The purpose of the rally is to encourage and retune our leaders. The rally helped me to recalibrate my own leadership. On Saturday morning all the small group leaders—including me—took a group leadership assessment. My highest score was “Prayer.” My lowest score was “Empower.” It was helpful to realize this. Vicki and I talked. We have five regular attenders in our group and two of them are our host couple. So we haven’t seen a lot of places to give away leadership just yet. But I realized, as we talked about things, that we could give away the snack coordinating to the other gal and that I could ask the host husband to coordinate our involvement with SeniorCare. He’s excited that our small group is helping with this nursing home ministry. Coordinating it is a small thing but it’s one less thing for me to think about. These are small but significant steps in retuning our leadership and our group.
Does your leadership need a tune up? Where is your leadership and small group strong—Praying, Reaching Out, Caring or Empowering? Where is it weak? What can you do to improve in the weak area?
