Leading a church as a young pastor is extremely difficult. Certain steps and principles early on can dramatically help bring health to the life of a new church or ministry.
Session 1: Foundations of Ministry Leadership
Conviction, Character, Passion, Credibility, and Stewardship
This session walks through these 5 foundations that make ministry leadership possible. We will talk through the strengths and weaknesses of each one and evaluate ourselves on where we currently are and how we can grow.
Bottom Line: Leadership is making outcomes happen that align and protect the mission.
Session 2: Casting Vision and Creating Ownership
God loves us too much to let us think for very long that we can do it alone. Power exponentially grows in a united group of people working to the same end. But unity can’t exist at the deepest level without vision. Someone has to cast the vision. It’s much more than just inspiration. We spend time learning how to cast vision better.
Bottom Line: Health moving forward requires a strong casting of vision.
Session 3: Communication Dynamics – Clarity, Authenticity, Urgency
It’s shocking to see how often people get up in front of people and wing it. It’s terrible to see. The ability to hold a group of people’s attention for a certain amount of time and communicate important information isn’t easy. More than ever, we need people in ministry who can articulate with passion the message we have.
Bottom Line: Don’t speak into the microphone until you have Clarity, Authenticity, and Urgency.
Session 4: Creating and Launching Leaders
It’s not hard to build a crowd. Well actually it sort of is, but the point is you want more than a crowd. You want to see people go from unengaged to stepping out in leadership. That’s the game-changer. Building and establishing leaders is not just delegating tasks, it’s much more.
Bottom Line: The gauge of health is leadership development.
Session 5: Feedback is the breakfast of Champions
You should have a plan to accomplish some things. That’s good. But do you have a plan to get better while you are accomplishing those things. Don’t wake up in 10 years and realize that you have been doing a lot but you haven’t actually gotten any better.
Bottom Line: Feedback is the magic pill that makes you get better.
Session 6: Learning to Love Metrics
Are we doing better than we were last year? That’s a surprisingly difficult question to answer for a lot of people. You can’t just be going off of attendance and giving. That’s terrible. Spend some time setting a direction, figure out how to know when you get there, and keep up with the data.
Bottom Line: Data is an extremely valuable treasure that you aren’t utilizing.
