Instagram post 2339484197783153311_8304132507 This girl has her priorities straight! Junior Brina H. used her extra time after the stay-at-home order to help her little sister with homeschooling and connect further by doing art projects together. Her actions remind us that some of the best opportunities to lead are in our own families. We’re so proud of you!
Instagram post 2338844012951122489_8304132507 The comment bubble is tempting, but are we having influence? Are we effecting change, or just highlighting the problem? An uncommon leader understands that earning the right to be heard is necessary, and may take time. Let’s be willing to do the work, and put in the time!
"For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.” 1Peter 2:15 (ESV)
"An intelligent person is always eager to take in more truth; fools feed on fast-food fads and fancies.” Proverbs 15:14 (MSG)

Instagram post 2336560288655801668_8304132507 The Jesus Question: Is there anything I can do for you? This question is a helpful response when we don’t know exactly what to say to someone we discover is in need of help, or if we are just checking in with a friend. It doesn’t presume we CAN help, and it allows the other person to tell us what would ACTUALLY be helpful to them, rather than what WE think would be helpful. Sometimes, there isn’t anything we can do, except what we already did, which was to listen, and ask. The Jesus Question is truly other-centered. Try it sometime! #theuncommonleader #leadership #discipleship #bethechurch #leadershipcollege #sandiego #sandiegocollege #leadershiptraining #discipleshiptraining #outoftheboxleader #uncertainty #encouragement #thejesusquestion

Instagram post 2329279733858037757_8304132507 The posture of leadership is one of humility. Of getting up from our place at the table to do what needs to be done, even if it’s dirty. Of giving God permission to change our minds, even about strongly-held beliefs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him...When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place.” John 13:3-5;12 (NIV) #theuncommonleader #leadership #discipleship #bethechurch #leadershipcollege #sandiego #sandiegocollege #leadershiptraining #discipleshiptraining #outoftheboxleader #uncertainty #encouragement #humility #servantleader
Instagram post 2327827667323114488_8304132507 We are so proud of how Senior MJ is choosing leadership during this challenging season! While being furloughed from his job and his work on the CAST team for local first responders, he took on summer classes and helped lead a support group for high school seniors to help them process through their unprecedented year. We love how he is living out what he learns in our leadership labs! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Instagram post 2326413408756220956_8304132507 An Uncommon Leader thinks like a river: everything we learn is not just for us, but ALSO to help someone else, to train some else, to advocate for someone else, to give to someone else. What flows to us, should, at some point, flow through us. Even if we tuck it away for a later time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“… Jesus stood and shouted out to the crowds—'All you thirsty ones, come to me! Come to me and drink! Believe in me so that rivers of living water will burst out from within you, flowing from your innermost being, just like the Scripture says!’” John 7:37-38 (TPC) #theuncommonleader #leadership #discipleship #bethechurch #leadershipcollege #sandiego #sandiegocollege #leadershiptraining #discipleshiptraining #outoftheboxleader #uncertainty #encouragement #likeariver
Instagram post 2324219655692101200_8304132507 Change, learning, and growth rarely happen with a crowd. It’s the small circles of influence who watch our quiet commitment to the good, the right, and the lovely, and are inspired to share what they’re learning too. THAT is how we can effect great change. Each one, and their circle of influence. Uncommon leaders say, ‘Follow me as I learn.’ Let’s make a commitment that what we learn should also be shared. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #theuncommonleader #leadership #discipleship #bethechurch #leadershipcollege #sandiego #sandiegocollege #leadershiptraining #discipleshiptraining #outoftheboxleader #uncertainty #encouragement #bethechange #followme
Instagram post 2322940077821841538_8304132507 Dear Church,
In the midst of the deeply unsettling times we're currently facing, I'm calling for a special one hour night of prayer tonight at 7pm. We are now in both a viral and a cultural pandemic, and the church must use its greatest weapon in spiritual warfare - PRAYER. We made a commitment to #bethechurch during this season by remaining faithful in prayer, faithful in service, and faithful in generosity.  It's time to PRAY.  Please join me tonight for a one hour prayer service focused on the subject of racism, reconciliation, and unity. 
In Christ, 
Pastor James

Instagram post 2321303374911385252_8304132507 If you follow Jesus, you are called to ask those around you if they want to come, too. That’s leadership in a nutshell. There are plenty of opportunities to lead people toward goodness, right now. We need you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Give me revelation about the meaning of your ways so I can enjoy the reward of following them fully.” Psalm 119:33 (TPT) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
