Let Me Lead

Let Me Lead

I know that I was created for this; So let me lead

I may not look like, act like, talk like, or think like you; You still need to let me lead

I know that you’re the boss; One day that will be; I promise you will see; If you just let me lead  

I know that you don’t like the word submit; Sometimes you even throw a fit; You don’t understand what I’m dealin’ wit; This is what I’m called to do; It’s True, It’s True, It’s true; So just let me lead

I’m a leader; I’m not a poet; I can make a difference in this world and I know it; If you will just give me the opportunity to show it; Please, just let me lead

Never-mind, I don’t need your permission… I’m A Leader!

To all the leaders out there… Go make it happen!  Transcend The Isms’

Hybels, Furtick and Groeschel

This is one of those blog post titles that the search engines will really like.  Today we are kicking off our annual all-staff event; we call it The October Event.  I know you are probably thinking, that’s quite a name for the most innovative church in America… well innovation comes in many variations and I like the name.  This event allows for every single staff member from every single campus, central office, network church and their spouses once a year to come together for a great time to be inspired, worship, have fun and fellowship.  During the course of the next three days we will be hearing from Bill Hybels, Steven Furtick and our Senior Pastor Craig Groeschel.

This morning we will kick off our Level 5 Leaders meeting which is comprised of the Directional Leadership Team, Central Team Leaders, Regional Campus Pastors and Campus Pastors along with their spouses.  The Level 5 Meeting is always a great time to hang, share and have some iron sharpen iron time with your peers.  The Level 5 Leaders meeting will last the majority of the day and we will reconvene this evening with the entire all-staff from all the campuses, central teams, network churches and their spouses for dinner.  We have a special treat for dinner this evening, as Bill Hybels will be tonight’s speaker. 

This event is a busy time, but a great time of learning, worshiping, dreaming and connecting.  We will hear from Steven Furtick tomorrow and Craig on Friday.  I will keep you posted as to the things God stirs up over these next few days.

Follow me on twitter, I will be frequently updating my thoughts, experiences and sharing quotes:

  • Any questions, thoughts or comments? 
  • How important is team development and connection within an organization?
  • Share any beneficial staff connection times that you have experienced within an organization?

A Man of Faith

There are some early mornings where I sit quietly in my office and just just stare at the wall or my bookshelf and reflect on how blessed that I am, my family is and our country is.  Well this morning was one of those mornings where I just simply stared at my bookshelf and every once and awhile I will just look at all the books on my shelf for some inspiration which to write about.  As I was glancing down the many titles and genres of books… my eyes became fixated on this book entitled “A Man of Faith.”

I took this particular book off the shelf and began to read through the pages of a book about a young Texas Governor whose gubernatorial leadership was based on his strong faith.  I began to read through the pages about his relationships, friendships and counsel he sought from all types of Godly spiritual leaders.  I reflected on his claim to fame as the Texas Governor being his faith-based initiatives and how he obtained the title of being a compassionate conservative.

As I sit here right now there is a much different scenario, situations have happened and this man sits in the white-house with an abismal approval rating and many people whom downright despise him… how times have changed.  By no means is this a “political post;” however God did speak to my heart to share that our President is A Man of Faith, has a family, has challenges, has feelings, seeks God, falls short… and inspite of all that, he is the leader of our country.  The same thing will be true for the new leaders that we elect in 34 days and let us always be mindful of this verse in Romans:

Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.  Romans 13:1

Through all of the political rhetoric and nonsense; let’s seriously pray for our leaders on both sides of the isle!
