Leading More Like Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Dave Lee accentuates that our use of power has a tremendous impact on how we live, love, lead and serve. Think about ways you could incorporate these concepts and reflection questions for transformation in your church and community.  

A couple I know was part of a larger group of friends who had planned an international cruise together. The wife had reminded her husband numerous times to double-check the passports. Annoyed, he’d assured her he had it under control. On the day of their departure, as they waited in line to board the ship, he was horrified to discover that he had brought their old expired passports. They were unable to join their party and had a very tense flight back home. Continue Reading

A Dose of Humility

Led More By Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Tim McCarthy shares about a discovery that is helping him to be led more by Jesus in all aspects of his life. Can you relate?

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”

1 Peter 5:6

It was the ‘last straw’! One of my kids had made another foolish and inconsiderate decision. Why would anyone want to do that? What was this child thinking! Tempers flared; I made my frustration abundantly clear. I expected this terrible thing to never happen again. After some huffing and puffing, my chastised child grudgingly acknowledged that it shouldn’t have happened. Satisfied, I returned to my own corner of the mat in victory. Continue Reading

Lead more to Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Bill Hogg (Arrow Class 11) gives us a charge to do the work of an evangelist and he provides practical suggestions for all of us to be engaged in proclaiming good news amongst pre-Christians, skeptics and explorers. Share this article with people in your leadership sphere and use it as a conversation-starter to define your own discipleship training and equipping game plan.

Many leaders become conversant with profiles like 16PF, Birkman and Myers-Briggs. Some savvy leaders can identify what their APEST (apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd, teacher) is. As a leader, you might self-describe as extroverted or introverted or discover that you land on one side of the intuitive-analytical spectrum.

The apostle Paul has timeless words that trump your personality profile or your self-description. This fearless, faithful gospel sage had an exhortation for a protégé, which is true for every Christian leader under the sun. Paul challenged Timothy, who methinks might have been a shepherd-teacher, with an enduring exhortation: Do the work of an evangelist (2 Tim. 4:5). Just do it! Continue Reading

3 Leadership Principles We Can Learn from Shepherds

| 25th Anniversary, To The Point | Comments Off on 3 Leadership Principles We Can Learn from Shepherds

Leading More Like Jesus

In this 25th anniversary article, Sharon Simmonds (Arrow Class 16) briefly explores the imagery of shepherding in the Bible, and draws three leadership principles that will guide and enable us to lead more like Jesus. As you reflect on how Jesus embodies shepherding, as the Leader of leaders, share and discuss what it means to lead more like a shepherd in your family, church, or organization. 

I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding. Jeremiah 3:15 NIV

Interested to learn more about the connection between shepherding and leadership, I visited and interviewed two local shepherds. One comment greatly intrigued me: a calm shepherd creates a calm atmosphere, whereas a rushed or abrupt shepherd creates unsettled and jittery responses in the sheep. This logical insight caused me to reflect on Jesus the good Shepherd and to consider what it might look like for me to lead more like Him – like a shepherd after His own heart. Continue Reading
