Marks of ‘Biblical Leadership:’
- The INTEGRITY to do the right thing;
- The RESOLVE to do things the right way;
- The HEART to do things for the right reasons; and
- The HUMILITY to acknowledge your errors and limitations along the way.
If you need to grow as a leader…
- Are you being a faithful FOLLOWER? (1 Corinthians 11:1)
- Do you have a MENTOR? And are you INVESTING in others?
- What will SUSTAIN you?
