Welcome back Be the One family!
Pastor Steven here, I am so excited to go into the next part of our series on leadership, "See, Say, Show"
As you spend more time with Be the One's leadership team and staff, our hope is that you see us lead by example. Our culture at Be the One is very important to us.
We don’t want a ministry that runs down leadership.
We don’t want a staff that gossip about its people.
We don’t want a ministry that sees serving as a burden.
We don’t want a ministry that is dead, boring and lifeless.
When modeling the message we respond urgently to:
Inform you on what we SEE.
We want all of our leaders to see people, not just finish tasks.
While tasks are important, the only reason we do them is to keep relationships.
See the trash that needs to be emptied.
To lead by example we have to see what others don't.
Instruct you on how we SAY
We say it with love, hope, faith and clarity.
We say God’s truth! Not our truth.
Many are growing in their leadership. Our hope isn’t to try and offend people as we lead teams and train people.
How you say things matters. You can be right in concept and wrong in tone and the whole conversation be wrong.
When you’re with your boss, how you say it matters.
When you’re with your significant other, how you say it matters.
When you're at church, how you say it matters.
There will be a time we have to have challenging conversations. We want those moments seasoned with grace and mercy.
At Be the One, as you grow in leadership we will help you say it well so you can keep what you’re building.
Inspire you to SHOW others.
This is leading by example.
We show love, honor, generosity, consistency and courage.
Showing it is how we take the concepts and live out the culture.
Showing it is the high fives, hugs, and looking at people and not over them.
Jesus spent three years teaching his disciples how to lead by example. When he called each of them, he expected them to respond urgently to his calling and direction. He wanted to teach them how to see it, say it, and show the results of what He gave them. The process of leadership is more than instruction; it's leading by example.
Here's what I want to challenge you with: What do you see that you need to say? What conversations do you need to step into? Join us next week as we talk about Being Teachable! Love ya, Pastor Steven Sexton
