Theme #2: Personal Leadership

“If you think you’re leading and no one is following you, then you’re only taking a walk.” (Afghan Proverb)

The primary objective of understanding our Personal Leadership is to learn to lead like Jesus. Not only do we need to develop intimacy with Him in our personal spiritual formation, we also need to understand who He has made us to be. Who Jesus has made us to be determines and shapes what He calls us to do. He has first called us to be leaders of Character who reflect His servant leadership. He has also designed our Chemistry in how He has made us uniquely to find our PLACE in life and ministry. He has created us with certain strengths to maximize for the gospel and His kingdom. He teaches us how to be relationally driven and relationally intelligent. Jesus also calls us to Competency as leaders, knowing how to lead, vision, and create healthy leadership cultures. Lastly, Jesus reveals our Calling & Commitment, the unique people and locale to which He has called us to ministry and mission.
