The Leadership Crucible
Never before has life been in such a degree of flux. Our lives are lived at a rapid pace. Social structures like the family and the church, which once provided a sense of identity and community, have given way to internet chat rooms and spending significant time with our work associates. For many, life is empty, and because of that, people are exploring spiritual options. At the same time, there is a growing sense within the church that today, as never before, we need leaders. There are those who recognize the need to raise up godly individuals to provide leadership. What a wonderful opportunity for Christian evangelism! To seize this opportunity for evangelism, however, it will take individuals filled with the Holy Spirit who, like the sons of Issachar, “understand the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do” (I Chronicles 12:32). Why not learn more by visiting my course, Pursuing Your Mission from God
Think like Jesus Lead like Moses challenges us to look to two of the world’s most successful leaders to see how they guide people in the wilderness. The course provides applicable insights into well-known leadership styles by constructing a bridge between commonsense business methods and profound biblical insights. David’s transparency and honesty as he shares his own fiery and refining trials gives you a “safe place” to admit your failings and successes.
David was the guest speaker at our annual all church retreat. He lead 3 sessions for our group based on his book. I couldn’t have asked for a better speaker! His style was engaging and he walked us through a very well laid out program. We had a lot of great, honest, thought provoking discussion about the mission and direction of our church. We had several initiatives coming out of the weekend that we hope to implement in the coming year. I highly recommend him as a speaker to a small or large group!
Kathy Sampson, Rosedale Hills United Methodist Church
In the secular world, we place a tremendous burden on our leaders. It should come as no surprise, then, that as leaders, we are tempted to think we are the ones who have to “do it all.” Moses started out thinking that way. But then, as the people grumble more and more, he cried out to God and said: “I can’t carry all these people by myself! The load is far too heavy!” (Numbers 11:14, NLT). As Moses came to recognize the need to build teams of trusted advisers, and prepare his successor, Joshua, to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land, God taught him the power of cooperative effort through the Body of Christ. I encourage you to take this course with your leadership team to see how you might apply this same lesson to your ministry team so that you may build a vehicle to take you into the Promised Land.
Do you have a need for a dynamic speaker that addresses the confluence of technology, faith and political leadership in today’s culture? If so, I invite you to contact me to see how we might partner together to educate, inform and inspire your audience.
What Others are Saying about David Lantz
“Like so many ordinary people called to do extraordinary things, I observed David Lantz emerge from the grassroots to lead the Indiana Christian Coalition during my talk radio days in Indianapolis. His book serves as a road map for so many Americans who today are answering the call to rise up to become the “Gray Champions” of their local communities.”
The Honorable Mike Pence, Governor, State of Indiana
“It has been my pleasure to work with David Lantz. In his book and seminar, Think like Jesus, lead like Moses, David clearly communicates positive leadership skills that allows those who are in the process of discipleship to best understand Godly techniques for effective ministry. You will be inspired and refreshed as you take this study with David.”
Pastor Ed Fritz, Goshen First United Methodist Church
“When I was appointed interim pastor of Faith Lutheran Church in Cincinnati, I knew I wanted to offer the congregational council a Saturday leadership training workshop. We not only decided to offer our own leaders David’s presentation “Lead Like Moses” but we marketed a Friday evening event to the community. From David’s presentation, FLC’s leadership team is focusing on new outreach ministries for the first time in years. Thank you David!”
Rev. Mark Powell, Interim Pastor, Faith Lutheran Church, Cincinnati, OH
