Which is more important – reliability or originality?
Xcel Church will not die from a lack of ideas. We are always looking at what we do, how we do it, changes that may be needed. We can create new programmes, events, change the website, blogs and media stuff and there is nothing wrong with that. In fact it’s important otherwise we lose our relevancy.
Being challenged though and you can certainly tell me if I am wrong. When it comes to leadership, in particular within the Church, people want reliability not just originality/creativity. Great ideas are one thing but being reliable – which includes being trustworthy, loyal, consistent and honest as a leader, these should always be the most important aspects of our role.
Last week in our quick leadership session at Darlington someone commented about the unity within the leadership at Xcel and how much that influenced them in establishing themselves in Xcel Church. That tells me we demonstrate both aspects.
You want to be a leader. Be more than just ideas…become a person of reliability.
Leadership in Church is not so much about what you do…it’s more about who you are as a person. That’s what people buy in to.
