POSTURE OF A LEADER
WHY IS A LEADER’S POSTURE IMPORTANT?
The effectiveness of a small group in helping people grow in their relationship with Jesus is connected to whether or not a leader’s posture is one of humility, teachability, curiosity and intentionality.
Your group members do not expect you to have all the answers. They do expect you to care about who they are and have a desire to help them to grow.
Humility is the result of a strong relationship with Jesus and understanding that ultimately he brings the growth and change we want for ourselves and others.
Teachability is a spirit that says, “I will constantly learn about myself, others, and God; so God can use me in new and different ways.”
Curiosity is a genuine interest and concern for others.
Intentionality is viewing each interaction in the group as an opportunity to invest in the lives of others and to grow as a child of God.
