THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE
The mission of the church has never been about just gathering people.
The mission has always been about making disciples – and sending them.
The clear purpose of the church is found in it’s commitment to – disciple people to become sent ones.
Our simple strategy for fulfilling the great commission of Christ is as follows;
1. RAISE LEADERS
Identify people into four groups
Seekers – What is in it for me?
Servants – How can I be of help?
Stewards – Who do I serve?
Sons – When can I be sent?
2. RELEASE LEADERS
Releasing people requires three things;
Timing – When is the right time?
Place – Where is the best place?
Sent – Who are those sending you?
Some of the signs it is not the right time from the prodigal son.
– Demands inheritance too early
– They went – but were not sent
Always identify who has sent you
3. RESTORE LEADERS
Keep the gate to Father’s House open
There is no sin that disqualifies
Be the house of restoration
Everyone has had an aberration
Even the worst of prodigal sons – wants to come home.
The greatest joy in leadership is seeing sons and daughters of the house – get ready to be sent.
And then releasing them into their world as sent ones – from a Father’s House.
