We can learn the secret to effective Christian leadership by studying the life of the apostle Paul. After Paul’s conversion through a vision and hearing the voice of God, he spent three years in the Arabian wilderness to learn how to be a great leader.
How did Paul learn without any books or teachers around him?
He learned how to hear the voice of God, how to sense his heart and the Holy Spirit, how to be under power of the Holy Spirit and how to become a Spirit-anointed leader. This is the secret to effective Christian leadership.
The Example of Jesus
Studying the life of Jesus also provides insight into the secrets of effective church leadership. Jesus said,
“Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” – John 5:19 (NIV)
He was able to hear the voice of God and act on it.
At CLU we feel so strongly that the most effective Christian leaders are those who are able to hear the voice of God, and then act on what He is telling you to do. As such, the first class that we require of all our students is the course on hearing the voice of God, called Communion with God. In this 12 week class we teach practical applications for how to hear from God and respond to his call. We instruct on journaling and provide spiritual advisors to help you in your walk. We are so confident in the success of this course that we even offer a money back guarantee on the cost of the class!
