Practical Stuff for Church Leaders

Andy Stanley on Leadership

Andy launched Catalyst 2008 with a great talk on leadership. Quotable…

·         We want our leaders to have consistency between what they say and what they do.

·         At the end of the day, everyone is a volunteer. They can quit at any time.

·         Authenticity is a powerful leadership dynamic.

·         Nehemiah got mad and asked the leaders to stop over-charging the people. They immediately complied. Why? Because for 12 years, Nehemiah had been living an authentic life in front of them. He had moral authority.

·         As leaders, we must be the men and women who never carry into the future the hurt of the past.

·         Perhaps the boldest leadership move you could make is to get on your knees and let go of your hurts.

·         Men: If your wife feels like your church is your mistress, you are part of the problem you are trying to solve.

·         If your kids feel neglected because of your time at the church, you are part of the problem you are trying to solve.
