Principles of Godly Leadership

This week we dive into the life of arguably the greatest leader of the Old Testament: Moses. As we look at his life and his leadership, we examine six principles of Godly leadership for us to apply in both our lives and ministry.

1) Be propelled by vision [Exodus 3:1-15, Deuteronomy]. 2) Spend regular time in prayer [Psalm 90]. 3) Care more about the people you’re leading than your position [Exodus 32, Numbers 12]. 4) Always be teachable [Exodus 18:17-23]. 5) Don’t try to do it on your own [Exodus 18:17-23]. 6) Never give up [Deuteronomy 34:5].
