Your personal leadership brand doesn't mean you're going to grow up to 10,000 followers on Twitter or have a marketing campaign that changes the world.

Finishing is the easy part, it's the starting something that takes work.

Few things in life are more awkward than leading someone who doesn't see "eye to eye" with you. Maybe they are a few years (or generations) older and haven't caught on to the new tech thing.

Regardless of where you stand, this episode helps us understand what it's like to lead in both directions.

She’s always ready to explain what children really need, and how to develop them holistically by faith.

Innovative Ideas For When Ministry Gives You Lemons
When ministry gives you lemons remember…
“You build a children’s ministry by loving one child at a time.”- Pastor Tommy Burchfield
“Jesus trusts us with His sons and daughters. That is the biggest honor and largest responsibility”- Pastor Rachel Burchfield
Behind every child is a family. You are not just in children’s ministry, but in family ministry.
You can only give what you have. Stay full privately and you’ll flow publicly.
There is no such thing as a “Jr. Jesus.”

Driving is a true hobby of mine. I love the idea of going 70mph down the road and looking out to feel like nothing is moving at all. Doesn’t leadership feel the same way sometimes? You feel that the day to day to is going so fast and when you slow down you realize you haven’t gone that far at all.
This summer I had the honor of speaking to over 800 leaders stretched across 16 camps of our Discovery Camp program. Every leader is driving the vision. Your responsible for the passengers riding with you, and the engine of the vision you're leading. We took time to talk out the 6 areas I believe every leader needs to pay attention to in order to be a great driver.
Dashboard of Destiny
1. Battery Gauge – How much energy do you have before you start the next movement?
2. Speedometer – Schedule – The faster you go the more strain takes place on the engine causing a rougher rider for all involved.
3. Temperature Gauge – Team Culture- Teams are a tension that must be managed. Leaders have to keep the balance to ensure that teams don’t run too hot or cool off.
4. RPM Gauge- Recognizing what gear the engine is in helps keeping the journey from jolting all over the place. Leaders must have the “gears” or modes of life in a sequential shifting pattern to keep things smooth.
5. Fuel Gauge – Financial Resources – We don’t see “full” and “empty” true leaders see “FAITH” and “EXCELLENCE.”
6. Oil Gauge – Without oil the engine doesn’t run as it was designed to. Oil keeps the moving parts moving. When we see OIL in the old testament it was a symbolic expression of the anointing. Leaders must have the anointing in their lives as they lead to ensure things move the way they are suppose to.
