WHEELS DOWN! Leaderscape in 5 countries.

2022-03-30T11:04:29+11:005 November, 2015|Uncategorized|

Wheels down after a long 24-hour flight from Sydney, Australia. Heathrow,  grey and awakening at 6 am, is a familiar place now. As I feel us land, I am prepared and excited to again be ministering in Europe. Boarding my flight for Dublin after a brief stop in England, I'm looking forward to meeting with churches in both the north and south of the island, united in faith. It's filling me with great anticipation. Thinking through the ten weeks ahead, I again thank God silently for the opportunity to be involved with so many people who are outworking the call [...]

Kampala Kapers – Leaderscape in Uganda

Kampala Kapers! We've come to an area somewhere in a village on the outskirts of Kampala. It's a part of our Leaderscape 'developing world' work. A dirt floor and a marquee splattered with the typical red dust and mud of the area, holy in places as you look up towards its roof and see spindles of sunlight breaking through the canvas. But the 'holy - ness' isn't just physical. I find myself now sitting listening to Michael preach with a Ugandan interpreter. The young man doing this job is brilliant - a fresh faced kid with a dream to study [...]

Greener Pastures Syndrome – 5 Ways that God Speaks Clearly to Us!

Sometimes we are better to obey God in what appears to be a land of famine than to reposition ourselves.  The grass is not necessarily greener "on the other side"....It's greener where God chooses to bless & water it.. As believers in Jesus Christ, we are called to walk by faith & not by sight. Relying so heavily on our senses as we do, this often appears much more complex than God intended it to be. Just as the doctor examining an infant must rely on their vital signs, and the pilot flying in a storm must take heed to [...]

Prophetic Irony!

What do you do as a leader when your present reality is not yet resembling what's in your heart for the enterprise, non-profit or church which you are leading? Firstly: It's important to acknowledge that that's the way it's supposed to be! If a leader is entirely content with what's in their midst, I'd question whether either their vision is large enough. Or whether,  in a bid to maintain the comfort of the status quo, they are in denial about things that need to shift. Leaders must get comfortable with a certain degree of discontentment. Dear Leader, you are experiencing [...]

Delayed Gratification!

Those too lazy to plough in the right season will have no food at the harvest. Proverbs 20:4 NLT The life you are enjoying, or otherwise right now, is not so much the result of your current circumstances, as it is the product of seeds you have sown in your past. Though this is often a difficult reality check, and may indeed carry some disclaimers, it nonetheless can definitely breathe fresh hope into your future. The exceptions to this rule may include certain disasters and the unforeseen actions by third parties....... yet our responses to any of these are very [...]

Beware The Double Punch

2022-03-30T10:23:30+11:0031 October, 2014|Uncategorized|

"Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you.  He will be with you; He will neither fail you nor abandon you" - Deuteronomy 31:8 (NLT)   Listen up, leaders, and take note of the enemy’s double-punch strategy! The Word here warns us to be alert to fear and discouragement.  Fear intimidates and paralyses.  Discouragement sucks the wind out of your sails and neutralizes your vision. God gives us a simple but extremely potent antidote to this left-right combination.  He doesn’t so much instruct us how to defeat fear in four easy lessons, nor [...]
