Presentation Transcript

  1. If you want to change the world, focus on leaders. If you want to change leaders, focus on them when they’re young.

  2. Now Try This Discuss: How is this activity like or unlike how we do our children’s ministry? How are teams more effective but also more difficult?

  3. The Problem • Most church “leaders” are not gifted in leading (92% Barna)

  4. Empower Others

  5. Ministry Madness • Why Add When You Can Multiply? • If it’s going to be, it’s up to “we.”

  6. Defining Leadership • Leadership is the process of helping people accomplish together, what they could not as individuals. • Leaders are those who get leadership going.

  7. No Mo’ Mo! Adding leads to burnout and frustration; multiplication results in results (Exodus 18)

  8. WDJD • 1. Give up possessiveness (It’s not your ministry!) • 2. Give up insecurities (Let go my ego.) • 3. Give up need for limelight (Be honest about end-user strokes.)

  9. WDJD • 4. Give up need for control/ micro-managing kills team spirit; is a poor substitute for lousy leading: • * Recruit better • * Train better • * Motivate better

  10. 3 Strategies • Addition: do a lot of the ministry yourself • Multiply: lead a team of doers/ equip ministers • Exponential: become a developer of leaders of teams

  11. Create a Team Culture Training meetings • Get rid of your excuses: (Everyone’s too busy. No one shows up. I can’t ask for so much commitment) • Make them fun (a can’t-miss-event): Don’t under-estimate friendship. If you’re not a “fun” person than recruit them to emcee. Provide door-prizes, funny stories. Affirm, affirm, affirm

  12. Create a Team Culture Training meetings (cont’) • Make them empowering: Cast the vision (keep the big picture in mind). Give them skills beyond children’s ministry. Elevate your best practitioners to train others • Run them well: Stay on time. Prepare/rehearse. Follow up on absentees positively

  13. Lead Up • Know your pastor’s personality and preferences • Make it YOUR job to feed him/her info, updates, and praises • Invite your pastor to get involved (make him/her a hero) • Develop an advocate who is a gatekeeper to the pastor • Become invaluable: come w/ solutions and keep the mothership in mind

  14. Lead Laterally • Empower your peers (lay or paid) (Silo’s thrill, but they also kill.) • How can we help you? • Affirm: “Nice job!” • Hang time. • Play well with others

  15. The Problem • Most formal leadership training does not begin until ages 25-35 • Post primary character formation • Post formidable years of learning

  16. Think Higher Math • Exponential leadership: focus on developing new gen leader • Define leadership properly (not discipleship or service) • ID those most gifted to lead (SIS) FREE @ www.kidlead.com • Don’t minister out of fear (elitist, political correctness); Jesus didn’t • Develop and unleash your young leaders
