Leadership Essentials – Part 1

Welcome to Leadership Essentials!

We have crafted a journey for the leaders of our church. The material presented here will lead you down a path of discovery and reflection. On the one hand, this will be a journey filled with information. If you are going to be a leader at FBC Arlington, then there are just some things you should know. Thus, Leadership Essentials is filled with pertinent and useful information.

On the other hand, this is a journey of formation. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to interact with what you are learning and reflect on how it impacts your life. Leaders don’t just need information, they need formation. This material is designed to help shape you and help you develop a healthy, knowledgeable perspective about life at FBC Arlington.

This material is laid out in three parts. All three parts are important in providing you with the basic tools necessary for assisting in leading this congregation. I want to encourage you to complete all three sections. I want you to be as prepared as possible as a leader for our church.

There are many things that I love about both this material and the journey we have marked out for you. I love the transparency of it all. If you are interested enough to know, then you can know most everything about our church! How we make decisions. How our Budget is put together. What our Constitution and By-Laws have to say about anything. It is all here!

Plus, I love the way this information is organized and communicated. I have comprehensively addressed the appropriate topics that should interest any leader in our church. And – if you walk through the material in order – you will encounter various subjects in a reasonable fashion that all connects together.

I love serving alongside you here at FBC Arlington. Welcome to Leadership Essentials!
