3. You don’t have to cast votes for everything. Some things can be decided upon readily by your team.
Don’t forget that there are instances when the crowd is not right. And in those times, they need a leader to direct them, to show them a new way of seeing and doing things. Vote-casting is often crucial when even your core team is divided with differing views about something.
4. Ask the Help of Other Leaders, If Needed.
Remember the 80/20 rule of managing and leading the Events Team I shared with you guys before? 80% of the duties and responsibilities goes to Events Team and 20% goes to Victory Group Leaders. You guys don’t have to do it all alone. Even YOU don’t have to do it all alone.
5. Expect differences and relational issues, but always do your best to resolve them whenever possible.
We have a lot of smart and opinionated people in our church so expect that there will be misunderstandings and conflicts along the way. Always try to give the benefit of the doubt to the other person. Maybe the other person knows something you don’t know or maybe you have blind spots you need to work on.
6. Your service must be driven by love for God and for His people.
Serving in the ministry can sometimes be overwhelming. Sometimes people forget the good things you did for them. Sometimes people may not give you credit for your hard work. Sometimes, you might feel that people don’t show if they appreciate you. When these things happen, serve anyway. Remember Who you are serving ultimately, and why you are serving.
Question: If you’re a tenured church ministry or volunteer work servant, how would you advice our new leader?
