What are some of the steps that are being taken in your ministry organization to assure that individuals are deeply connected to Jesus?

  1. I suppose that a short devotional meeting at the outset of the day would be a good focus point for a Christian office. But that can end up being a mere show of religiosity.

    The most practical thing I can think of is when the key leader, the “executive director,” for example, has a recognizable connection to Jesus. The leader’s relationship with the Lord will set the pace for the rest of the people in the organization. When he pauses in the midst of a strategy session to say, “Let spend some time praying about this –” that will go a long ways in promoting deep connection with God – much more than a stated policy! When He is always sharing about his own need for more of Jesus, it drives the rest of the team to share that drive and desire.

    But the organization needs to take some practical steps too:
    • schedule retreats for all the staff
    • encourage or even require team members to be read devotional books, perhaps even providing the books in a library, or as a supplied resource
    • have team members take a day each month to refocus the heart on Jesus
    • be in the habit of praying around the room at the onset of staff meetings
    • share testimonies together about your walk with God
    • have a “chapel” service once a week
    • send daily texts of prayers and devotional thoughts to each other

    Without Him we can do nothing (John 15), and it is only through Him that we can do anything of divine purpose – foster that awareness by your own life and it will be a culture that is picked up by the team.
