Jesus challenges every Christian with the Great Commission to, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations..." This is a command that should resonate with anyone calling themselves a Christian. Once I understood that, I could no longer sit idle and watch the lost around me perish.

It is of the utmost importance to be on the same page theologically but it is also important to be on the same page regarding ministry philosophy. A philosophy communicates to others what you consider most important. It clarifies the goals, purpose and priorities of your ministry. It is the meeting point of belief and ministerial implementation.
Leadership in ministry starts at the core of the one leading, his faith in Christ. He should be a committed Christ-follower with a firm grasp on the Truth of God's Word. He should be above reproach, emphasizing a Godly character. Finally, he should be aware of his own motives and trust in the direction given to him by the Holy Spirit, yielding his will to God.
