At church, when we do our leadership internship, we invite married couples into the group. Every new addition to our group, at some point in the year, shares their leadership journey. After sharing their leadership history, we all gather around the one who shared and call him or her to life, as we listen to the Holy Spirit.
Susan and Darrell gave a unique flare to our team. When it was Susan’s turn to share her story, she told about being a cheerleader in high school and how cheerleading exemplifies who she is—“I love the rah-rah of life. I love passion and enthusiasm, encouraging people, and getting excited about the things of God!”
Every group needs cheerleaders. Not everybody has to be a Susan, but a team without the drive of passion and enthusiasm is like roller-skating on Myrtle Beach.
Enthusiasm keeps things moving forward. Passion keeps the important things at the top of the list.
As leaders, we have the privilege of generating enthusiasm in our team. Boring meetings are often just on the left side of pond scum. According to the Internet, as of today, there are 4,376 ways to generate enthusiasm and passion in your team. If you can’t come up with any on your own, I am concerned for you.
I challenge you and your team to come up with at least twenty-two of the 4,376 ways to make your team exciting found on Google. Gratitude, fun, and passion—essentials for your kingdom culture. Don’t just say, “That’s nice!” Live it, Facilitate it, Do something about it. Enjoy it!
