HOUSTON, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Each of the twelve Apostles of Christ had his own personality and leadership style. Author Dr. Johnny J. Boudreaux says it should not be surprising, then, that individuals sharing the lessons of Jesus will each have his or her own way of doing it.
"Many leaders today are uncomfortable with another's approach to ministry," says Dr. Boudreaux, pastor of True Faith Missionary Baptist Worship Center and author of Developing A Process For Christian Leaders: Taking A Close Look At How And Where Developing All Begins .... "When the ministry of Jesus is the priority, leadership will have to make adjustments, as long as 'leading' is on the agenda and built into the process."
Dr. Boudreaux wants to help people realize that leadership styles must be adapted to the individual, the setting and the situation. By learning how to adapt one's leadership style, anyone can be a more effective voice for establishing the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth, Dr. Boudreaux says.
"Everyone has his or her way of doing things. Someone might be successful, but have no idea why. Or, a person might imitate the successful approach of another, yet fail. Why? Because he or she never understood the process."
He hopes to make readers feel confident enough to answer the call.
"I never cease to be amazed at how many people who say they are followers of Jesus Christ can believe that He has stopped calling leaders into His vineyards when there is so much to do. Jesus has not returned yet, but His power still generates in those who are willing to hold on to the faith."
