CHURCH LEADERSHIP PAPER
The subject of my evaluation, let’s call him Tb, an interesting young brother; converted at an early and called to be in the service of the lord almost immediately. His background speaks greatly of the way we should all strive to instruct our children in methods of behavior and interaction with others . He serves as the Youth Pastor at the church where I currently attend. He oversees a group of approximately 45-50 young people from 12 years of age until early adulthood. This is a long span of years where being accountable , and totally transparent apparently pays …show more content…
The advice I would give is to always remain accessible to His Spirit …. all will work to your and the body(the church’s ) benefit.
4. Do you have a person philosophy (i.e. an agreed upon plan of action/policy/understood protocol) of how/when/where you confront sin in the lives of 1) co-ministers/co-leaders in your ministry, and 2) people to whom you minister? Are you able to provide a GENERAL (i.e. no names!) example of how this philosophy of confronting sin and was/was not followed by you within your ministry in the past? What was the outcome? . “ I generally look for patterns of behavior with my peers, understanding that we all are in need of correction or another. Gently at first I may say something to the person in private. Ministry is says “if your brother sins against you, go and rebuke him in private. If he listens to you, you have won your brother. Matthew 18:15 rarely has it continued beyond this stage. My plan of correction beyond this stage would be to 2)few on one confrontation… and beyond that #3)Church Leadership on one confrontation where he or she would be brought before Church leadership a deacon or elder to bring about correction. If that method failed, the person would have to be brought before the body as a whole, to inform all about what has occurred and his or her refusal to

Crabb describes a three tiered approach to biblical counseling within the church. The first being Level one counseling. This level of counseling is encouragement and should be conducted throughout the entire church congregation. The second being Level two counseling. This level is for exhortation, and should be conducted by individuals within the congregation that have a solid grasp on biblical principles and scripture. Thirdly is Level three counseling. This level is enlightenment, and should be conducted by individuals who can meet level one and level two requirements. Furthermore, they should have more formal training to assist the client with problems of greater

Dr. Larry Crabb’s book “Effective Biblical Counseling: A Model for Helping Caring Christians Become Capable Counselor” Crabb, (1977), this book models how counseling can be gracefully integrated into implementation of the local church. The Goal of Christian Counseling that Dr. Crabb states within his book Crabb, (1977), is “any approach to counseling that is truly biblical will work most effectively when carried out into the context of a local body of believers” (pg. 13). As Dr. Crabb states within his book that “The goal of biblical counseling is to promote Christian maturity, to help people enter into a richer experience of worship and a more effective life of service” (pg. 31), This allows them grow
Before defining an individual as a great leader, one must first understand the definition of leadership and the qualities that make a leader. According to businessdictionary.com, “leadership involves establishing a clear vision, sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly, providing the information, knowledge and methods to realize that vision, and coordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members and stakeholders.” The website goes on to say that “a leader is the one who steps up in times of crisis, and is able to think and act creatively in difficult situations. Unlike management, leadership cannot be taught, although it may be learned and enhanced through coaching or mentoring” (Leadership).
For this assignment the group that I observed was the Churches Touching Lives of Christ Bible study located at W Ave G Temple, TX 76504.The bible study group was small, it consisted of six adult group members in total. Each individual person had their own uniqueness about themselves and their contribution to the group. The leader of the group was a slender Asian male in his late forty’s who was well spoken and maintained order in the group while still delivering a short sermon to the group. Whenever a person would speak out of turn he would let them speak and when they were done he would publicly correct them and tell the other adult group members that they should wait their turn to speak and if they have a
Pastor Renfro, as he is known by those who have had the pleasure to meet him, defines servant leadership as “one of the many models of ministry, each of which describes how a particular minister understands his/her role and approach to ministry as a vocation, and a way of life.” Dr. John Renfro is currently senior chaplain at Conway Medical Center in Conway, South Carolina. He grew up in simple, rural South Carolina in Spartanburg County, and he benefitted from a family who had a personal deep connection with God. His simplistic beginning provides the anchor of stability in a turbulent world for his family and those whom he offers ministry. Pastor Renfro has felt that “ministry grows out of life, the life of an
The lessons I’ve received from transitioning through the church as a child, youth, and adult member have taught me a number of lessons; patience, reverence, and empathy are all traits I’ve strengthened, and they have undoubtably helped me through my high school career. Taught how to ask thoughtful questions, I’m unashamed of my curiosity. Our faith is not always one of direct answers— even our most devoted
Westside Baptist Church has been blessed to serve our community under the direction of Pastor Dale Ingersoll for the past twenty-seven years. After many years of faithful service, Pastor Dale had made the decision to retire from ministry and notified the church of his decision in December 2014.
As a Christian the best leadership structure for the body of believers we have was given to use by Jesus Christ. He taught us how to love (God with all our heart) and who to love (thy neighbor), which results in us being better leaders. Naturally, each church reads the same scripture but interprets it differently and has a different leadership style as a result of that. Three church’s constitutions in particular will be the subject of discussion. I will compare and contrast the leadership structures of the three, list positives and negatives, interpret what I see the preferred church leadership structure and interpret what the constitution reveals about each church.
Our organization, Christian Business Leaders (CBL), welcomes all majors and strives to bring students together under one common purpose: "To foster a Christ centered organization that encourages service through Christ and leadership in business." No matter the student 's major, he or she will take part in a business process, from creating a resume to interviewing for a job to working with executives in the corporate world. We believe that our Christian values should be incorporated into everything we do. Christian Business Leaders has been able to help students understand how to apply their values in the job search and work place. Our organization has hosted numerous business speakers, including high profile leaders, to talk about how they bring their own faith to the workplace. Some of these inspiring speakers have drawn audiences up to four times the number of CBL members, thus widening CBL’s impact on the ISU community. Some of the well known speakers include former Chicago Bears running back, Adrian Peterson, President and CEO of Marklund, Gil Fonger, President and founder of Today’s Growth Consultant, Ken Courtright, ISU basketball coach Dan Muller, and CEO of BroMenn Hospital, Colleen Kannaday.
In their book, Churches, Cultures and Leadership, Mark Lau Branson and Juan F. Martinez point out the perspective of “Practical Theology.” (Part 1, 39) They also explain the purpose of “Interpretive Leadership.” (133) Their stories helped me understand how the circumstances challenge church leaders. (Introduction, 19)
By way of brief summary, the case study I make reference to here concerns an incident that occurred while serving as a pastoral intern several months ago. I was asked by a friend and congregant to provide a ride home to a male congregant. This request stood at odds with my pastoral covenant and thus had to be refused. This mismatch of expectations and presumed lack of awareness on the part of the requesting congregant led to a somewhat awkward situation, which, after being resolved, was followed with a brief word of explanation to my friend. To maintain anonymity, throughout this paper I will use the designators “BC” to refer to my friend and “FL” to refer to the male congregant.
My Catholic School leadership experience stems from years of being involved in my diocese, first as a student, then as an employee and then as a mother who raised and educated three children in that diocese. I am a firm supporter of Catholic education as I have experienced the benefits that only a Christ centered learning environment can provide as a student, parent and educator.
Leaders are appointed to serve here on earth on behalf of Christ since Christ is the good and chief shepherd. Leaders should lead the believers based on how Christ related with the church when he was on earth. Shepherds had to feed the people of God and to protect them from predators. Churches today ought to do things how the New Testament churches did.
In Ephesians 4:11 (KJV), The Apostle Paul writes of the offices in the New Testament church which have been ordained by God for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the body of Christ. Pastors and teachers is a combined role of what the leader of the church in a growing ministry are called by God to perform.
