Out of the interior life of the leader flows a certain kind of aura, ethos, and culture. I call this the leadership “leak.”…What is going on inside of us automatically flows out. Everyone leaks…Leaders are no different. Who they are – for better or for worse – directly impacts the flavor, feel, and health of a local church.
When I was in England last Fall, I travelled two hours by train each way to attend a church, in large part because of its “flavor, feel, and health.” Every Sunday, I remind myself that I have the privilege of helping to shape the culture of a church. It’s exciting, and scary.
