Leadership

The Leadership Challenge
Too often people confuse a strong-willed personality as an effective leader, leadership is not being strong-willed, rather having a strong sense of purpose that is centered upon God. The church of our Lord needs leaders, not petty instigators. There are too many churches that substitute a petty person for a godly person and see no distinction, because the people who put them in power do not know the difference.

 

Characteristics of an effective pastor and church leader:

 

Vision

A vision will have your primary call from Scripture, to hear and obey His Word!

Knowledge

Knowledge is being assured that what Christ did is relevant and impacting, and is a reality that must be accepted and committed to.
Love their Call
Love their Call is Passion, it means there is nothing better you would rather do than…

Energizer

Energizer is the importance of influence, and being attractive with Christ who gets excited and is joyful for Him!

Learning

Learning is to learn and grow from the experience the Lord gives us so we are an example for His work!

Maturity

Maturity is to know that our need is to be in Christ, and not to be to ourselves!

Perseverance

Perseverance is to continue in our state of grace so we live it out in our lives and walk with Christ to the end for our eternal reward!

Courage

Courage is the willingness to take a risk and go beyond ourselves, our experience and knowledge and into what is best for the body of Christ!

Faith

No Fear of Failure is the ability to take a risk and keep the focus and attention on our call and obedience!

Followers

Followers is knowing that you cannot lead where you have not been, unless the leader is a good follower of the Lord they cannot lead others effectively!

Listening


Listening knows to be an effectual leader, you must know how to listen, all its takes is the will to turn it on and let it work.
