Identifying Potential Leaders
God has the ability to identify talent before it is even utilized for the Kingdom of God. Throughout Scriptures we see God calling people who others, and even the person being called, thought they were unfit for a particular role.Consider Paul, Peter, David, Joseph, Noah, Gideon, Esther, Moses, etc.God recognizes potential others can’t see.
I want in on that ability.I think God is seeing that potential in our church today, but He often uses me and leaders like me to find them.
The question I’m asking in my leadership today and encouraging our staff to be asking is:What is the best way to identify potential superstars early in an organization?
In doing this I know there are two levels of potential future leaders.The first group is already leading somewhere, usually in business or community activities.They just don’t yet know they can use some of their skills and experience in the church.They are the “Paul’s” of the organization.The second group has no clue they have any talent.They are the “Moses’” of the organization.Both groups have tremendous untapped potential.
How do we identify them and start using their skills for the Kingdom of God?I believe answering that question well is a key to taking our organization to the next level and helping it continue to grow.
