Tuesday’s Thought – Bill Hybels and Vision

Bill Hybels is futurist and a visionary. I have incredible respect for this man and his leadership, influence, and kingdom vision. Here’s one of his stellar quotes from his talk at the 2014 Global Leadership Summit.

You can live and lead small, live and lead safe, live and lead selfishly, or you can pursue a grander vision

What vision are you pursuing?

Leadership Development for Midsize Communities

In this last session of my Midsize Groups Course on Ministry Grid, I introduce a reproducible leadership development system for midsize community group leaders. It’s a three-dimensional process: initial, ongoing, and practical.

Tuesday’s Thought – Brad Lomenick and Your Next Role

Catalyst has been a blessing to my development as a leader and I’m deeply grateful for the leadership that Brad Lomenick has brought to it. When I heard that Brad had written a book, The Catalyst Leader: 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker, I quickly added it to my “must read” list. Regretfully, it’s taken over a year for me to get to it, but once I opened it up, I gobbled it up in matter of days. I even live tweeted each chapter – you can check it out by going to my twitter account – @danielsangi.

Here is one of my favourite quotes from his book, The Catalyst Leader: 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker:

Act, lead, dream, create, and deliver based on the job or position you want next, not the job or position you have now. Step into that role before you ever have it. Demand perfection from yourself before anyone ever demands it of you.

How to Form a Missional Community through Midsize Groups

In the third session of my Midsize Groups Course on Ministry Grid, I explore how midsize, missional communities represent the kingdom of God to the world through integration, multiplication, discipleship, and mission.

Tuesday’s Thought – Mother Teresa and The Power of Teams

Mother Teresa doesn’t need an explanation – she is one of the greatest influencers of this past century.

Since I love leadership and the power of teams, this quote popped out to me:

You can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together we can do great things.

Let’s do great things by living in the areas of our strength and by working with one another!
