  • God Rules

    Devotionals | November 07, 2016

    Scripture repeatedly declares God’s sovereignty. This is His universe. He alone holds ultimate power and control over all that He has created. He is at work to weave together all the strands of history to achieve His purpose. As leaders who have been called to partner with Him, we are called to align ourselves with His goals and His method. Jesus clearly proclaimed that we are to follow His example of selflessly loving and serving others, orienting our lives and leadership according to the values of God’s kingdom rather than the values of this world.

  • How Big Is Your Heart

    Devotionals | November 04, 2016

    It can be easy for a person’s focus to shrink inward, to become so consumed with our own concerns that we forget how big God’s heart is. His heart encompasses the whole world. He desires to bring life-giving light and salvation to all, and He is at work to that end. As men and women who follow Jesus, God’s heart increasingly transforms the focus of our concerns and leadership. Ask God to enlarge your heart to see people as He sees them, and to show His love for others so that they might see Jesus.

    Elevate the Room

    Blog | Phyllis Hennecy Hendry | November 03, 2016

    I heard a sermon over a year ago that I am still thinking about today.  Erwin McManus, lead pastor at Mosaic, Los Angeles, CA, spoke on “Elevating the Room.”  The premise of his message was that a follower of Jesus should change the environment everywhere he/she goes. 

  • When in Doubt

    Devotionals | November 02, 2016

    Leading like Jesus doesn’t mean we always know what to do. Discerning the path forward frequently requires multiple considerations, some of which are not readily clear. Jesus modeled for His disciples a constant turning to the Father as He navigated the ups and downs of life. When He needed to select key leaders, He spent the night in prayer. After a long day of ministry, He stayed up late or woke up early to spend time with the Father. When in doubt, when pressure mounts, when you need to find a way forward, follow Jesus’ example, and turn to the Father.

  • Make Each Day Count

    Blog | Karen McGuire | November 01, 2016

    Do you feel that time goes by faster each year? Do you feel that you have too much to do on most days?

    Why is that?

    We all have the same hours in a day as Adam and Eve. It seems that 24 hours is all we get but our choice is what we do with those 24 hours.
