With the steward leader model, I have found a surprising and rewarding system for managing the diverse resources under my care for God’s purposes. - Sara Marlin
By Sara Nagelvoort Marlin. Last year I joined a Christian ministry for the first time in my career, having spent more than twenty years in corporate marketing environments. Among my early observations was what seemed to be the “de rigueur” concept in Christian ministry: steward leadership.

By R. Scott Rodin. I have just returned from teaching twenty-five students at Asian Theological Seminary in Manila on the Theology and Practice of the Steward Leader. I came away amazed and humbled by how powerfully the Holy Spirit worked in them during our days together.

Be a wise steward and register early! Great savings on the leadership training event of they year!
In 2016 Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) celebrates 40 years of equipping and uniting leaders to transform the world for Christ. The theme of the Outcomes Conference: CLA Dallas 2016 is “Perspectives.”That perspective is about more than CLA's journey, it is about where we as Christian leaders ...

Most leaders stay way too long in their roles. They don’t pass the baton early enough, when things are fresh. If they wait until the momentum is gone, and they’re on the downhill side of ministry, then it makes it almost impossible for the successor to succeed. The leader should go out right at his zenith, because then as he steps, he’s not stepping away from something, he’s now in a position to step into something.

Is it time for you to pass the baton?
An Interview with Tom Mullins. After more than 20 years as pastor of Christ Fellowship Church in South Florida, the church he founded and grew to a multisite church of more than 40000 people meeting on seven campuses around South Florida and online around the world, Tom Mullins passed the baton ...

Love and affiliation between people is a natural taming mechanism. When a person in power feels love or a type of affiliation with a person, group, or population that person tends not to use their power in hurtful ways against those people. At times, love can fail to promote the good use of power, especially when we as leaders are hurt or betrayed by those under our care.
 
~ Howard Rich
By Howard Rich. Have you ever known someone who let power or position go to his or her head? I'll bet it was hard for you to follow or respect that leader. Power is an essential force in human relations that can be used for good or evil, but to be a benevolent force it must be tamed; therefore, ...

A mentor can be a person who acts as an adviser to a new leader, but mentorship can also be a tremendous blessing to a seasoned leader. And I am the perfect example. - Cindy Hopkins
By Cindy Hopkins. “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” -Prov. 11:25. When Susan was hired as the executive director of her pregnancy center in 2006, she knew the calling was strong, and it was confirmed by the confidence that the board seemed to have in ...

Everything comes from God – and God alone. To merely make a logical choice to ‘think and act differently’ will not change anything. The change can only come as I daily die, and place Him on the throne of my heart…as I surrender ownership. - Mark Leavell

"Not so among you."
~ Jesus ,laying out his leadership mandate.
By Jeremy Kingsley. I suspect that the biggest factor, however, is a growing awareness that it works—and that it leaves everyone involved better off than zero-sum business philosophies where the winners end up on top and the losers don't matter. At its heart, servant leadership is based on the ...

Leader developers, like leaders, come in many style, not just one. Find yours. Be intentional. It’s our watch.
~ +Andrea Buczynski 
By Andrea Buczynski. Every leader has something to offer the next generation. Two different colleagues come to mind, neither of who would say they develop others. One, a superior vision caster and networker, put his thoughts together on casting vision in a short video. He then created an example ...

Introduction
Living to serve, following Jesus, & loving others in the unforced rhythms of grace. 
 
I married to my beloved, Dale. We delight in our daughter Zoe, her husband Matt and our grandson, Eastyn. There is joy unspeakable that comes as we watch God's hand on their lives. 

Dale and I share a crazy love the orphans in Jeremie, Haiti. Through our church, Long Hollow Baptist and in partnership with the Global Orphan Project and El Shaddai Ministries, we are compelled by love to go and serve the orphans there often. Today we find ourselves in the process of adopting one of them.

As president and CEO of The Christian Leadership Alliance, I serve an organization committed to equip and unite leaders to reach the world for Christ. We train them to think biblically and lead effectively as faithful stewards. Our vision is to see every Christian in leadership empowered for excellence to the glory of God. 

I celebrate daily being born for such a time as this and embrace how technology enables God's people to be His light online. Want to learn more? Visit me at @stickyjesus. Discover what it means to #LiveSticky #All4Him.
 
His dominion is an eternal dominion; His kingdom endures from generation to generation.
