Wednesday Mind Dump

I feel like I am on a steep learning curve right now. We hosted the Chick-fil-a Leadercast last week and I have been watching last year's Catalyst Conference over the last two weeks. So much to process and take in right now. I'm mining for the gold nuggets that God is seeking to infuse into my leadership.

Been wrestling lately with the question - Am I delegating tasks or authority? When I delegate tasks I'm raising up followers. When I delegate authority I am raising up leaders. I say I want leaders, but do my actions demonstrate and lead to where I want to go? I'm not always liking what I am hearing as I am wrestling with God on this one.

God lead me to Psalm 42 today. Wow, I needed to read that more than I realized.

Kelli and I have been invited to spend some time this summer in Honduras with Don and Suzanne Rumbaugh. I really want to go, but for all the right reasons. Listening to God on that one.

Interesting reading on the state of our denomination and the "Call to Action" to become vital congregations. I wonder if this will merely be a report or if it will truly turn into a call to action that will lead us to make disciples of Jesus Christ? My commitment has been and always will be to be obedient to God. This has put us into the category of a vital congregation, today. But every church on that list, including us, are only three or four decisions away from no longer being vital and obedient to God.

Just the fact that you are wrestling and learning is a powerful sign of your leadership. Leaders are Learners!
