"Organic" Leadership

Author: Tom Bandy

"Organic" leaders are different from "Constant" leaders because they embrace purposeful change and reject heritage protection. They accept and engage the post-Christendom world, rather than try to preserve or recover the Christendom world. They are not in confrontation with culture, but rather in conversation with culture.

Q/A: How easy or hard is it for a constant leader to become an organic leader?

Many clergy yearn for more ... but are you ready to pay the cost of discipleship?

Author: Tom Bandy
The transition is challenging because it either requires a dramatic change in your life circumstance, or a dramatic experience of a different kind of incarnation. You become empathic toward different lifestyle segments; feel very different anxieties that rock your world; emerge with a new kind of courage .... and only then develop a new strategic plan for ministry.
