Equipping Others for Service

Two years ago, I posted this and it rings true today just as it did then. Leader, May it bless you as much as it did me. Let’s continue to serve.

If you are a leader, you will serve those you lead by equipping them to do their part in God’s plan.’ (Wilkes, G., p 189) These are words that jumped out at me as I read Gene Wilkes’Jesus on Leadership and I felt empowered by his words and I want to share some five steps he recommends.

  1. Encourage them to serve
  2. Qualify them to serve
  3. Understand their needs
  4. Instruct them; and
  5. Pray for them.

He says that these five steps will allow you as a leader to share your responsibility and authority… just like Jesus did.
