Framework for Success: Your Organization and Leadership

First and foremost, effective leadership provides vision. You must have a vision for your ministry and make decisions every day which spur activities which lead you toward that vision.  A vision gives your ministry a tangible goal to work towards as it lives out its calling to serve the Lord. Leadership is vital in building a community around your cause which connects all your constituents: those who receive your services; those who do the work of your ministry; and those who provide the support for the continued flow of resources to your ministry.

Leadership Markers

  • Articulate a clear vision of where your ministry is going and what it will look like when you get there
  • Communicate that vision to every constituent of your ministry: staff, leadership, sponsors, donors, board, the public
  • Lead the development initiative personally without ambiguity or hesitation
  • Foster a culture of community which draws on the Bible as its connecting spiritual fiber, lending significance to every person in your ministry circle
  • Embrace and express the understanding that development is a vital part of your ministry
  • Communicate that vision to every constituent of your ministry: staff, leadership, sponsors, donors, board, the public
  • Acknowledge and embrace the responsibilities of the role of steward of God's work through the ministry
  • Establish specific, realistic, achievable, measurable goals with periodic milestones to measure progress

Key Questions About Leadership
