Leadership Characteristics

Leaders motivate–they inspire others to be better than themselves, to reach for something bigger than themselves.  Leaders are positive, they help people see potential not obstacles.

Leaders prioritize–they clarify purpose and set boundaries.

Leaders provide perspective–they see the big picture, they understand the consequences of decisions but are not limited by current negative circumstances.

Leaders give permission to others to cause change.  They give people permission to fail in the attempt to improve.

And significant Christian leaders pray.  They have leadership gifts, drive and motivations, but they are dependent on God.  They understand they are are limited, but God is not.  They intercede for others knowing that people are the ministry.

I love to study the Bible and I love to engage with others in learning. I had been privileged to do this on a regular basis through church ministry and through part-time teaching at a local Bible colleges. Helping individuals learn to feed themselves through their own study of God’s Word is joy-giving to me. Influencing groups to do life and church from a biblically grounded, theologically faithful perspective is my passion.
