I’ve been skimming through this book someone at Conclave gave me called 99 thoughts on Leading Well. There is one part that really got me:
Ministries always take on the personalities of their leaders. If you want your ministry to be a place where people study the Bible, then be diligent in your study of the Scriptures. Ministries with a focus on outreach must have a leader who is willing to step out and model what outreach looks like. Be a model for your ministry and don’t ask people to do something that you aren’t first willing to model.
