Leadership

 

  • “God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out when you have faith that God is speaking through you. If your gift is that of serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, do a good job of teaching. If your gift is to encourage others, do it! If you have money, share it generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.” — Romans 12: 6-8 NLT

God has given each and every one of us spiritual gifts. It is then our responsibility to use those gifts that God has given us to serve. One of the Gifts that God gives is that of leadership. At Grace FMC, one of the committees we have is call the Nominating committee. The responsibility of this committee is to prayerfully seek out and nominate those who they feel show the ability to be leaders in the church. To seek out those who can head the different committees withing the church along with the delegates to represent the local church to the conference. Leadership is not something to go into lightly, but it is also something that should not be ignored if God is leading that way.  If asked about leadership, do not dismiss it. Instead, pray about it and open yourself up to what God wants in your life.
