Stress Levels

What do you do when you are faced with difficult situations in life, family, or ministry? How do you respond when a ministry team member, board member, or family member does something that causes you great stress? In recent months, there have been times when I’ve dealt with challenges at work and there have been other times when family life has caused me stress. How to navigate these waters? That can be the million-dollar question for many of us.

Leading More Like Jesus

This special 25th anniversary article, written by Arrow leader Calvin Lamar Brown, addresses the leader’s stewardship responsibility of #GrowingLeaders. His insight provides a great framework for you to share with other leaders, and to reflect and discuss with your leadership team.

How did you become a leader? I’m not asking how you received your latest appointment; rather, I’m asking how you grew into a person of character and competence, capable of leading others in whatever endeavour God has called you to.

Fingerprint

Go ahead and pause for a moment and think about how God has used others to shape and prepare you to lead more like Jesus. I suspect your story is as unique as your fingerprint or DNA. I also suspect a community exists in your story; namely, someone or some number of people who invested in you along the way – invested in your growth as a person, but more specifically as a leader.

Am I right? Continue Reading

The Importance of ‘Yes’

| 25th Anniversary, General Leadership | Comments Off on The Importance of ‘Yes’

Being Led More By Jesus

In this special 25th anniversary article, Arrow leader Stephanie Dyck shares her discoveries about what it means to ‘say yes to Jesus’. Maybe you know someone at a crossroads in life who could benefit from reading her story.

When I think of what it means to be led more by Jesus, I remember a few significant and often unexpected transitions in my life. Without ‘saying yes to Jesus’ at those moments in time, I would not be where I am today. Each encounter with Him at these kairos (opportune) moments brought me deeper into the unique purpose and plans that He has for me. Every time, He challenged me by asking, “Do you trust Me?”

Question Mark 2Two and a half years ago, I knew that I was at a crossroads. It seemed like everything I was reading in Scripture and all that I was hearing pointed to a big change in my life. It made no sense to me, and I had many good excuses, so I resisted moving forward for a season.

During a time that I set aside to seek His will on what I should do, I was reading about when God, in essence, asks the Israelites: How long will you refuse to listen, and continue to be a rebellious and stiff-necked people? (See Exodus 16:28; Deut. 31:27 & 32:9)  Continue Reading

Ten Percent More Friendly

 

Happy FaceLeading More To Jesus

You might not meet a friendlier guy than the Rev. Dr. David Overholt. In this special 25th anniversary article, Dave’s personality and gifting converge to emphasize our role in God’s mission to draw people to Himself. As you think of others who could benefit from the enthusiasm and simplicity of this article, please share it!

There are few times on this planet when we are allowed to pull back the curtain and see the supernatural work of God. None is more accessible that when God uses us to see more come to Jesus. No matter what your theological stripe, we all agree that God is drawing people to Himself. To be asked to participate in this love story is a deeply spiritual activity adding effervescence to our own faith. We may not see people come to faith all around us. However, we can easily have a part to play in people’s journeys. God uses something as simple as “asking for opportunities” and being “10% more friendly.” Continue Reading
