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.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28).

Even though Paul isn’t speaking to leaders, I can’t imagine a more leadership-appropriate message. Church leadership is full of tragedy and triage, one can easily become disheartened. Our perseverance is uniquely tied to our belief that God is already at work alongside us, reconciling the most difficult situations to Himself. 

Don't fall into the trap of avoiding things that are beyond your ability. The sooner you see that God is at work through you in your leadership position, the less you will rely upon yourself to accomplish the tasks at hand. As long as you are following the Lord’s guidance, you will begin to see the organization flourish as He uses you in the leadership position.

God's Blessings,
