It’s Friday, so it’s time for another Leadership Roundup. Whether you’re a worship leader, a pastor, a worship team member, or in any kind of ministry, you’re in leadership. So when you have some free time this weekend, here are some good leadership posts to read.
Thom Rainer: A leader must rise and be willing to lead the church toward radical transformation regardless of the personal costs to him. That leader is typically a new pastor in the church, but it does not have to be.
Steve Keating: Your success really begins with an understanding of the difference between “I Can’t” and “I Won’t.” There are really very few things you actually “can’t” do. Most of the things you don’t do are because you simply won’t.
Ed Underwood: I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of the charade. Cuss me out, slap me, or scream at the top of your lungs. But please, please, please, tell me what you really mean!
Ryan Loche: Remember that if you’re not challenging your congregation, your team, and yourself you’ll lose ground. Push forward and be amazed at what God does.
Jeff Bigelow: Another principle is this: identify with the people you are leading. Jesus told them not to take extra clothes. The tunic was a standard garment in that day, and only the wealthy would wear two tunics. Jesus wanted the apostles to identify with common people.
Rick Calcutt: That tragic incident clearly left its mark on me as a young church leader. I should have protected him and from that point on I have attempted to do so. This short encounter spoke volumes to me. Here are some of the principles I learned and adopted since.
