LEARNING TO LEAD
Our culture is challenged by a lack of leadership. Capable male leaders are meant to be an integral part of God’s structure for our nation, our communities, our families. Yet many men live distracted lives, failing to give leadership in their spheres of influence, and worse, within their own families.
“Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man, and he will increase in learning.” Proverbs 9:9
Leadership Ministries is committed men coming together to challenge, teach, and encourage each other on a journey to be effective leaders.
Our primary tool is Friday Morning Men's Fellowship, a gathering of men from all walks of life, who have the desire to learn from the greatest leader of all, Jesus Christ. We meet to hear a brief talk on a passage from the Bible. Then we break up into table groups to discuss how to apply the insights to each man’s own journey of faith. The atmosphere is one of trust, with men giving of themselves to listen first, and then respond with questions that challenge the heart and mind to make practical changes in their lives. Thousands of men have benefited.
From an early age, into teen years, and certainly progressing into adulthood, we are forgetting how to have fun. Life is meant to have a joyful, lighthearted, entertaining side. For some reason we spend adolescent and early adult years driving it completely from our minds.
The most successful leaders are often not those who are the most creative or innovative, but those who have the discipline to carry through on initiatives.
How does one know “the right thing” to do in any given situation? Is there always at least one “right thing”? And does doing “right” mean we always look for the good of others, or the common good, or in some cases to our own good?
Our lives should be filled with joyful, generous, systematic giving. It is an act of obedience to God, Who speaks about money more than any other topic.
Real success is not measuring what you amass, but rather counting how you live, and what you leave as a legacy to those who are following behind you.
History books are filled with men who burned out, gave up, failed miserably or missed a critical opportunity because their leadership supply chain wasn’t working.
If you are constantly under stress, it’s costing you more than lost sleep and headaches. Over time, continued and ongoing stress can literally kill you.
In your lifetime you’ll make over 733,618 decisions. But only 20 or so will really matter, and how you plan for them and go through them could change your life.
“Do not be discouraged” is not just a motivational verse in Scripture, it is a command to recognize and deal with discouragement and depression in your life.
The first person you need to be able to lead is yourself. Leadership is not so much about the actions of the leader as it is the character he possesses.
