Introduction to the Leadership Themes from the Gospels

We may need to rediscover what Christ calls us to when we lead and manage His Church.

 

The Call to be Anew

Is your church dedication to Christ's Sovereignty and Lordship?

The Call to Serve

Are you in leadership to serve or be served?

The Call to Drop to our Knees

Is your church's direction from Christ our Lord or from what is happening now?

Statistics on Pastors:

Research on the Happenings in Pastors' Personal and Church Lives.

So, what is going on with today's servants of the Church?

Since first studying pastors in the late 80's, we are seeing significant shifts in the last 20 years on how pastors view their calling and how churches treat them.

If pastors were given a 'do over,' would they choose another career other than full-time ministry? 78%, said No!

Biblical Stewardship
Stewardship Part II Are you giving what's right, or what's left? In my experiences and observations, I have observed, with sadness, that most people in evangelical circles do not see stewardship as important. A common response to the subject of stewardship is that all we need to have is a good heart, or be sincere in our faith. Our money, and how we manage life is irrelevant. But, is this true? Is God only concerned with our heart? If so, what does that mean? Well, when you read the Bible, you can see that it has a totally different definition of stewardship than what is popular in the church today! (1/15/2008)
