The days of our lives are structured around cycles of work, eating, family and recreation times. Any of these activities can become boring if we don't strive to find something interesting or enjoyable about them. The objective in going to church is to seek to build our relationship with God and others. I believe that if my church community takes steps forward in these resolutions it can bring a positive upraise in the attendance at CMC. Although I may not know some of the members that consist of this church, but I can also say that each and every member is apart of my family.
Churches need to go beyond just talking about social justice issues. Instead they need to get involved by doing mission trips, presentations, making flyers and initiating change starting with the world around them. We as a church and community have to be the voice for those who do not have a voice in today’s world. We have to inspire others to want to make a change and we have the power make a difference, it just takes one act and we can reach goals of stopping social injustice. Prayer really does make a difference, because with God on our side we can achieve anything.
People who have decide that they want some support in their lives need to be sure that they are working with someone who is honest and trustworthy, can keep confidences and is committed to working in their best interest. 1.3 Explain why it is important to observe and individual's reactions when communicating with them : It is important to watch body language because we will be able to see if they understand what has been said to them and also if the service user is talking to us, they could be saying one thing but the body language is saying something different i.e. the service user
LEADERSHIP AUDIT ANALYSIS 1 __________________ A Paper Presented to Dr. David Nemitz Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary __________________ In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Course CLED 510 Biblical Foundations of Christian Leadership B 06 __________________ By Shervanne Gatson firstname.lastname@example.org 10 June 2011 INTRODUCTION Over the years, I have been fortunate to study many leadership styles from the leaders I have been under. There were a few leaders that were exceptional in their leadership, while other fell flat. A good leader is first a servant. You cannot lead if first you do not know how to serve. There are several aspects that make up a good Christian leader.
When train people I take the time they need to understand a concept. When making commitments I follow through on tasks. These are important skills in leadership because this encourages staff to trust. I continue to be a trusted leader and co-worker in my role. The next habit that scored high on my assessment was that of beginning with the end in mind.
The secular image of `charismatic' is an over bloated ego but in the world of church is a gifted leader in the Holy Spirit. Another consistent method used throughout the book is comparing leaders of yesterday with today. It appears that the risk takers of yesterday have become the conservative non-risk takers of today - hence the title Leadership next. He continues in chapter two provoking the reader that leadership styles must change. Gibbs covers three areas that are `signs' to the `times' we live in.
It is with great importance that I continue to grow and learn as I walk my spiritual path. Attaining all that I possibly can through my education and being able to be a vessel to assist others. I must strengthen my theological background as I continue with life, this is necessary for me if I want to be a good shepherd and counselor. God has placed me at this point for a reason, and I believe that is to grow closer to Him. * Action If I was speaking with a friend, I would most definitely tell them to keep God at the forefront of their lives.
PRACTICAL APPLICATION 1. Give practical application to Dr. Crabb’s material as relates to the utility for the overall discipline of counseling and the specific potential influence upon your life and ministry. Dr. Crabb’s theory is one that can be of great use to my life and ministry. First, the author gives great information on developing an effective approach to counseling others in a time of need. He makes a wonderful point in establishing the fact that this is not a one size fits all field, but one that should be tailored to your client.
I believe in the faith of the Lord and that I will have eternal life. I believe that it impacts me in the way that I run into troubles in my life and the faith of higher power to assist me through it and give me strength to continue on to challenge more battles and triumphs along the way. My personal worldview gives me the emphasis to encourage others to choose a faith and a worldview plan to follow and guide them and help them through their lives. In one aspect I choose to be a teacher of Special Education children. I enjoy the fact that learning in a Christian aspect gives me more of an emphasis on how to have a more in depth understanding of learning the knowledge based behind their disabilities.
A sign-up sheet can be utilized with the the emphasis that people need to not see it as just another thing to do but will be intentional in praying. The purpose of this team will be to pray for the needs of the church. This will in turn revitalize the church. In What Every Pastor Should Know it reads, “Praying for others is a great way to enhance the spiritual maturity of your corporate body and individual members” (McIntosh, et al. 234).
