I have been in YWAM for over 40 years now and just about all that time I have been involved in leadership of one sort or another – from DTS, city teams, national and regional leadership and for the last 10 years running a leadership retreat centre.

In 2010, I started sharing my experiences and lessons that I was learning in leadership through a monthly leadership letter and have been writing ever since. So there are well over 100 articles to choose from covering a wide breadth of leadership issues. I have categorised them according to the 7 values of the leadership development course – strategic, spiritual, self-surrendered, servant, shared, structured and sensorial. So check out a topic you are needing or looking for right now and hopefully you will find something helpful. Thanks for reading.

For those who have attended an LDC, there is a follow up course called – Going Deeper. It consists of a monthly letter for 12 months, going over the main topics of LDC with fresh application into your leadership. Here is the link to sign up for going deeper: Apply here 

Do you feel stressed?

Yesterday I woke up feeling grumpy.  A few days before that, I got out of bed feeling a bit low emotionally.  Last week I woke up feeling so tired, I just wanted to roll over and go to sleep again.  Anyone relate? The amount of stress in our lives creeps up on us without warning…

Are you engaging in ‘caring connections’?

I have a challenge for you this month that I believe will inspire you and make a measurable difference in your life.  It will only take an hour/month and a little initiative to get it going.  OK – here it is: Start a group of 3 or 4 people that you connect with and who…

Are we in danger of causing a deep sigh from Jesus?

In Mark 8, Jesus is talking with the pharisees or rather they are arguing with him and putting him to the test.  They are looking for a sign from heaven to prove his authority in what he is declaring as truth.  In response Jesus breathes a deep sigh and leaves without giving them any specific…

How do you discern God’s will as a team?

I think most of us think that as a Christian leadership team, or Christian community, our decision-making processes should be different from the business or secular models, but that difference can often be reduced to a prayer at the beginning and end of the meeting!…

Advert for preschool or early childhood training

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE YOU THINK WOULD BE INTERESTED. Rite Mayers has been leading ‘Preschool in a suitcase’ seminars for many years and this online training course will cover similar content with her team of teachers, but in just 6 sessions on zoom. Each of the 6 training days will consist of two…

How do I develop resilience?

For the last year Rite and I have experienced difficulties on every ministry trip we have made, with challenges like fires, earthquakes, cyclones, missed connections, floods, and cars breaking down. Let me share one experience.  We had planned a trip to Canberra for a leadership development course.  We were waiting for our flight and the…

What needs a necessary ending in your life?

Do you need to end something?  I think we would all agree that we are over COVID 19 and want it to end but it seems to be re-emerging in country after country.  The end isn’t in sight yet.  Some endings are out of our control.  Some of us like to end things that are…

Are we stuck in our thinking?

Our worldview has an incredible effect on what we think, feel and act. On the news the other night, there was an interview with an African lady who was fighting for freedom regarding the 200 million women undergoing female genital mutilation.  The WHO has been actively seeking to stop the practice for many years but…

What can we learn about self awareness from the Jesuits?

I have just been reading an inspiring book called, ‘Heroic Leadership’ by Chris Lowney, about the Jesuits who have been working as an order or company, as they prefer to call it, for over 450 years.  They have obviously been doing something right!  The following thoughts are excerpts from a few chapters of the book.…

What are we learning two months into lockdown?

‘My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger…

How do we use our time during lockdown?

When you have a forced isolation, or lockdown like we have in Spain and other nations right now, what do we do with our time?  Even when the world isn’t involved in a pandemic, we have issues of sickness, accident, hospitalisation, burn out, imprisonment, cancellation of events and suchlike, that cause us to rethink our…

How do you give your very best strawberries?

I read a short quote from our SacredSpace morning devotion a couple of weeks ago that hasn’t left me. I share it with you here: In an essay about the crushing loss of a friendship novelist Jacqueline Mitchard crafted a brilliant phrase. To describe how she had neglected other relationships during the ill-fated friendship, Mitchard…

Can you read the room?

I loved the title in one of Dan Reiland’s posts – ‘If you can’t read the room, you can’t lead the room.’  Our lives are full of relationships with others and with meetings of one kind and another and whether we are talking with our wives, our kids, teaching a group of students or having…

Have you debriefed your journey this year?

It’s been a habit for years now of taking a day in December to reflect back over the past year, and then look forward with expectation for the new year ahead.  I like to mix it up every year and create a different way of reflecting.  I think I could call it a spiritual discipline…

Are you indifferent?

The dictionary definition of the word ‘indifferent’ is ‘lack of interest, concern, or sympathy.’  For example: “she shrugged, feigning indifference”.  But this isn’t the kind of indifference I want to talk about.  St Ignatius, the Spanish monk who began the Jesuits, developed many spiritual exercises, one of which was called ‘indifference.’   Let me tell…

How is my confession?

When I think of confession, I am immediately reminded of the verse I memorised in my early discipleship: 1 John 1:9 ‘But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to purify us from all unrighteousness.’  I was taught that confession was a personal practice…

Do women have an advantage in leadership?

In YWAM we are blessed to have a leader who isn’t afraid of writing a book called – why not women?  We are used to hearing teaching on the ‘Father heart of God’, but perhaps less so on the ‘Mother heart of God.’  Right at the beginning of Genesis we read, ‘So God created human…

How do we give and receive feedback?

What comes to mind when you think of the word ‘feedback’?  When was the last time you can remember receiving feedback where your response was, ‘that was very helpful’? And when was the last time you were affirmed by someone who was receiving feedback from you?  For many of us, we have to think very…

Do you have conversations on purpose?

There are all kinds of statistics given how women talk three times as much as men but actually there is nothing substantial to back them up.  The reality is that men & women probably talk as much as each other if they are extrovert and if they are introvert, they don’t talk as much! Talking…

Can you drink the cup?

I have read this little book by Henri Nouwen several times now and I think it will be one of those books regularly taken out of the bookshelf for a recap.  It’s a book about the story of our lives.  Our lives are made up of a mixture of both joy and sorrow, although if…

How is technology impacting your life?

When was the last time you assessed the impact of technology in your life?   My mum is 95 years old and has never been good with technology.  She has never driven a car, never watched a video, never sent a text or opened a website, never held a smart phone or even know what…

How do you create habits?

I was watching a TV show the other day where a doctor wasn’t allowing a patient to go through a cultural ritual and as a result, she was very anxious and uptight.  After this incident, the doctor’s partner caught the doctor going through his own ritual in getting ready for a surgery – a certain…

How do you spot leadership potential?

The bible suggests that the state of a nation is influenced strongly by the leaders it puts in place.  When Israel installed a good king, the nation was prosperous and flourished.  When a bad king took over, the nation went downhill. We see the results of good and bad leaders in our families, teams, bases…

How do you deal with distractions?

I opened my computer to book a flight yesterday and an hour later, I had read some emails, paid my visa bill, journaled a few thoughts but not booked the flight!  How does that happen?  How many times are you on route to do something but never actually get there? Do you find you get…

How emotionally healthy are you?

They always ask the question – who’s a good boy, never how’s the good boy! I had to smile as I saw this meme.  It made me realise how often we don’t pick up on the emotional needs of one another.   A question that Peter Scazzero asks in his book, ‘Emotionally healthy spirituality’ is this: Can you…

Is your leadership characterised by mercy and peace?

Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men! Luke 2:14 Have salt among yourselves and be at peace with each other.” Mark 9:50 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  John 14:27 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.  Blessed are the peacemakers, for…

What’s been happening this year?

For many years now, going back as far as I can remember, we have had a custom of spending some time in debriefing at the end of each year.  We have created or borrowed a different approach each year to keep it alive and interesting.  We have also added times of contemplation and the use…

How are you looking after your body?

Here’s a question for you: What do you enjoy most – eating, exercising or sleeping?  We need all three of course but rarely go without eating, often go without exercising and sometimes burn the candle at both ends, struggle with insomnia and miss out on sleep.  All three are integrated and one effects the other. …

Do you weep with those that weep?

I don’t remember crying much in my early years – apart from when my brother would tease me, as most older brothers do. There is a classic picture of me when I am small, sitting on the edge of a bench not wanting to be in a family picture – of course they are all…

What could you stop doing?

Think back to when you started to learn to drive.  There were so many things to learn and remember.  Then as soon as you began to get the moves down, you started a bad habit like crossing your hands over the wheel and the instructor would say – no please don’t do that as you…

Why do people leave teams?

There have been a number of key studies into the reasons missionaries leave the field, and the answers are wide and varied.  The world evangelical alliance came out with a key research project 20 years ago that found the number one reason was conflict with peers.  Is that still the same today?  Well, I don’t…

Do you have a seat at the table?

As a young child, I was brought up to always eat my meals around the table and on Sundays and special occasions I would often help in setting the table. I have always enjoyed the aesthetics of a beautifully ordained table, almost as much as eating the flavourful food on it. But tables are more…

What is your rule of life?

There is a rediscovery going on in recent times, where we have come to recognise that over the centuries there have been some very godly men and women who have had a lot of wonderful things to share.  This revelation makes us realise that we are missing out on some gold nuggets of truth if…

Where are you going?

At the end of every year, we have an evaluation time as a couple.  We look at what we have been doing, how effective it was, what fruit was produced, how fulfilling it has been and on the basis of these questions decide what needs to be changed.  A couple of years ago, we were…

Been pruned lately?

I came home after a two month trip away to find that the large carob tree in our prayer garden had been massacred by our gardeners.  It looked so ugly with a pile of branches scattering the garden below.  The gardeners called it pruning and said that now the tree could become healthy again. What…

Are you lonely as a leader?

I was caring for my 94 year old mother in Wales at the end of last year for a month.  My Dad died some thirteen years ago and since that time, I have often heard my mum say that she is ‘lonely’.  After 55 years of marriage with hardly any separation during all those years,…

What quotes impact you as a leader?

The above picture is the amphitheatre in ancient Ephesus.  Leaders throughout the ages have shared good principles that have developed from their experience that we would do well to take note of and remember.  Here are a few quotes that have the power to impact our lives. Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and…

What legacy are you leaving?

Max de Pree, says, ‘I wish that at a younger stage of life leaders would know in their hearts, that what they’re figuratively ready to die for is going to change.’ Rite and I have just completed a two-day process of discernment facilitated by friends of another mission organisation, along with some of our YWAM…

Are you a charismatic or humble leader?

There have been various studies carried out to compare these two qualities of charisma and humility.  However, it’s not a question of ‘Am I this or am I that’, the issue is, ‘How do I glorify God in the best way possible with who I am?’  We are probably aware of our level of charisma:…

Are you a shepherd warrior?

We have a constant flow of leaders through the retreat centre who share their stories with us.  They are all doing incredible work but at the same time facing huge challenges.  We find there is an amazing energy and drive among the leaders we meet, to do great exploits for the Lord and they are…

Is acedia a part of me?

Some of you will be saying – what the heck is that?  Acedia (from Latin acedĭa, and from Greek ἀκηδία, “negligence”) according to Aquinas, the word describes a state of listlessness, of not caring or not being concerned with one’s position or condition in the world. Other words often connected with it would be –…

How are you managing people?

Isn’t it funny how particular words mean different things in different cultures and organisations?  Being a visionary organisation as YWAM, the word pastoring didn’t initially sit with us so well.  We are about reaching the world, denying self and completing the great commission.  Where is the accomplishment in looking after people’s needs?  We DO care…

Are you living life to the full?

Jesus said, ‘I came to give you life and life to the full.’  How is that working for you?  Are you really living or just passing the time?   Do you ever think – there has got to be more to life than this?  Perhaps for you, living life to the full means doing less!  Is…

How old am I emotionally?

“If you didn’t know when your birthday was, what age would you give yourself?”  The age you feel may very well be much younger than your number of years living, but that’s OK.  The real question is, are you the same age emotionally, as you are chronologically?  If there is a tendency, and I think…

Do you have enough margin?

I was reading Adele Ahlberg Calhoun’s book called Spiritual disciplines handbook the other day and she relates the following story: A friend of mine tells of how the word of God came to her one day through her four-year-old daughter.  The mother was busy hurrying her daughter out the door when the little girl replied,…

How does the YWAM leadership structure of circles work?

Jesus succession plan: Jesus begins the training of his disciples with a kind of DTS.  Basic application of truth to their lives and outreaches where they preach and see the Holy Spirit really moving in power. Then one day he transitions them from being followers to coming on staff and they are now friends.  All…

Had your buttons pushed lately?

Freor those who don’t know the expression, if you have your button pushed, you have a strong emotional reaction to what someone says or does.  The reaction can be withdrawal or explosion or somewhere in-between but there is a strong emotional response. We all have a dash board with an array of buttons – the…

Enjoying close relationships?

Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them.John 21:20 A metaphor for our walk with God that I relate to well, is that of being on a journey.  The phase in the journey of sanctification or becoming like Christ doesn’t have set formulas and routes but is a journey that…

How about a radical rethink?

o you like having your thinking challenged?  I read a book a while back called ‘Rework’ by Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson and it did just that.  It’s amazing how we hear phrases that are used so often, they begin to become part of our belief system.  Sometimes, just like the value of ministering…

Time to journal?

For the past decade, doctors and psychologists have been taking notice of the health benefits of reflective writing. They note that wrestling with words to put your deepest thoughts into writing can lift your mind from depression, uncover wisdom within your experiences, provide insight and foster self-awareness. Similarly, a recent news article discussed the benefits…

How do you deliver a presentation?

A while ago I wrote a letter on the importance of dialogue in our teaching and training.  I would like to focus in this letter a little more on the elements that enable us to connect with our audience.  TED talks have become very popular over the last few years with millions giving their time…

Enjoying a climate of trust?

I have had the privilege of involvement in some wonderful teams over the years where there has been a solid set of positive values and beliefs that were lived out.  Teams where there was the opportunity of sharing opinions and making decisions together.  Teams where I was believed in and trusted and where it was…

Are you listening with both ears?

A few months back we had a coaching seminar at our retreat centre and leaders were learning the art of listening and asking questions.  They found that listening is a lot harder than they thought it was.  We find it a temptation to interrupt the listening in order to share our own ideas, opinions and…

Enjoying silence

In this age of communication and technology, its difficult to find ‘silence’.  Our culture is addicted to words, music, mobile phones and the constant beeping of social networking.  Silence can make some uncomfortable and the response generally is to fill the space with noise of one kind or another.  In the midst of so many…

How attractive are you as a leader?

My wife Rite was running a preschool workshop in Mozambique and gave a gift of a small mirror to the participants.  Some had never looked at themselves in a mirror before, so you can imagine it was quite the experience for them.  Now they knew how they looked to others.  So when I looked in…

Had a God encounter lately?

This letter is an introduction to the attached document of “7 templates for your time with God.”  These templates each have a different approach to spending time with God and include different spiritual disciplines.  I want to encourage you to explore all seven over this next period of time and expect to meet God in…

Are you aware of your shadow mission?

We all have a purpose of being here on earth.  As soon as we come to the Lord and often even before, we can have a sense of destiny and anointing for certain activities, tasks or callings.  In order to fulfil these callings there is a preparation phase in our life where we develop our…

Making the most of your meals?

If you are like me, you look forward to Christmas partly because of the delicious food that is connected with it.  Like so many Brits, I love Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, mince pies and of course turkey & stuffing, cranberry sauce and about 10 vegetables to go with it!  There’s nothing quite like it.  I…

Does your passion need restoring?

Passion appears to be a force that moves people beyond ordinary human activities.  Some seem to have had it all their lives, others find it grows on them.  Sometimes you have it for a while and then lose it.  You know when you have it and quite aware when you don’t. As soon as I…

How’s your dialogue in teaching?

The power of dialogue in educating adults: A principle is the beginning of an action. And an action that is done regularly becomes something we believe and develops into a value. It is values that we make happen. These issues are worth something to us. If teaching is just something we do that needs to…

How’s your pain threshold?

Pain is part of our normal human life and although God doesn’t create pain for us through our daily circumstances and interactions with people, he is able to use every situation we have to face, to enable us to grow and develop – if we let him.  It’s been said that ‘Pain is inevitable, but…

Do you feel indispensable?

When you have been leading something for a long time, it’s easy to feel like the ministry couldn’t continue without you!  Actually that may be true – especially if you haven’t trained anyone up to take it on from you.  However, generally, we are far less indispensable than we think!  So this letter is about…

What is real?

“What is REAL?” asked the Rabbit one day.  “Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?”  “Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse.  “It’s a thing that happens to you.  When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY…

Is your personality showing?

I recently came away from a meeting feeling quite frustrated at the lack of process included in the decision making and spoke to another leader who was complaining about the lack of implications thinking involved.  However a third  leader in attendance, came away feeling that it had been one of the best meetings to date…

Do you eat last?

What an amazing 60th birthday celebration I have had several years ago!  The joy of meeting with our grown up kids and their spouses from around the world and receiving so many birthday wishes and affirmations from my YWAM family were overwhelming.  I felt humbled, encouraged, blessed and privileged to have been able to serve…

In his presence? – leading worship

Recently I was asked the question, “What is God saying to YWAM global?” My response was, “Two things – the first, flattening the organisation and establishing a shared leadership, and secondly, calling us to spend time ‘In His Presence.’  In this season as I have attended conferences or visited YWAM bases, leaders are giving over…

Are you in danger of mission drift?

I was struck by the statement in Peter Greer and Chris Horst’s book, Mission Drift, that says, “It’s the exception that an organisation stays true to its mission.”   They made it clear that the unfortunate natural evolution of many originally Christ-centred missions is to drift.  I touched on this topic some months ago with regard…

Stepping up with coaching?

Two disciples were on the road to Emmaus and Jesus approached them and asked, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?” And they stood still, looking sad. Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things…

Do you share your leadership?

How do you share leadership? Some would say, you are either the leader or you’re not, you can’t share it!  In the times when Kings ruled nations, there was no question of sharing the leadership.  His word was the law and you went against it at your own peril.  Today we experience a continuum of…

Are you developing a value-driven culture?

The second law of thermodynamics states that everything swerves to rot or put more nicely, tends towards decline.  Mission drift is that law lived out in an organisation.  Mission drift is inevitable if we are not intentional about maintaining two things: keeping a clear focus of our vision and purpose, and communicating and continually living…

How do you handle change?

What is change?  Research has shown that organisations undergo major change about once every three years, and that within that cycle of major change is an almost constant swirl of minor change. Major change in an organisation can include things like new leadership, re-structuring or implementing a whole new focus and vision, while minor change…

Are a generational thinking leader?

When our first son was born, Rite’s mother, her grandmother and great grandfather were all still living.  They covered an age range of a few months to 104.  So we took the opportunity of having a 5-generation picture taken to celebrate the generations. It was very clear that our son was starting life in a…

Have you moved into the second half of life?

How can you be productive and be seeing fruit from your life and yet not feel satisfied?  How can you be full of achievements and successful and yet feel bored or unfulfilled? Have you been asking, “Isn’t there something more?”  You have probably been seeing a lot of football lately with the World Cup taking…

Had a spiritual feast lately?

I have asked Wilrens Hornstra to write this leadership letter.  He is a member of our retreat team and has been involved in SBS (school of biblical studies) for many years.  He has just  started to write a monthly letter centred around the word of God. What do you do to feed yourself spiritually?  There…

Is status an issue?

I was standing in line to board a plane with a friend recently.  According to protocol, the first class, priority seating and platinum card members went first.  My friend was in one of those groups and left me with a smile.  My boarding pass was group 3.  Translated that meant – last to board.  So…

Are you a 360 degree leader?

John Maxwell in his book ‘the 360 degree leader’ talks about the compass directions to identify the different relationships that are required by a leader. These four main compass relationships require different skills, and so as a result we tend to be better at leading and relating in some directions more than others. In this…

How’s your parenting?

This month’s letter is written by Rite and is all about parenting.  If you’re not a Mum or Dad, don’t rush away because actually the same principles for parenting apply to mentoring and discipling, so read on.  Paul shares in 1 Timothy 3:4 that one of the qualities for leaders is, “He must manage his…

Creating an environment?

This weekend we had our son & his fiancé fly down from Scotland to spend a couple of days with us, along with her father and friend.  We had a fantastic two days, sharing and eating and playing together.  They left with a little more colour than they came with, a little more relaxed, and…

Marriage tips

Next month it’s Valentines Day and love will be in the air!  So this month I want to focus on couples and share a few personal tips on marriage from the last thirty-five years of experience.  I am a blessed man having a beautiful and fun loving wife to share these years with and she…

Are you living your priorities?

I was sitting in a meeting the other day hearing a number of leaders share the challenge of wearing a number of hats and having too many things to fit into their schedule. It’s probably the one thing that we can all relate to and understand. Sometimes I sit at my desk and make the…

Planning to finish well?

It’s great to finish the day well, the week, the month and the year, but this article goes beyond this month and is concerned about finishing our life well.  If you are reading this letter and you are still in your 20’s or 30’s you might think – finishing, I am only just starting, this…

Can you forget yourself?

I was recently challenged in my thinking by a little book by Timothy Keller called the freedom of self forgetfulness.  I will summarise some of the content for you in the following letter. The traditional thinking for centuries has been that the main problem in our world is hubris, Greek for pride, and that people…

Is my leadership in danger?

“Jesus called them together and said, you know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them.”  Mark 10:42 I read a little book by Lord David Owen a while back called “The hubris syndrome.”  He was a Politician in Britain for…

Are you living in a culture of honour?

At the beginning of the year Rite and I were visiting our kids in Edinburgh where our daughter was working in a 5-star hotel as a waitress.  As a special treat, she took all the family out for a meal in their beautiful restaurant and booked Rite & I into the best room for one…

Is your life in balance?

I received an email from an old friend the other day.  He opened with, ‘How are you, haven’t seen you in ages?’  How do you answer a question like that?  I often go straight into a ministry response – “The retreat centre is going well – just had a wonderful retreat with leaders from all…

Are you sitting too comfortably?

Israel was plateaued spiritually between the old and new Testaments.  There were no prophets and not much really happening.  Then John the Baptist emerged from the wilderness to stir things up.  You couldn’t stay where you were on the plateau – you either were challenged to repent and be baptised by John or reacted against…

What’s your signature sin?

I was just looking at two pictures of Rite and I.  The first was when we got married in Canada in 1979 and the second thirty years later here in Malaga.  Rite obviously hasn’t changed a bit but you can quickly tell the difference in me.  When it comes to asking how much more like…

What is your pathway to God?

This month our retreat centre team enjoyed hosting a ‘pathways to God’ retreat.  We had spent some months in preparation and each of us were able to explore new ways of relating and enjoying our relationship with God.  We all have several pathways that we are used to, but there are others that we can…

Enjoying safe places and still times?

At the leadership centre, we are just about to run a 5-day retreat called “pathways to God”.  There is so much to explore in our relationship with God and so many ways to relate with him.  The following letter contains a couple of simple principles taken from Gordon Macdonald’s book “restoring your spiritual passion.” Safe…

Do you have keys to the city?

The European leadership gathering just took place in Riga, Latvia at the beginning of February 2013.  One of the process times involved thinking together about the foundation stones in pioneering?  What do we need to bear in mind as we pioneer?  What are the ingredients to a good pioneering experience?  We combined our wisdom around…

Are you a dreamer?

Did you ever get disciplined at school for daydreaming?  I can remember looking out of the window of my classroom, deep in thought and being woken by the teacher’s voice.  “Mayers, focus boy!  Generally if you ask me what I am dreaming about or what I want in various categories, I could tell you.  Why…

Had a debrief lately?

I was talking with a guy recently who shared with me that he felt a lack of passion and energy for life.  He had been in some difficult family and ministry situations and had a feeling of disappointment with the way things had turned out.  I asked him he had talked to anyone and he…

How generous are you?

As Christmas comes around we will have slogans shouting at us from every shop window, billboard and TV advert.  We are told it’s a “time of giving,” and so we are encouraged to spend lots of money on presents for our friends and family.  Actually what we are to really celebrate at Christmas is God’s generosity…

What’s your ministry philosophy?

As you face decisions and difficulties in your leadership, you begin to think through what you believe and why you believe it. As time goes on, those beliefs are shaped into a ministry philosophy that you begin to lead by. Then without having to think it all through again, you live and lead from this…

What’s your leadership anointing?

Have you ever wondered why some leaders see incredible growth and others seem to struggle? I think back to leaders that I have worked with who have all had great potential. Some have gone from strength to strength and others just didn’t make it. Having pondered this question for some time, the Lord gave me…
