Leadership

Leadership--Just as there are evangelists but all are called to make disciples, so there is a gift of leadership, though all are called to lead through the Spiritual gifts which they have been given.  This gift equips one to influence others in such a way that they willingly follow this person, often by painting a vision of the ministry or project. An example of leading through the gift of Leadership would be initiating an annual mission trip and inspiring others to participate in this ministry (Acts 18:18).

Testimony/Example of How People Have Used This Gift:

Cynthia, administrative assistant at a bank, recently re-married, mother of three grown children--“One way I have been able to lead is to start book talks that help draw believers and non-believers together.  A group of teachers at our Christian school got together to discuss a book. We loved it, so we picked another book and decided to meet again.  After six months, my husband transferred to another state. I looked for ways to bond with the women and decided to host my own Book Talk in my home. I mentioned it to four ladies and asked them to tell four ladies. I told them the name of the book and made sure it was one that they could find at the library.

I also helped start a class, and I developed some close relationships with two of the college girls. We meet for coffee, and we discuss our lives, our loves, and our walk with God. I find that they are eager listeners, so I have to be very careful about what I say and how I live my life. When they see that you live honestly and with authenticity, then they will give your words more credit. When you ask them to join with you in an activity or study, they are eager to participate.”
