Three small group coaches agreed to spend an hour (6:30am no less) every Saturday morning for the summer to craft our strategy for neighborhood small groups. These are gifted leaders - I mean they really demonstrate the spiritual gift of leadership in their lives. Today we talked about what it means to be "invested" as a coach. Here were some of their thoughts:
- Taking ownership of our spiritual journey
- Offering God our leadership gift to be used for the kingdom
- Consistency in spite of ups and downs of ministry
- Recognizing that God is at work, and I may be one of the tools He intends to use
We had a rich discussion about Matthew 25 the parable of the talents. We agreed that God values our investment - our willingness to put to use what he has given us. While we are responsible for the investment, God is responsible for the return.
I am full of anticipation of what God intends to do through these three invested leaders. Stay tuned...
