Ideas that spark character, calling, and vision
While the calling of ministry is important, the building of it is crucial. Vision is easy to see in the supernatural realm, but establishing it to be seen in the natural is an ordered process set by God and revealed in His Word. Not only is it imperative to take steps concerning order, these steps reflect the personal growth of the leader. Leadership must be prepared to grow in character and expertise, while maintaining a teachable spirit. We must understand God's structures include our individual growth, as we learn to respond and act the right way. It streams down to grow others involved in our ministry operations as well. We can setup the natural aspects from bylaws, sound, filings, accounting, marketing, and more, but the principles of leadership are the basis for success with God and man.
Our Ministry Mastery course is specifically designed to teach leaders the required Biblical structures to fulfill the vision and calling of ministry. Leadership growth is not attained overnight it is developed as we operate with a true heart motive towards God. This is revealed in the Spiritual and the natural ways we live our lives. We grow as we gain experience and apply the Biblical principles to our lives.
