Creative Spiritual Leadership
There are two kinds of leadership:
A lording leadership
A serving leadership

A lording leadership centers more on getting the job done by supervision and control.
It exercises influence and power over others in order to accomplish the task.
A serving leadership allows Christ to be the Head in spirit as well as in letter.
Leaders as well as members must submit to the will of God.
They deal with all members with a servant's heart.
The primary goal is to build people in the faith and to have a community of love
by edifying them through the Word of God. ... More

Effective Christian Leadership
Apostle Paul provides us a look at principles of effective Christian Leadership.
These are principles are for the pastor and all church leaders.
These are not the same leadership principles you will find in contemporary books.
These are Christian principles. ...More

The Hostile Aggressive Person
The hostile-aggressive person combines an active aggressiveness with hostility.
Hostility and aggression can appear together.
It is possible to be aggressive without being hostile and vice versa.
Aggressiveness is that quality we see in people who attempt to shape the world and people
as they want them to be or believe they ought to be.

Hostility, which may be intended to wound, can be coupled with an absence
of direct aggression.
That silent unresponsive person who refuses to respond to the desire or need
for conversation may also be expressing hostility.

There are three different ways in which the qualities of hostility and aggressiveness
combine into very abrasive behavior, and we will examine some specific methods
for coping with each of them. ...More

Coping with Hostile Aggressive Bullies
Coping requires that you not fulfill their expectation that you will be put out
of commission through either fear or rage.
At the same time you must avoid an open confrontation with them over
who is right and who is the winner. ...More

Dealing with Criticism
A minister's reaction to criticism can make him or break him.
"Let all bitterness, and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away
from you along with all malice.
Be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ
also has forgiven you." (Ephesians 4: 31-32)

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." (Proverbs 15: 1)
"Through presumption comes nothing but strife, but with those
who receive counsel is wisdom." (Proverbs 13: 10)

It probably could be said that there are two classes of preachers – those who
have not been criticized, and those who will be criticized.
What shall the pastor do when he is criticized? ...More

Impossible People
This is about coping with impossible people.
This is about how to identify, understand, and cope with those impossible people
in your life.
Here are some of the types of impossible people: ...More

Some Leadership Rules
People want to go along with people they get along with."
"When followers don't like the leader or the vision, they look for another leader.
When followers don't like the leader but they do like the vision, they still look for another leader.
When followers like the leader but not the vision, they change the vision..
When followers like the leader and the vision, they will get behind both." ... More

Resolving Conflicts
God didn't call us together with people like ourselves just so we could get along.
He has brought us together to challenge each other, and to love each other as He loves us.
He has brought us together to teach each of us to affirm the other's worth and dignity.
He has brought us into the church to teach us to forgive, love, and cherish one another
for Christ's sake.
For that reason, any toehold, Satan hopes to claim because of our diversity and inevitable conflicts
will change into a positive opportunity to learn more about love for one another.
Only God could create such a community!
What a faithful and mighty God we serve! ...More

Leadership Qualities
Leadership is simply influence.
It is the ability of one person to influence others.
One can lead others only to the extent that he can influence them to follow his leadership.
Lord Montgomery defined leadership as "The capacity and will to rally men and women
to a common purpose,
and the character which inspires confidence."

Admiral Nimitz of World War II declared, "Leadership may be defined as that quality in a person
that inspires sufficient confidence in his subordinates, has to be willing to accept his views
and carry out his commands."

John R. Mott, a world leader in Christian missions, gave as his definition,
"A leader is one who knows the road, who can keep ahead, and who pulls others after him."

Leaders must view clearly the goal to be reached, plan innovative strategy and tactics
by which it can be attained, and then convince others to join with them in pursuit of it.

Not every Christian is called or qualified for a position of major leadership, but all are leaders
to the extent that they influence others.
All of us can, if we will, increase our leadership potential.
All Christians are under obligation to be the best they can be for God.
If your leadership potential can be improved, you have a responsibility to God to improve it. ...More
