5 Helpful Articles for Church Leaders
Rob Jacobs (@RobJacobs_) recently addressed the issue of Trinitarian Leadership. He is challenging you and I to lead based on the model of the Trinity. Where do you find joy? Community? Read the rest of the article for some of the other attributes.
Multiethnic ministry has always been around and is here to stay. It is an important topic for anyone in ministry today. Bryan Loritts (@bcloritts) has lived this in various ministry contexts (here are 25 Bryan Loritts Quotes I compiled). But not in the way you might think. He provides some helpful guidance for anyone in the minority group who is leading among a majority group.
I believe his post not only applies to the United States, but also to other ministries around the world. It’s a fantastic resource to missionaries and other pastors who find themselves serving as a minority leader in a majority context.
Ron Edmondson (@RonEdmondson) wrote up a short post that addresses a few key areas about men. These points may not always be pretty, but do give helpful insight. Any woman striving to better understand her husband will find this post helpful.
I work with pastors and churches around the country. Organizational innovation and change challenge leaders everywhere I go. It’s a rare week when at least one or two people don’t mention Andy Stanley (@AndyStanley). He’s known as a visionary and leader of leaders. In this video post, Stanley discusses how to make change happen by starting with the importance of a crystal clear vision. Make sure you have done the necessary work towards vision clarity before you lead your church, organization, or business forward this year.

Pastor Kevin DeYoung (@RevKevDeYoung) wrote this post about the need for civility. He stresses the importance of civility not only on the internet but anytime we speak about others. But what if we were not only civil but truthful with our speech? Let’s exercise caution to share truth and handle conflict. Make sure it is according to Scripture, not according to our insecurities or need to malign others.
