Leadership Tips

Dear LWML Leaders,

Our Tips for Leading with Confidence are focusing on Scripture. Confidence in Christian leadership is being grounded in the Word.

He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it (1 Thessalonians 5:24). 

This verse is not specific to those in leadership positions. Is it important that leaders have this reminder in the back of their minds at all times? Absolutely!

When leading gets difficult (and it will), and you want to throw in the towel (which you will), you need to remember when and how you were called to lead, and know that God is going to see you through.

Keep in mind that it doesn't matter how much you know, or how many people follow you. The litmus test of leadership is operating in God's strength, not your own. Be realistic about your abilities and know that God will be there each step of the way.

God's Blessings,
