PERSONAL MISSION/VISION STATEMENT

In my ministry with The Leadership Institute, my vision is to see churches, seminaries, mission agencies, and marketplace organizations transformed so that…

            deep unhurried intimacy with Christ,
            vulnerable communities of compassion, and
            Spirit-empowered mission in the world

…become central to leaders and followers in these organizational settings. We believe this will require a reversal of the collapse of space and time embedded in significant portions of these structures, which can only be accomplished by the in-breaking of God’s reign.

My mission is to help rise up a generation of Christian leaders who listen to God, embody His character and extend His kingdom in their spheres of influence. Our mission’s goal is the imitation of Jesus’ patterns, not the hurried leadership patterns that dominate culture and church in which the collapse of space and time has suffocated communion with God and community with one another.
