Everything listed under: leadership

  • Understanding our Role in Leadership

    When it comes to a leader’s vision actually being fulfilled, the words “Preparation” and “Implementation” are very important words. Apostle Paul wrote, “When a man goes to war, he must count the cost”. Counting the cost is part of the preparation stage.

  • Delayed Obedience...

    Leaders are prone to be able to hear more clearly what God wants for others much easier than for themselves. In the spirit of this interesting reality, obedience is often delayed as leaders vacillate between the many options that can present themselves. However, delayed obedience is disobedience.

  • Stir Up The Gift

    When the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy, his son in the Lord, his strong admonition was to do one very important thing as it relates to ministry and leadership development: “…remember to stir up the gift of God that is in you by the laying on my hands”.   Obviously, Paul was interested in seeing Timothy become the great leader he was destined to be. I think, like natural father-figures, mentors (and fathers in the faith) have a general understanding of the potential and destiny contained wit...

  • Quitting Is Not An Option

    According to the Prophet Isaiah, every leader is in one of two places: either your river is turning into a desert, or your desert in turning into a river. These days, it seems there is a tremendous amount of stress and pressure on ministers every where we go. Of course, a portion of this reality is a sign that we are near the end of the age.

  • The Changing of the Guard

    Recently, one of the most prolific prophetic voices went home to be with His Savior. Of course, I’m referring to David Wilkerson. When this happens, each generation will experience a transition of leadership: we’ll call it “The Changing of the Guard”.

  • The Emphatic Leader, Part 2

    From Romans 8:31 (American Standard Version), the Apostle Paul prefaced one of the most quoted scriptures in today’s Church with the question “What then shall we say to these things?” The popular scripture I’m referring to is “If God is for us, then who can be against us?” The first question (What then shall we say to these things) can be linked to several issues Paul raised in the previous verses. Issues like: the Holy Spirit helping our infirmities and His activity, which includes interceding ...

  • The Emphatic Leader

    There’s nothing that breaks a leader’s focus quicker than believing there are options involved. Obviously, Jesus’ ministry did not function this way. The Greek language uses very strong language when communicating His words.

  • Because He lives, We Shall Live Also!

    Of the many promises made to us in God’s Word, few are more exhilarating than the title of this week’s blog taken from John 14:19: “Because I live, you shall live also!” Jesus spoke this well before His death upon Calvary’s cross. It was a timeless prophetic word heralded to His disciples and to the billions who have found hope in these eternal words since that day. The word “shall” is defined in Webster’s Dictionary as “obligated, compelled and determined”.

  • Uprooting Untruths and Establishing the Kingdom!

    There is much available these days regarding the prophetic ministry. Libraries are lined with great books giving nearly every possible explanation on the use of Spiritual Gifts, especially prophecy, for Apostle Paul told us “to covet earnestly the best gift” that people might be edified, exhorted and comforted. I have often wondered what name should be attached to other kinds of words (from flesh and the devil) people consistently struggle with.

  • What Causes Expansion in Ministry Part 4

    When attending most church growth or pastors' conferences, much time is spent asking, "How big is your church?" We've already covered the Apostle Paul's charge to the Church at Corinth to be cautious about comparing. Paul continues this similar line of thought in II Corinthians 10: 13 & 14, saying,   12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselv...

  • What Causes Expansion in Ministry Part 3

    What Causes Expansion in Ministry Part 3   The irony of ministry is found within the title of the current leadership series: “What Causes Expansion in Ministry”. As John the Baptist declared it, we are called “to decrease, and He (Christ and His kingdom) must increase”. Do you see the irony of being called to bring increase to Christ’s kingdom, yet we must personally decrease?

  • What Causes Expansion in Ministry Part 2?

    Last week we addressed the need for corporate FAITH, not just the faith of the leadership of the Church. Apostle Paul raised other ingredients that bring expansion to ministry, and among them is the element of NOT COMPARING or NOT MEASURING ourselves among ourselves, as Paul put it. To refresh your memory of II Corinthians 10, I’ve reposted the passage:   12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by...

  • What Causes Expansion in Ministry?

    Our personal libraries are filled with church-growth books, yet many of us here in the Western Church struggle with empty pews and chairs in our worship centers. What’s the secret? Some would answer with the following: charisma in a leader, networking with other churches and ministries to gain resources, knowing the needs and connecting with your community, more prayer meetings, etc.

  • At The Well!

    Most often, we think of the story of the Woman at the Well in the context of salvation. Of course, that is a great application of the story and its message. However, another thought is to consider the application of this well being a continual source of nourishment…not just a onetime event.

  • "Re-discovering Our Destiny in God"

    The title of this week’s leadership blog came as prophetic word to me about two weeks ago. The Lord said, “Two thousand eleven (2011) will be the year of the Body of Christ to re-discover its destiny in God”. Praise the Lord, Saints of God!
  • Holiday Time with the Family

    Unless you've been living in a hole in the ground for a while, you are fully aware of the many challenges of balancing between work and family time. As you might already expect, that, for those of us in the ministry, the challenge multiplies. Obviously, it is necessary to set boundaries and realistic expectations.
