Today we had our second “young leaders meeting” with our Senior Pastor, Brad Powell. Every two months I sit with 15-ish other young leaders from NorthRidge and we glean wisdom from Brad…as well as talk about the things that we’re dealing with. Truthfully, I really am enjoying it.
One thing stuck out today. Loyalty. Being faithful to the organization you are working for. We concluded that many young leaders want the success that a “seasoned point leader” often experiences. However, we are not willing to follow someone (learning along the way) in order to get there. I suppose it’s our “fast-food” mentality.
Brad discussed how Joshua was loyal to Moses. Even though they were two different leaders…Moses was the leader, and Joshua was following. Some questions I pondered…
What can I learn from the leader I’m following? In what areas can I become more obedient to my leader?
