4 C’s of Spiritual Leadership

Short list to see how we’re doing as Christian leaders and to see if one is ready for Christian leaders. 4 C’s taken from Mike Breen‘s Missional Community Field Guideon who can lead a Missional Community. Questions are from our Bridge Church team briefing today as we “spurred one another on to love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24). Take the test:

  • Character: Am I following through with my promises? Am I being as honest as I can about my abilities? Am I living out of a commitment to Christ? Am I overcoming sin & insecurities through Christ? I am accountability to ________ & ________ & ________. How can we hone our character?
  • Competency: Am I able to consistently stay on ministry objectives? What is a win for me? What am I learning through the outcomes of my endeavors? Am I living out of a clear sense of mission & vision? I’m motivated by ____________. How can we become more competent in our roles?
  • Chemistry: Am I working out of my greatest strengths? Am I working with the place & people that I’m best suited to influence? Am I able to serve the Lord with gladness and maintain joy in my work? Am I working out my unique calling & gifting? I feel I am at my best when ___________. I feel our team is strongest when ___________. How can we strengthen our chemistry?
  • Capacity: Am I a leader worth following? Can I say to those around me, “follow me as I follow Christ?” What is the measure of my influence?
