Three ministry challenges from Robert Clinton

In the final chapter of The Making of a Leader, Robert Clinton outlines three challenges for leaders.

  • In relation to personal leadership: ‘When Christ calls leaders to Christian ministry He intends to develop them to their full potential. Each of us in leadership is responsible to continue developing in accordance with God’s processing all our life.’

We should be what God intends us to be.

  • In relation to rising leadership: ‘A major function of all leadership is that of selection of rising leadership. Leaders must continually be aware of God’s processing of younger leaders and work with that processing.’
  • In relation to ministry philosophy: ‘Leaders must develop a ministry philosophy that simultaneously honors biblical leadership values, embraces the challenges of the times in which they live, and fits their unique gifts and personal development if they expect to be productive over a whole lifetime.’
