As a leader right now, I feel I am in deep “do-do.” Ever feel like that? Way in over your head, tackling something above your ability? So much so, you sit almost completely numb, just thinking to yourself, “I better run away right now, before everyone finds out I really can’t do this!”
Having taken the helm of theSticks conference and gatherings, along with continuing to develop The COMB Network, and pastor Cornerstone, I say, WHAT!!! How can I do all this? The answer is simple I can’t. I need HELP! What God has has done is… surround me with the most incredible team in the world! I wrote recently, “you can measure God’s favor on you, by who He has put in your life.” That is certainly true when it comes to church and ministry staff.
On thing I have been challenged to do recently in light of all that is on the radar, is to be sure I am ferociously raising up leaders! I am starting to put in place a system similar to the pattern Jesus used:
> Inspire a crowd
> Influence a group
> Invest in a circle of 12
> Intern a core of 3
As leaders, we can never stop raising up others, that we hope will be able to do what we do, and even greater things than we did! If we ever stop producing high quality leaders…
