The Myth of God Driven-ness By R. Scott Rodin

So what is driving your driven-ness? Perhaps today, it’s time to assess your God driven-ness and how you approach what you believe you are called to do. What do people get for all the toil and anxious striving with which they labor under the sun? All their days their work is grief and pain; even…

“How do I not become a hallow soul? Never lose the wonder." Margaret Feingberg

Wonder By Alec Hill

We all need wonder in our lives. Wonder makes us gasp, causing us to say, “oh my.” It may be experienced while walking on a shoreline, watching a newborn enter the world, or listening to incredible music.   As ministry leaders, we sense wonder when our mission is fleshed out before our eyes. This may…

Physical and Spiritually set!

Physical and Spiritual Fitness By Dr. Bob Snyder

Physical and Spiritual Fitness Strengthens You I enjoy the disciplines of fitness and physical exercise because it fits my “to-do list” mentality. Yet, when I apply this same mentality to my spiritual life I often fall short. For instance, reading through my Bible in a year does not necessarily produce growth. Yielding to the work…

GPS: God’s Protection System for YOU Like many, I find it difficult to drive without a GPS, but despite having this tool, I still find myself distracted by my surroundings, my four kids in backseat, or incoming calls (hands-free of course). While I have the roadmap provided for me, I still tend to lose track…

To serve down, you must look down.

Will You Serve Down? By Tom Mangham

Serve Down: Learning to Lead Like Jesus I am convinced that Jesus wants followers who intuitively understand that to “serve up” in God’s kingdom means that we actually “serve down.” Take for example how Jesus differentiates his loyal followers from the phonies (described as sheep and goats).  He doesn’t look at who prays the longest,…

Theology of Engagment

Theology of Engagement By Dr. Zenet Maramara

A Steward’s Engagement With the World The transformational role of the steward leader—in the church, ministries, and the marketplace—requires an understanding of the theology of engagement or the theology of public life as Charles Matthews calls it (Theology of Public Life. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2007). It is not just limited to direct political…

What kind of leader am I?

What Kind of Leader Am I? By Eddie Baugher

Choosing Between Being a Serving or a Self-Serving Leader As we consider the question, “Am I a serving leader or a self-serving leader?” We need to do so with honesty through God’s eyes (as He sees us).  I believe this is difficult but not impossible to do.  Early Narratives From a very young age we…
