Midweek Message

September 21, 2022

Dear Calvary family,


We, as Jesus people, are after what is on, within, and the focus of God’s heart. A leader after God’s heart honors the LORD. Seeks deep intimacy with God. 


Leadership is first about being. Jesus as a Great Shepherd shepherds us according to his integrity of Heart. We, as leaders serve- in our marriages, homes, families, businesses, work places, congregation, and influencers of leadership in our larger society- are called to serve according to the integrity of heart we see shown in Jesus.


Leadership is also about doing. We read in Psalm 78:72 that leadership is both heart and hand. Just as our God in Jesus has integrity of heart our Lord also guides us with a skillful hand. Leadership then is a composite of character and proficiency. The nature of a person’s inner being as well as their capabilities and skill sets makes a leader.


When God chooses a missional leader for His missional people, His measure first looks into the heart. Let’s us continue to monitor, grow, nurture, and cultivate our hearts within Jesus’ love so that we can press into the new together.


Pressing into the new missional adventure with you,

Pastor Michelle
