LIGHTEN UP

Got any back pain these days? How about tightness in your neck or shoulders? Sure, we’re leaning into our computer screens every day, but are we also shouldering responsibilities on our own? Two good friends – both ministry leaders – said the exact same thing to me recently: “I just need two solid weeks where […]

WHY INTENTIONALITY MATTERS   

A leader’s world can spin so fast there’s barely an opportunity to focus on God. But like Olympic divers who regularly orient themselves to the water so they can enter it splash-free – being intentional in our pursuit of God is essential to good leadership.

WHEN WAS YOUR LAST PERSONAL RETREAT?

If you’re scratching your head trying to remember your last retreat, it was probably too long ago. Leaders in every capacity face challenges that require wisdom and deplete reserves. Regularly getting away for focused time with God is a Christ-like habit worth forming. I was five or six years into full-time ministry when the fabric […]

PAID RETREAT DAYS FOR YOUR STAFF

As relentless as leadership demands are, wise leaders follow Jesus’ example of “walking away from it all” to be with their Father. Whether it’s several days at the beginning or end of the year, a day each quarter, or something else – a rhythm of spiritual refueling and retooling is vital to healthy leadership. Let’s […]
