Introduction to the Leadership Themes from the Gospels

We may need to rediscover what Christ calls us to when we lead and manage His Church.

 

The Call to be Anew

Is your church dedication to Christ's Sovereignty and Lordship?

The Call to Serve

Are you in leadership to serve or be served?

The Call to Drop to our Knees

Is your church's direction from Christ our Lord or from what is happening now?

Research Highlights

 

Statistics on Pastors:

Research on the Happenings in Pastors' Personal and Church Lives.

So, what is going on with today's servants of the Church?

Since first studying pastors in the late 80's, we are seeing significant shifts in the last 20 years on how pastors view their calling and how churches treat them.

If pastors were given a 'do over,' would they choose another career other than full-time ministry? 78%, said No!

How to Lead Inductive Bible Studies
How to incorporate an "Inductive" type of study into your home or church Bible study If you lead a Bible Study, you are called to teach the Bible, not pool ignorance! We are to lead our learners to the wonders and principles of the passage at hand. You can learn to do this and do it well! You can show the precepts, ideas, and truths of our Lord. You can be the mentor and disciple maker that our Lord has called. You are to lift up the cross, the Person of Christ, and what He has done. You are also to show others what you have learned and still be growing yourself, to show the wonder and truth of a life that affects all of our being. (3/6/2008)
