Current Course

This month we start a new core course Strategic Planning and Decision-making and our text: Executive Values by Kurt Senske. Senske demonstrates how Christian values support long term organizational success. This original and practical guide provides Christian leaders with a game plan for Christ-centered leadership that stresses the development of a healthy organizational culture, values-based strategic planning, mentoring, and balancing professional and personal life. The staff will learn how to add lasting value to the ministry, employees, students, donors and to society at large.

Your first post will be up on the forum by Monday, August 15th.

Core Courses

Our next core course is Ministry Development and our text: From Dream to Reality. dream to reality book coverWe’ll read a little of the history of TC Southeast as Dr. Jerry Nance shares the early years of developing the ministry. This book reveals the principles that evolved during the building years of the organization. You’ll learn principles such as:

  • The leader must hear from God
  • Pray Hard, Work Hard, Then Pray God Blesses Your Work
  • Cherish and Celebrate Victories along the Way
  • You Can Fund Your Vision
  • Learn to Laugh and much more…

You can see your dream become a reality as you apply these principles and as you stay faithful to the dream in your heart. Don’t quit short of what God has put in your heart to accomplish. God has a master plan for your life and He has endowed you with the gifts and talents to accomplish what He has called you to do.

Your first post will be up on the forum Monday, April 18th. You’ll make an initial post and respond to someone’s post.

Knowing What to Do and Doing It are Two Different Things

Knowing What to Do and Doing It are Two Different Things:Bringing your goals from “the Heavens” to “the Earth”

Please read the following excerpt from Lee Cockerell’s book, Time Management Magic:

How do you feel at the end of a day when you had ten things to get done and you didn’t do any of them, or most of them?  Not very good, right? And how do you feel if you continue to not get important things done day after day and week after week?  This is not a trick question. The answer is simple. You feel depressed, distressed and just plain awful.  And as we know from medical experiments, those feelings are very bad for your health.

Now ask yourself this: How do you feel on a day when you have a lot to do and you do it all?  When you get done all the things that need to be done? Again, this is not a trick question. You feel great, don’t you?  You feel happy.  You feel confident. And perhaps most importantly of all, you feel ready and able to take on more.

Those last four, underlined sentences- look at them again.  That is my prayer for each one of you- to feel great, happy, confident and ready.  You are saying to yourself, “Yes, but he doesn’t know my typical day and my typical to-do list!”  Just read on, my friend.

Cockerell goes on to say this: Knowing what to do and doing it are two different things.  That may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t live as though it’s obvious.  They know what they should be doing, but they don’t have a system, a set of habits or a solid routine for getting those things done…

Do you have a system set in place to make the most of your time? What system are you using to accomplish your professional and personal goals? Here are some suggestions:time_management_intro_diagram

  1. Ever-Present. Have your goals always before you (3-5 goals)
  2. Plan. Every day, etch out some time to plan your next day.
  3. Be purposeful. In your planning for the day, look at your goals carefully, and write micro-goals that get you a step closer to your big goals. For example, if your goal is to have twenty new donors by the end of the year, your day should have at least one call to a potential donor or a coffee meeting with them or a packet of information sent in the mail to them.
  4. Process. Every day, look at how you did. Celebrate or re-evaluate.
  5. Re-Play. Hit the re-play button every day and do it again.

It’s not very glamorous or cutting edge but it really works. You have 24 hours in a day.  Be consistent and intentional.  Those days will turn into weeks, the weeks into months and the months into years.  If you have lived your days consistent and intentional, you will be amazed at all you will accomplish for God’s Kingdom- it will happen one day at a time.

Revolutionized Leadership Webinar

Emerging LEaders PRogram

As we look to the end of a year and the beginning of a new one, we oftentimes reflect on how the year went and what we achieved with the intention of making resolutions next year.

This month, we looked at a very practical way in which we can assess what’s important to us, dream about our future and make the necessary steps towards becoming who God created us to be. I want to encourage you to watch this webinar and follow the steps to create your personal life plan; do your personal Wheel of Life and create your life plan.
