Encourage young men to use good judgment. Always set an example by doing good things. When you teach, be an example of moral purity and dignity. ~ Titus 2:6-7, NOG
I was talking with a colleague today, telling her that I publish these leadership posts every Tuesday and Thursday. I explained that this is, in part, a means of investing in the next generation of leaders. To grow those up-and-coming in the area of serving the special needs community, we who are leaders now need to be deliberate. This means we need to be intentional in screening volunteers, watching for those who show good potential, investing time in them, and allowing them access to work alongside us. Verbalizing our mindset as we make decisions or direct ministry vision will help emerging leaders to develop those thinking skills for themselves.
What are you doing to pour into those who are up-and-coming? If you are not making this a part of your weekly or monthly schedule, make some time for it now, lest the work God has you doing stops when you do.
