Takeaways for leaders…

 

Leadership is not something that you do in just one arena. If you’re going to be a leader, you’re going to lead at home, at work, in easy times, in stressful situations--a leader is a leader.

The amount of pressure you can handle as a leader is often based on your mental perspective.

“Pain is a leader’s constant companion.” -Craig Groeschel

Develop the person, not the position.

You have to hand away trust in order to ever see something great.

Leaders must be secure and confident in their calling in order to lead well.

Takeaways for leaders...

It’s not perfection that God adores, it’s a repentant heart.

When you get discouraged with your vision, remember that the Spirit of the living God is working in you and moving hearts.

Even when you feel like nothing is changing, there is a spiritual realm happening that you cannot see.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” -2 Corinthians 4:18

Ask yourself: have I grown in humility, or am I just more successful and therefore less insecure?

Success is being faithful in the lane that God has called you to--personally, publicly, and spiritually.

If you are constantly looking at everyone else’s lane, eventually you will crash.

Today we will be talking about family, marriage, and ministry with Pastor Jonathan Del Turco, Lead Pastor of International Family Church in North Redding, MA.

Takeaways for leaders…

On marriage:

Learn to open the door to let your spouse help you in the anointed way they were called to.

Celebrate with your spouse over the small things.

When you stop pointing the finger at each other in your marriage and start pointing it at yourself, your marriage will improve immensely.

 

On ministry:

Stay the course in ministry. Learn the lesson of longevity.

Check the motives of your ambition. If your “why” is filtered through love, your ambition will be pure.

If you are not willing to adjust with culture as a church, your church body will become one-generational.

When you understand your “why,” the “how” and the “what” are negotiable.

Listen to the people who have bought into the mission of your church.

Integrity gives you the ability to lead at a higher capacity.

Time + integrity = trust.

Live in a glass house and don’t be concerned with who is watching.

If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.
