The ministry of leadership has become a perilous journey. In a world of changing cultural values and heightened expectations, the pressure to continually succeed weighs heavily upon today's ministry leader. Too often the leader's role is undefined, increasing the risk of public criticism and stress.
Wise and effective leaders (and teams) have always benefited from coaching through a variety of means: counselors, mentors, advisers, teachers, trainers, rabbis, etc. (See Gen. 41:12-39; Ex. 18:14-24; 1 Sam. 15:31-37; l Kings. 12:6-16; Acts 18:24-26; 27:31-44)
Leadership is a calling. It demands decisiveness amidst ambiguity. While remaining "above reproach" (I Tim. 3:2), the leader is expected to achieve certain accomplishments, results and measurable growth in accordance with a bottom line which is often unclear. Consequently, leaders are falling prey to burnout and moral failure at an increasing rate. Many are leaving the leadership ranks altogether. This trend will be reversed as leaders take initiative to partner with godly, qualified coaches.
