Leadership and Organizational Values and Principles
- Leadership is more effective than management in achieving results through people.
- Our most important priorities are to meet the Great Commission Mandate while, at the same time, developing our people.
- We have clear objectives and a clear vision of where we want to be in the future and we work to get there.
Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law. (Proverbs 29:18)
- I like to empower people to produce strong results.
- A Church is as good as it believes it is. I must constantly reinforce the church’s belief in itself.
- The pew is as good as the pulpit; the student is as good as the teacher. We must seek continued leadership improvement and development.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. (2 Peter 3:18)
- Effective teamwork is essential to produce strong results. Teamwork ministry is central to bigger successes.
- It is okay to disagree, but it is not okay to stop doing what we are supposed to be doing because of disagreement.
- Everyone has something important to contribute. We are one body under the Lordship of Christ and we’re all here to help one another in any way we can to move the team forward and build our own personal skills.
Let every skillful craftsman among you come and make all that the Lord has commanded (Exodus 35:10)
- I never make ministry promises to people that I can’t keep.
- There is tremendous synergy between people performance, standards, lifestyle, idea’s, and influence. The strongest ministry initiatives are those that combine the strongest of each facet.
- We work in ministry to positively impact the church. We always wear a spiritual hat in addition to our own technical hat.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. (Colossians 3:23, 24)
- Digging into and reading sinners’ minds is tremendously important. Without knowing where they are and what they really want, or are even looking for, we can go round and round in circles without ever really reaching out and touching lives.
- I make decisions based upon prayer and the Word of God with strong and good spiritual judgment (discernment).
- We can do things right with patience and stillness. Learning to wait is more important than just getting things done.
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles…(Isaiah 40:31)
- Always credit people for their work and accomplishments. Encouraging goes further than equipping.
- We learn, improve and enhance our ministry(s) every day. What we do well today is likely not good enough tomorrow.
- Planning and strategizing upfront is tremendously more important than just doing things! Once the planning is done right, the doing is a lot easier and a lot more efficient. Flexibility must be a part of every plan or strategy.
- The best defense is an aggressive offense. We must always be on the move never allowing the enemy to learn our tactics.
- Together we make a difference. Unity in community is the key to engaging culture with highly successful wins.
Endeavoring to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesians 4:3)
