Lots of new things quickly developing here at Grace and I look forward to what this next chapter in our life will become. One of the things we’ve realized is that leadership is key and as we move ahead developing leaders at every level will be critical. I also realize that many people don’t think of themselves as leaders. And as we talked about in Wednesday’s blog post: Leadership is about influence and we all have varying degrees of influence on others.
So, next Thursday, March 3rd will be our first ever “open invitation” LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY. The thinking is this: we want to gather every leader at Grace, from children’s ministry teachers to adult small group leaders; from head ushers to Catalyst table leaders, from worship leaders to coffee shop team leaders- to gather and share together. We ALSO want to invite any aspiring leaders – we have a large population of college students, 20-somethings and others who could see themselves eventually stepping forward into a role of influence.
