Leadership Essentials: Leading By Grace
God’s Word teaches us that difficulties will arise in our leadership. Paul is the most memorable example, as he struggled with imprisonment, beatings, shipwrecks, and even near-death to take the gospel to other parts of the world.
Leadership Essentials: Leading For Now
Have you ever started a new team or a new project, only to have it fizzle out after a while? The excitement that was once there is no longer there for you or your team?
Leadership Essentials: Giving Your All
Leadership can be exilerating at times. Seeing a team come together, work hard, and make something come out of nothing. Those are the best of times. At other times, things can be difficult and never seem to go your way. How you handle these extremes will impact how well you lead.
Leadership Essentials: The Unglamorous Leader
Some think being a leader is a glamorous thing. Lots of fame, fortune, and access to “hidden secrets”. The reality of leadership is much different and lacks the excitement that many seek. That doesn’t mean that leadership is not rewarding or lacks fulfillment – it just means that our expectations need to change.
Leadership Essentials: Forward Progress

Leadership Essentials: Who We Really Serve
As leaders, we often think we know who we serve. If you lead volunteers at a church, you serve God, your local church, and your community.

This is a God-given pattern that encourages a dependence upon one another through relationships with our volunteers and leaders in the church. These relationships are for the purpose of building and maintaining unity within the local church.
