Some of the most exciting and influential moments of my life were when I was just out of school. During these years it seemed as though I was embarking on the greatest adventure of my life….and I was! I was fortunate at the time to get involved in a church that took a chance on me. The church leaders saw my potential and I was able to grow in one of the greatest areas of my life: Leadership.
Some of my greatest leadership development came from these exciting years all because someone believed in me and I took a chance. These influential ministry leaders gave me an opportunity and let me build on my strengths through serving on a team in a church setting, leading others, and encouraging me to make strides spiritually.
However, it wasn’t just because of the great leadership that surrounded me that I was able to develop skills I didn’t know I had, it was also because, well, I went for it!! I had little experience working in a church or leading others, at least that’s what I thought. The point is I never would have known what I had to offer if I didn’t just go for it. Sometimes just being the one who steps out and says “I’ll do it” makes you the leader.
In Matthew 14 Jesus meets the disciples out on the water. They are afraid, but Peter is the one who just goes for it. He asks Jesus to call him to Himself. So Jesus calls out for Peter to walk out on the water to meet Him. Peter is fearful, but he just goes for it. He takes a risk and gets out of the boat to walk towards his Lord. When he loses his step along the way Jesus holds out his hand a gives Peter the courage to continue. Together Peter and Jesus would carry out Christ’s ministry together over the next 3 years.
In the same way you don’t know you can do it, until you just go for it! So just go for it and apply for the Leadership Development Program. Take a risk, we believe in you. We are excited to see what happens when we just go for it together! If you think you may have what it takes then take a chance and click here.
