Leadership Tips

Dear LWML Leaders,

Confidence in Christian leadership is being grounded in the Word.


Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 1:13).

Leading a meeting sometimes feels like a daunting task, but there are directions to be found in God’s Word.

As the meeting approaches, prepare your mind for action with prayer. Ask the Lord to lead you to what tasks are needed and to help others working with you to seek His guidance as well. Then be sober-minded, or disciplined, as arrangements are made and details handled. If you are prepared, you will lead with confidence. Give clear and concise directions and be available to answer questions if necessary. Finally, pray again. Pray for all participants — both those leading and those listening — that all may receive what God intends for them through this meeting.

When the meeting day arrives, set your hope fully on God’s grace. Be confident that God will work through all those present to further His plan. Greet everyone with a smile and do your best. God’s got this! 

God's Blessings,
