• Trusting God's Way

    Devotionals | February 19, 2018

    Scripture paints a picture of a God beyond human comprehension. He speaks the universe into being and is working all of history according to His plan. His highest value is love expressed in sacrificial service. He entered our world and goes before us even now. Will you dare to trust and follow Him today?

  • Personally Involved

    Devotionals | February 16, 2018

    Jesus’ perspective on leadership is eminently practical. If He saw someone in need, He met their need. Consider the man waiting to be healed beside the pool of Bethesda. Discerning that the man was willing to allow Jesus to help him, Jesus spoke directly to his need. When Jesus’ disciples initiated a theological discussion regarding a man’s blindness in John 9, Jesus was not content to leave the man blind when He had it in His power to heal him.

    Deepen Your Commitment to Listening

    Blog | Owen Phelps | February 15, 2018

    “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts...” (Hebrews 3:15)


    I was asked to consult for a multi-million dollar communications division of a national church. Its leader had come to the table only weeks before with impressive credentials in the private and NGO fields.

    He had accumulated a slew of prestigious awards. He had been brought on board in the midst of crisis. The very survival of the ministry depended on his decisive, sure-handed leadership.

  • The Face of Love

    Devotionals | February 14, 2018

    For an example of true love, simply look to Jesus and the cross. His life reveals what it looks like to put someone else’s interests before our own, to value others and their well-being to the extent that we choose to sacrificially serve them at their point of need. As God’s self-giving love transforms our hearts, reshapes our perspective and teaches us to love like He loves, we, too, are empowered to love and serve others for their good and God’s glory. Who is God calling you to love in Jesus’ name?

  • Use Me

    Devotionals | February 12, 2018

    Scripture reveals the unfolding story of God’s plan to redeem the world. From the beginning, His plan took shape in the lives of people. Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah, Esther, Mary, and countless others led the way. The Twelve, Paul, Barnabas, Priscilla and Aquila, Timothy, Jesus’ brothers James and Jude and thousands like them carried the message. Today, He looks to you and me to live into His plan. Will you lead with humility and God-grounded confidence? Will you let Him sweep you up into His story?

  • Those Closest to You

    Devotionals | February 09, 2018

    Leading like Jesus encompasses every aspect of our lives, from family and friends to co-workers and colleagues and people in our communities. Regardless of how wide our influence extends, our greatest opportunity to influence others is with those closest to us. Jesus prayerfully chose twelve to pour His life into. Who is part of the small circle of people in your daily life? Name them one by one. Ask the Lord to pour out His Spirit and to multiply your influence in their lives so that they, too, will lead like Jesus.

    What's My Leadership Bias?

    Blog | Megan Pacheco | February 08, 2018

    Terms that define the word bias include prejudice, partiality, favoritism, one-sidedness, leaning and tendency.

    We all have biases. They are major factors in our decision-making. Like an invisible force operating under the radar, our biases stealthily move to shape the way we influence and lead others, yet we don’t like to admit they even exist. Unfortunately, wherever bias rules unchecked, there is chaos, dissention, hurt and distrust. When bias is recognized and consciously set aside, however, unity, trust, forgiveness and commitment will flourish.
