Calling

Articles in this category focus on the integral part that calling plays in a leader’s life and how to achieve our true calling in Jesus Christ.

Today’s Challenge to Visionary Leaders

Harvesting fruit is only possible when the branches abide in the vine; leaders can only bear good fruit when they abide in Jesus (John 15:4). George outlines the characteristics that a small church needs to have in order to flourish after planting. When leaders heed certain New Testament guidelines, churches multiply rapidly, inexpensively and with little or no ongoing help from Western missionaries.

The Hallmark of a Healthy Christian Leader

Make no mistake, this mournful heart condition that He forms in us, of longing for the things of Christ to be seen and established and over all, is indeed blessed: not a selfish cocktail of leadership insecurity and lime-light grabbing tendency; not a bunch of immature responses of the flesh to the people we’re called to love and the world we’re called to as Priests; but a deep work of the Spirit of God in our lives to hate sin, kill sin and lead towards His salvation.

Clarify Your Rally Cry

I’ve been reflecting on the value of being crystal clear about what matters most. It’s an ongoing leadership exercise for me. While most personal resolutions remain short-lived, children’s ministry calls for a higher standard. Churches must never be okay with dropping the ball on this one. The lives of kids, families, and leaders are on the line.

Do You Know Where Your Metron Is?

We're not to "think of ourselves more highly than we ought, because God has given everyone "the measure [metron] of faith," and we're to stay within our own measure. “We have many members ... but all the members do not have the same function ..." (Rom 12:2-4). Christ delegates to us the authority to follow His call within our own metron, but not outside those boundaries.
