12 Tweetable Principles in Ministry Leadership

Do you find these principles helpful for your ministry? (iStock photo)

1. The change you most need to initiate will often be the hardest change to make.

2. The loss of power will always be a key objection to change.

3. People aren’t always taking this as seriously as you are. Remember, you aren’t taking their work as serious as they do either.

4. All criticism stings, some more than others. Even when you need to hear it ... it hurts.

5. Being a bad fit for the team doesn’t make someone a bad person.

6. The power of ministry is never limited when it comes from the right source.

7. Some of your greatest partners in ministry are often silent partners. When you need them most, God will reveal them.

8. Your greatest fear will likely be in an area where God can most use you.

9. Just because it is the right thing to do is no indication that everyone is going to love it.

10. You build greater loyalty in people when you share a common vision, not when you share common personalities.

11. People naturally resist what they can’t understand. That makes casting vision continually a premier function of leadership.

12. You limit what you control.
