I had a great morning today. Although I was unable to be at Southbridge, I heard things went well people making decisions for Jesus and Jesus was exalted. I was at Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock Arkansas, the church that sent us out to plant Southbridge. Today, we celebrated their ten year anniversary of planting churches through their residency program at Fellowship Associates. In ten years they have planted over forty churches, from LA to Dubai. Praise the Lord.
One of the big reminders for me was a definition of leadership that was shared. Leadership is taking the initiative for the benefit of others. What a biblical definition of leadership. Jesus Christ took the initiative for our benefit (Phil 2:5-11), and that is the call on those of us who lead, to take the initiative for the benefit of others.
