The Come and Go Leader

Submitted by James Higginbotham on September 1, 2009 – 4:13 am2 Comments

My neighborhood recently saw a church come and go within a matter of months. They were utilizing the community elementary school in our neighborhood and then one day, their roadside advertising signs stopped showing up. I looked them up and found out they are moving out of state due to a new “calling”. No more church. No more local meetings for those that were attending.

I know things happen. I know God can use short term circumstances for His long term purpose.

However, if you plan to come and go without leaving a legacy, then you aren’t really leading. Instead, you are using others for your own purposes, then abandoning them.

That isn’t true leadership.
