.
Characterized by humility, dependence, and team-playing.
Called by God into leadership.
We have four major responsibilities for those we lead:
Leaders are moving towards a specific destination.
Leaders are creating and sustaining an agreed-upon vision.
Hope you have a blessed day today as you serve our Lord!
