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?

Research Highlights

 

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!

Discipleship

Are we Slaves for Jesus?
Are you devoted to Christ or a slave to your misguided will and to the manipulation of others? Did you know that as growing and mature Christians, we have to realize that we belong exclusively to Christ? If you are a leader or pastor in a church, this is even more essential! He purchased us out of sin and doom into His love, care, and grace. He took us from sin and gave us a reason for being. Thus, at some point in our spiritual development, we have to comprehend the magnitude of who Christ is and who we are in and to Him. (9/13/2010)
