When everything seems to be against us as a leader, we must hold fast to the truth that God is a breakthrough God! Faith sees differently; it looks beyond the hopelessness of our situation. Sometimes we need to put the naysayers outside and only surround ourselves with the voice of God and those that speak in faith!
Every shepherd leads, but not every leader shepherds! Pulling from the story of Simon Peter, Ps. Jurgen talks about how Jesus was able to rebuke Simon in the harshest way but still Simon followed. This shows not only Simon's ability to take a rebuke, learn from it, and move on, but also how Jesus didnt' worry about someone's feelings in the midst of a teaching moment! Discipling others can sometimes feel like we're movingn backward, but if we lead and guide in love, you can only go up from there!
We are not in the Theology business... we are in the People business! Discipling people means developing people; and if you're going to develop people its going to get messy for sure. Join us as we hear from Ps. Jurgen on how to be an effective leader that builds, empowers, confronts, and praises others.
We are never meant to live under what God has called us to rule over! In this podcast, Ps. Jurgen shows us how to activate the power of God in our lives and how we as leaders must learn to rule over the natural as well as the supernatural.
Sometimes we get so focused on "leadership" and being a "leader", that we zoom past and forget that God first recognizes our "follower-ship" and then makes us a leader! Our goal is not to build followers, but instead to turn followers into leaders.
Leadership is always problem-solving. Sometimes we as leaders can become frustrated with "problems" when in fact they are there to strengthen us! The balance of faith is wisdom, and the balance of wisdom is faith.
