The Three Horizons

The effective leader will focus on three time horizons simultaneously: 1. Cultivating current responsibilities, extending and defending the core existing ministries. 2. Tending and nurturing emerging ideas, strategies, and processes. 3. Planting seeds for tomorrow. This pattern encompasses the mature, emergent, and embryonic phases of an organization’s life cycle. The leader is responsible to see that they are all addressed effectively.

The Essence of the Christian Life – Video

Jesus has given Himself to you, and He’s called you to know Him. In a manner of speaking, this is all He’s called you to do: to look at Him, to hear Him, to touch Him, to know Him. Everything else – every part of the Christian life and holiness and compassion for the world and vision and ministry work – everything else comes out of this. Everything else comes from Him. This is the core reality of the Christian life and of Christian ministry. And this is the meaning of staff development in a Christian organization.

A Letter from an Emerging Leader

Discipleship of the emerging leader is as crucial as a lion nurturing his offspring or a father his child, but it goes deeper than a father to child relationship. It is much broader than teaching skills or fine-tuning character. Malcolm has written a letter that goes straight to the heart of discipleship and what emerging leaders need from those more experienced leaders.
