God created us to be in unity with other people. This is the truth in our personal lives, as well as in our ministry. If you do not have connections with other ministry leaders, you will create a barrier that will not be easy to fix in the future. As you watch this video, we will explore the importance of creating connections in the context of ministry, as well as what will happen if you do not.
There is a common notion that networking is only for people who like to “kiss up” to other leaders in some political attempt to make a name for themselves. While this may be the motive for some leaders, it is the wrong one. Having connection will revolutionize the way you lead in your church. Think about it practically. Have you ever been upset over something that you needed to seek counsel for? When this happens, you ask a friend or family member for help. Networking works the same way in that you have to surround yourself with influential, successful people who will help you grow. This is a prime representation of the phrase, “show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.”
Community in the form of connections will also allow you to reap benefits in many other ways. The advantages of having a solid foundation of well-rounded, intelligent leaders will encourage you and help you grow in your leadership. This video will point you towards some of the practical benefits of having connections, as well as how to build them.
Once you have an extended reach in terms of networking, it is imperative that you know how to get the most out of them. Your network can be a mutually beneficial resource for you and other leaders. In this video, we will explore the power of meaningful connections by examining six key thoughts on networking.
