Seminar #3 in the Resilience! series for building strength into Christian leaders.
All leadership moments are emotional! Just ask those you lead. Emotions affect our lives as Christian leaders and followers each day — but how often do we recognize them? How should we live with those raw feelings of loneliness, anger, fear or sorrow when we are discipling people or teaching the Bible regularly? And how should the emotion of joy play affect us when we are leading? What role does love have in our leading and what emotions should we lead with?
In this online seminar will consider Paul’s emotions in order to better understand how God wants us to live as emotional beings, especially in the context of ministry and relationships.
One of the key issues for Christian leaders globally is low self-awareness of their own emotional life. Rarely is time spent, with others, reflecting on how their inner feelings affect their leadership or what events, people or words trigger unruly emotions. And they may not realize how the people they lead are experiencing the leader’s emotions.
This is #3 in a series on building holistic resilience in Christian leader’s lives.
