Introduction to the Leadership Themes from the Gospels

We may need to rediscover what Christ calls us to when we lead and manage His Church.

 

The Call to be Anew

Is your church dedication to Christ's Sovereignty and Lordship?

The Call to Serve

Are you in leadership to serve or be served?

The Call to Drop to our Knees

Is your church's direction from Christ our Lord or from what is happening now?

Statistics on Pastors:

Research on the Happenings in Pastors' Personal and Church Lives.

So, what is going on with today's servants of the Church?

Since first studying pastors in the late 80's, we are seeing significant shifts in the last 20 years on how pastors view their calling and how churches treat them.

If pastors were given a 'do over,' would they choose another career other than full-time ministry? 78%, said No!

What is Leadership?
A basic description of leadership is the duty and call of the person who is in charge to take charge with courage and character, and to risk leading his/her people where they need to go and how they need to be led. It is a position that seeks vision, opportunities, and needs and then motivates others to get it done through the resources, talents, and time they can contribute. (4/2/2010)
