The Making of a Leader- Team Meeting

Nehemiah 1:1-4

Laws of Leadership

  • Nothing happens until someone provides leadership
    • Proverbs 28:2, Judges 21:25
  • Leadership is influence
    • 1 Timothy 4:2
    • A “LEADER” is someone with God-given ability and responsibility to influence a group of God’s people to accomplish God’s work for that group.
  • The test of leadership is visible when the leader is absent
    • John 10:27, 1 Corinthians 11:1
  • The foundation of leadership is character NOT charisma
    • 1 Timothy 3:1-13
  • Leadership can be learned
    • Philippians 4:9, Mark 3:14, Timothy 2:2
  • The moment you stop learning you stop leading
    • Ecclesiastes 10:10
  • God is not looking for ability in leaders as much as he is looking for availability

    Good stuff. It is nice to know God isn’t looking for ability, but availability. And He can teach us what we need to learn. I think there is always more that I need to learn.
