From the Board of Elders

From the Chair of the Elders
                  By Jody Warren

Writing an Elder Board Monthly Message at time can be a situation which tests my abilities. I want to share what the AHCC Elder Board is doing, and to encourage the Elders, Deacons and members, while avoiding the temptation to write a sermon.

Working for a ministry such as ours can be challenging because of the many hats church volunteers and employees wear and the limited resources available in a smaller congregation to help fulfill the church mission and God’s Mission. Hopefully, these missions are actually One Mission. In our operations, we are all AHCC leaders in the broadest sense of the word “leader.”

Being a leader takes courage, discipline, and determination. While a great leader can bring great success, it also comes at the cost of being judged and overwhelmed. The Bible speaks of so many wonderful leaders and how God blessed them for their work. There are many verses and Scriptures that God spoke to encourage men and women who choose to step up and lead.

The good news is God’s word is full of encouragement for all of His people. If you are striving to be a leader or if you need inspiration along the way, these Bible verses about leadership should help! I have selected only a few. I pray that these scriptures are an encouragement to you! Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6 But those who wait on the Lord, shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
