Mark Peterkins – Arrow Story

| 25th Anniversary, General Leadership, To The Point | Comments Off on Mark Peterkins – Arrow Story

Arrow’s Vision is to see: Christian Leaders equipped to influence every sphere of society, impact every nation, and reach every person for Jesus. In celebrating Arrow Leadership’s 25th year, we’ve asked Arrow Leaders – from class 1 to present – to share their insights on “being led more by, leading more like and leading more to Jesus.”

Mark Peterkins experienced significant impact in his confidence as a leader through his involvement in the Arrow Leadership Program (Class 13). This positioned him well for his responsibilities as Executive Director of One Way Ministries – a ministry that reaches the city of Ottawa by serving its leaders.

Breaking Down Generational Barriers

| 25th Anniversary, General Leadership, To The Point | Comments Off on Breaking Down Generational Barriers

Leading More Like Jesus

Michelle Arthur, Arrow Class 29, has written this special 25th Anniversary article with a focus on breaking down generational barriers. This, she says, will promote value for every believer, no matter their age, as a significant member of the body of Christ. This is a great article for church leaders to read and process together.

Many of us are familiar with the concepts of mentoring and discipleship. However, after nearly a decade serving women in both parachurch and local church contexts, I have experienced hundreds of blank stares when I encourage women to seek mentors and challenge them to become one.

These women say they don’t feel qualified for such a role, despite being long-time believers, faithful church attenders, and regulars at their Bible studies. Continue Reading

In Desperate Need of Grace

| 25th Anniversary, General Leadership, To The Point | Comments Off on In Desperate Need of Grace

Leading More To Jesus

In this special 25th Anniversary article, Arrow leader Sam Kim, Class 30, shares his passion for the Church to be an expression of God’s grace to the world. As you read and share this with others, keep in mind the phrase Jesus often used with his listeners: “for those who have ears to hear.”

The Bible clearly teaches us that God’s power is made perfect in our weakness and not our strength. Paul asserts in 2 Corinthians 12:9:

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.

Broken Glass

Ironically, this seems to go against not only our natural inclination, but that of our churches as well. What is typically honored in Christian spirituality is the appearance of strength and neatness, an obsessive form of meticulousness that leaves little room for ambiguity. In reality, life is full of ambiguity and messiness. In reality, we all need God’s grace.

Come, See Like Jesus

| 25th Anniversary, General Leadership, To The Point | Comments Off on Come, See Like Jesus

Leading More Like Jesus

“Come and you will see.” In this simple and brief invitation, Jesus unfurls a deeply important leadership principle that we, as leaders seeking to lead like Jesus, need to understand and implement.

Perspective

Effective leadership requires the ability to see – to not only have vision but even more importantly, to have perspective. What I mean by “perspective” is how we see – the biblical framework that informs and guides how we approach our leadership, challenges we face, people we serve with, and opportunities we encounter.

A Movement of Redeeming Love

| 25th Anniversary, General Leadership, To The Point | Comments Off on A Movement of Redeeming Love

Leading More To Jesus

This special 25th anniversary article, written by Arrow leader David Dwight, emphasizes the Church as a movement of redeeming love to lead more people to Jesus. This is a great article to share with others in your church community – to dialogue and identify ways that you are part of God’s family vision.

People + Globe

Years ago I read a commentary that said: “When Jesus taught us to pray and began with ‘Our Father’ he changed religion forever. He taught us that God was personal and he taught us that His vision was a family vision.”

God’s redemptive family vision sweeps from Abraham to the manger, to the book of Revelation’s “heavenly multitude no one could count.” Even from the beginning, when God created Adam and Eve, He who had always lived as Trinity gave His infinite love to a family too large to count. Love is like that: it always wants to give itself away. And God intends to create a family so large that His infinite love will be shared forever. It’s a vision He pursues throughout Scripture and it’s a family vision for which He paid the highest price. Continue Reading
