Here are the top 5 Christian Leadership blog posts on leadership and productivity I read this week, along with some posts from here you might have missed.
Here are the top 5 Christian leadership blog posts on leadership or productivity that I’ve read this past week:
“There is a crisis in the church. People are leaving. And we want them to come back. But before we ask how to get them back, we need to ask why they’re leaving in the first place. It’s not because our churches aren’t big enough, cool enough, relevant enough, or convenient enough. Increasingly, it’s a question of character.”
“Leaders who focus on growing themselves, create healthy habits of development and maintain a posture that they have not arrived are more likely to find true success in their endeavors. Here are 3 questions healthy leaders ask of themselves and those they lead.”
“Charles Spurgeon is one of my favorite writers, even though his writings often challenge me deep in my heart. These words (first directed to preachers, though applicable to all Christian leaders) are especially gripping: ‘It is a shocking state of things when good people say, “Our minister undoes in the parlour what he has done in the pulpit; he preaches very well, but his life does not agree with his sermons.” . . . God help us so to live that we may be safe examples to our flocks!’ If you’re a Christian leader, think about these ways to be a “safe example” to the flock”.
“We know that believers must live by faith, as “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Heb. 11:6). I’m not sure, though, that pastors strive hard enough to let faith guide them in their ministries. Here are some reasons pastors must have faith”.
“We tend to think of leaders as people who are focused on serving others, dedicated to the mission of the work they do, and committed to their people. Unfortunately—as in every field—some people in leadership positions are threatened by those they lead, especially those who embody the qualities they lack as a leader. How can you tell if your leader is freaked out by your competence or confidence? Here are some signs to look for”.
