Coaching Church Leaders To Navigate
“Congratulations, you are the leader now. Go make it work!”
Ever heard those words? All leaders share this “baptism by fire.” The first time you were asked to lead in a church setting, you had probably never done that before. It was your first test. So congratulations! You must have done something right, because you’re still in the game. And now, you’re trying to figure out how to do the next thing right. Right?
The most important truth that we’ve discovered about leadership went something like this: “All leaders are learners. If you are still learning, then you are still qualified to lead. Whenever you stop learning, you stop leading. The reality is that you cannot lead someone farther than you’ve been able to go yourself. Once they pass you by, they become the real leader.”
I’ve spent the last thirty years of my life in leadership roles, studying high-impact leaders, and reading every book I could find on the subject. If you have a group of leaders in your church, and precious little is done to encourage and equip them, “Yikes!” Allow Briar Patch Consulting to help you make coaching church leaders a priority. When leaders are not equipped, something will happen in the near future that you won’t like. Whoever is in charge of the rudder, make sure they plan to avoid this iceberg.
Leaders don’t require you to do much for them in order to feel appreciated or believe that what they do really matters. But whoever has the responsibility of watching over the leaders should surpass what little expectations they have and offer them something great. Briar Patch Consulting conducts THRIVE conferences and retreats for established and emerging church leaders. We can do this on your church campus, or better yet, splurge. Schedule a retreat. Make it a day and plan lots of fun.
