Leadership

God will Defend

when the criticism is unjust, when it comes from someone who doesn't want reconciliation, when it's laced with rumors and lies and gossip, that's when God takes over. He will defend against the rumors and gossip and haters. He will expose the hearts of those involved. And He will make us better leaders in the process.

Guided by Principle

You could have a jerkface perfectly executing good things in accordance with inflexible processes. Or you can have a man (or woman) of excellence creating great things, but they might fail now and again. The difference isn't in avoiding failure. Failure is inevitable as death and taxes. It's what you do after you fail that matters.

The Dream Team Leader

On Tuesday, I shared a list of qualities to look for in people when assembling your dream team. I made the point that you need to find a team that reflects your values and vision, but also one that is willing to challenge what you think and bring new ideas to the table to help your dream grow. We all need a team to help push our dream [...]

Ministry Beyond Myself

Last night, I had a pretty surreal moment in ministry. Ignite at Monmouth College was hosting our once a month All Campus Worship night. It's a pretty big event for us. Our students send out emails to the other Christian groups on campus. One of our leaders will prepare a short devotion. My buddy, who has been a worship leader for the [...]

Becoming

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been wrestling with this idea of who I am becoming. It’s something I’ve spoken about, something I challenged my leaders with and, since the Ignite Leadership Retreat, something I can’t get out of my head. You see, I find it very easy to focus on what I’m doing for God. Messages [...]

Creating Vision

This past week, I met with a young man who is in the planning stages of launching a youth/young adult group in his church. It was a great time to connect with him, share ideas and give advice I’ve learned over the last eight years working with this age group. During the course of our conversation, I asked him a pretty standard [...]
