This weekend was a great experience for the leadership team I serve with from The Community Fellowship. We had a retreat led by my friend Jon Morris who is the Executive Director of STEP, Inc (Support to Eliminate Poverty) that serves our region. Lots of great things came out of our retreat and time together, but the two biggest pieces had to with us getting to understand each other better and the other was understanding our personality and leadership style. It was revealing on many levels.
I had been praying for our leaders and our time together for some time. One of the pieces that God let come across my plate was a blog post from Scott Williams. You can read the post HERE. Several things Scott shared helped me understand the role I have at church and even through The Community Dream Center. These truths also have given me some insight in how to bring the best out in the people I serve with. Let me share some notes from the blog post:
I want to be a next level leader. How about you? The time I have to spend with others is valuable because I can either make people better or take away from their value. Jesus added value to everyone he came in contact with. He was the supreme next level leader in all 5 of those areas. What will you and I do next to help someone else be a better person, a faithful follower of Jesus and a leader that makes a difference?
