In the end, the people in charge of the programs remained stagnant in spiritual growth and relied on their status as leader of the program to replace their status in the sight of God. One of the major problems with this concept is that members in the church that are spending the majority of their time working in programs burn out before and the church fail at developing their Christian maturity. The book discuss how most churches fill gaps instead of training new members so that they are able to feel more a part of the universal church. When churches fill gaps, they continue the cycle of using people for programs until they burnout. The local church has been placed ahead of what God’s purpose is for us.
Keeping the church as one body of christ means he is a follower of Jesus and will look after us. When he shows that the church is still holy it impacts my faith because it means I could impact the church and keep it holy and become closer to God because of keeping the church clean and holy just as Pope Francis did. Another reason why the Pope impacts my faith is that the Pope doesn’t only just stay in one place, he takes care of all the churches and visited many churches around the world to keep the churches united and together as one body of christ. The Pope helps me to understand that the meaning of helping others and doing something right isn’t for satisfactory it is for the good of others. He shows me this when he helps the people that are in need and need more help than us.

At my church as well as in my celebrate recovery meeting I serve as a leader both for my achievements and my natural ability to lead, even if I doubt my abilities. I perceive the larger picture and fill in the details to achieve the goal and assist people to reach the goal. I am also incredibly motivated and determined to achieve and to impart people with what I never received and accepting them where they are, not where I believe they should be, which translates into being everyone’s personal secret keeper since I seldom judge. It does happen, however, I find ways around that judgement and realize the person 's pain and possibly the reason why they act the way they
No matter what their rank is, respect goes a long way. There needs to be mutual respect in order to work together. We do not need to like each other but there needs to be respect. Once I understand their problem, I can commit myself and reassure him that I will do everything I can so the problem is resolved as soon as the system allows me. Once the Soldier sees that you are genuinely trying to help them, trust will come into play and in the future, this Soldier will trust that I will do what I need to do in order to help him/her with the problem.
Introduction Team leadership encompasses many things. It may seem like a simple and small task, but in a real sense, it is complex and comes with responsibilities, and commonly, it determines the success of any team or a group. However, the value of teamwork should not be overemphasized considering that all organizations need individuals and personnel who are willing to share ideas, listen to others and contribute to the problem solving of any given group or a company. Team leaders should have the ability, authority, and power to analyze data and information with a team of people with a common aim and objective as well as issues. The leader should understand the dynamic patterns, the connections and relations between paramount factors in these objectives, aims and issues that help in the analysis process.
In the book authored by, Hugh Whelchel, How then Should We Work? The author discusses how Christians should work in all avenues while serving God. How their work and the manner in which they perceive their job/career in scripture has a rich biblical meaning. The issue this paper will focus on is a key theme in Christians idea of work along with how this vocational calling affects the secular workforce. Furthermore, how the concept of vocational calling influences the individual’s psychological well-being for both the Christian viewpoint and the secular perspective and how career counselors can aid in facilitating an environment where they can educate people in order to help them find their gifts.
This type of leader is always looking for areas to serve and always projects the benefits and interest of followers and customers above their self-desired interest and often prefer to share their authority and superiority with the people they are leading (Greenleaf, 1977). Servant leaders often view themselves as less important and focuses on his followers as the main persons, and always ensures that resources and assets from the organization are given to followers to perform their functions does not expect expecting to be appreciated (Smith et al., 2004). The servant leadership according to Greenleaf (1970), pointed out that the process of caring for other people above self is the foundation on which decent organizations and societies are built. Researchers have also viewed the servant leadership model as an upturn hierarchical pyramid in as such that followers are placed at the top of the pyramid and the servant leaders placed at the bottom all in the sole aim to serve while focusing on the achievement of goals for the organization. The servant leadership model has some distinctive characteristics, they are; a.
Apostle Paul said in 1Co 11:1(KJV) “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” Christians are instructed in the Bible not to conform to the world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Rom. 12:2). By staying in the Word of God, we are less likely to get caught up in the opinions of others. We are also called to exhibit self-control in every area of our lives especially when it comes to our impulses and instant gratification. Starting our day off prayerfully and devoting time to our Lord and Savior and allowing Him to plan our day for us will also help us to not give an audience to Satan and his cohorts.
I think we should use it in everyday life by being good to others and doing good deeds because you never know when something good could happen to you. God always works in mysterious ways and i’ve found that a lot of times when you’ve did good things, he repays you for that. A lot of people have memories of how we treated them and that influences how they treat us, so it’s important for us to always be kind to others-especially if they’re kind to you. We should all work on being selfless and polite to others so we can be repaid for the good that we’ve
