My women’s ministry leadership journey began in the early 80’s. Very few churches were beginning to explore the idea of a ministry to engage, disciple, and mentor women through the local church. As a result, I was left with very few options and examples of what this type of ministry should look like.
Spurred by a passion to see women follow Christ, embrace His Word, and live in the overcoming power of the Holy Spirit, I began a quest to research and seek out every resource; human and printed to learn what I could about beginning this ministry which God had laid on my heart. I led the women in our church to start “women’s ministry”, before we even knew what to call it.
A leader needs to be a life-long learner.
A major part of learning is asking questions. As a life coach for Women in Leadership, I ask a lot of questions. As I meet other leaders, I ask questions.
Here’s what I want to know.
Do you have a plan to intentionally develop yourself as a leader?
Do you have a plan to intentionally develop others into leaders?
Describe the process for developing a vision and mission for your organization.
What book has had the greatest impact on your understanding of ministry leadership?
What blogs do you read on a regular basis?
What other arenas of leadership do you look to learn from?
