Leadership and the future
The future of the Church is only as secure as the next generation of leaders it is recruiting and training now.
We do not discover the future and we can’t predict the future with any certainty. We in fact create the future! The future is shaped by us in the present.
We do that by the visions of the future we imagine and the decisions we make now. The most strategic visions and decisions we make now are about the recruiting and training of leaders.
Three key roles of Christian elders are:
- To pass on the faith faithfully and truly to the next generation.
- To live the faith with integrity before the next generation
- To discover, encourage, prepare and make way for the next generation of leaders.
