Christ-like Leadership (It’s all about Christ-likeness)

  As we reflect back on the GProCongress in 2016, we recall that pastoral health is key to church health, societal health and ultimately transformation. It was a running undercurrent or theme to the GProCongress. Why? Because the quality of our influence hinges on being a holistically healthy pastor. During the parallel session on Spiritual Engagement, we hammered this theme hard, digging ever deeper into the importance of what it means to be a Christ-like leader! It’s so pivotal that the movement I’m a part of, highlights it as our second of four core outcomes. Even the Lausanne Movement in […]

Develop These 7 Leadership Skills

“Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.” Proverbs 9:9 Leadership is critical in ministry as it is for any organization.  The success of any ministry will rise and fall on its leadership.  Weak ministries can succeed with strong leadership, but strong ministries cannot succeed with weak leadership.  If we are to achieve success in the ministries that God has called us to, then we must become effective leaders in order to fulfill His purpose through us.

Unashamed Servant-Leadership

One year ago, Unashamed Servant-Leadership was released by Langham Publishing as part of the Global Perspectives Series.  How it came about to be published is another story but one that began at the GProCongress for Pastoral Trainers in 2016.  Prior to that, this was just a research done to fulfill my doctoral study requirements at Tabor Adelaide, Australia.  At the Congress, I met Dr. Riad Kassis, a Langham Partnership Director and scholar who encouraged me to send my manuscript to the extended publishing arm of Langham.  There were no promises that the manuscript would be accepted.  I had sat on […]

How to Handle Criticism in Life & Leadership

If you are new to leadership, you might wonder why you get criticized. The reality is if you are a leader in any capacity, that is the only requirement to get criticized.
