Leading For Growth

Submitted by James Higginbotham on May 11, 2010 – 4:14 amNo Comment

Leaders want growth. They want to see their team grow and their impact grow. That is a great goal and one that every leader should have. However, it isn’t the only kind of growth leaders should be pursuing.

Leaders should enable their team to grow in their relationship with God.

Leaders should encourage their team to stretch their faith by doing the impossible.

Leaders should demonstrate daily obedience of God’s Word.

It is too easy for leaders to get caught in the day-to-day tasks, milestones, and management. Many of us are type A personalities, so we are often driven by plans, metrics, and results. Leadership in the church requires more than planning and achieving. It requires a dedication to building personal relationships and helping those around us growth in their personal walk. No plans or metrics can make this happen.
