EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP IN THE CHURCH SETTING IS NO DIFFERENT TO THAT IN THE HOME SETTING. HOWEVER, WHEN THE LEADERSHIP AT HOME IS NOT EFFECTIVE, THE CHURCH SHOULD BE THE PLACE WHERE THE REWIRING TAKES PLACE. THE FUNCTIONING OF THE CHURCH IS TO BECOME THE SECOND FAMILY (ACCORDING TO PSALM 68 - HOME FOR THE LONELY AND FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS) HEALING THE WOUNDS THE FIRST FAMILY CAUSED AND PROVIDING THE THINGS THAT THE FIRST FAMILY DIDN'T PROVIDE. THERE IS AN ORDER: HEALING THEN SERVING. WE WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE IN OUR SERVING IF OUR WOUNDS ARE STILL OPEN.
Do you feel afraid?
Do you feel like the weight of leadership is too heavy for you to carry?
It's okay to feel afraid. We all feel that way from time to time. This is why God gifted so many of his children with the ability to encourage others. You may even be that person with the gift of encouragement now in need of encouragement today. As you listen to the words of the song in this video, I pray that you'll feel the presence of God and recognise that you're not alone. God wants you to feel His loving embrace as you read His Word, listen to songs of praise and be energised to keep serving.
Discipleship| Effective Leadership
An effective model of leadership to apply whether you are a parent or leader in the church community, school or other setting.
First, the leader leads while the student learns. Next, the student and the leader work together so that correction can be made where needed and advance training given where necessary. Once the student has grasped the concept, more responsibility is given so that the practise can take place. Finally, the student graduates. That student now has the opportunity and authority to teach/mentor others and the process continues.
Jesus' small group consisted of 12 disciples. At home, our small group consists of the children placed in our care.
LEADERSHIP in the home reflects the leadership in the church, in our schools, in our places of employment, in our government system and in the wider national and international community. Therefore, it is imperative for leaders within these settings to be aware of the correlations.
Below are videos that applies to the way the training should take place, irrespective of cultural setting or style of teaching:
Step 1 - I do, you watch
Step 2 - We do together
Step 3 - You do, I watch
Step 4 - You disciple others.
