Leadership

Doing Work We Love

Almost two years ago, I came to work at Christian Women’s Leadership Center with a challenge to help create nine courses which would become part of our Leadership Certificate Program. I benefitted from the groundwork of a team of people who did the difficult work of researching and selecting the appropriate topics before I arrived. They did much of the hard work, and I reaped an opportunity to implement the plan. 

A Sense of Call to Leadership: When Knowing His Voice Matters

Being in a relationship indicates communication between two people. Imagine going to Facebook and changing your status to say that you are “in a relationship” when only one party agrees to those terms. You might expect some taunting or teasing for such a public declaration.

In a growing relationship with Christ, we should expect two-way communication. The Bible compares a relationship with Christ to the way a bride relates to a groom. Following Christ is a serious matter and indicates that both parties be involved intimately. Those in relationships know one another well.

Prayer as Work

Leadership by Christian women should look radically different than any other type of leadership, because Christian women understand the power of praying. Prayer may be the hardest work Christians do to lead effectively in a world that has moved away from God.

Minette Drumwright, in her book The Life that Prays, makes a case that prayer should be a strategy with two major purposes: “(1) to know God in Christ intimately, to love Him increasingly, and to become more like Him; and (2) to participate with Him in what He is doing in the world.”
