Faith and Administration

Paul was a great example of leadership from both a faith bias and a bias toward planning. In every aspect of his ministry he moved into uncharted territory with the Gospel because he knew God was calling him there. There was a treasure of elect unbelievers waiting for the good news. That’s the faith bias. He also moved from place to place with deliberate, strategic consideration. Cities were passed over, or through, that didn’t meet the criteria. Even his departures were carefully orchestrated, with leaders in place, and an expectation that in the end the investment had a reasonably good chance of paying off. Paul had both faith and administrative skill. A bias toward one or the other cripples effective ministry.
