The leaders (1 Timothy 3:1-13 NCV) I am gathering are kingdom minded (Matthew 6:33), mission-driven (Acts 2:24), strategic thinking, get-it-done individuals (Philippians 2:20). They can rise above their specific circumstances and help others see the bigger picture of possibility (1 Corinthians 16:13). They are strong leaders but not overbearing (1 Peter 5:3). They are bold but gracious (2 Corinthians 3:12). They exude confidence without being arrogant (Proverbs 3:25-26). They can keep a calm head in the midst of chaos (Isaiah 7:4). They are tough-skinned enough to endure the criticisms, but tenderhearted enough to love the people regardless (2 Timothy 2:3). They not only lead the people but genuinely love them through the process (Romans 12:10). They have a proven track record in their respective areas of leadership that include recruiting others to assist in the ministry (2 Timothy 4:7). They are team players who can follow as well as lead.
The outreach leader will focus on creating events and ministries that will be
vehicles for planting the good news of the gospel. People need to see Jesus before
they will be interested in what He has to say.
Your primary function is evangelism, building bridges from the faith community into society.
