The Most Excellent Way to Lead Conference: Perry Noble

      He got his first official leadership position in 1991. In 1999 – NewSpring started with 15 people in a living room

Perry is from the Southern Baptist background. He said that the Baptist definition of progress is moving backwards slowly.

But eagerly desire the greater gifts. And now I will show you the most excellent way.
1 Corinthians 12:31 (NIV)
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:1-8 (NIV)
Substitute love for leadership. Leading people through love does not sound leadership-esque but it will get the best results.

  • An impatient leader will eventually become an ineffective leader. One of the best ways to lead excellently is to slow down, listen to people, embrace humility, and wash some feet.
  • Kindness (in leadership) means we're more concerned with who a person is becoming than what they're doing.
  • A leadership that’s rooted in bitterness, anger, and revenge never produces a desirable environment over the long term.
  • Hope is what causes us to believe that our setbacks are merely setups for greater things than we could ever imagine.

Four False Ideas
Myth #1: “I cannot be close to the people I lead.”
Everyone deals with insecurity. Position leadership will only take you so far.
People should follow you because of the person you are not the position you hold.
Insecurity = instability
Insecurity = inability

Myth #2: “Develop Your Weaknesses.”
Pitcher Clayton Kershaw
301 Strikeouts
2.13 ERA
Batting Average = 127
“If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself.” – only if you’re a bad leader!

Hard work beats talent every time when talent won't work hard.
Let’s stop looking at pedigree and start looking for anointment. There's always a gap between anointing and appointing
Leaders: cast huge vision, dream big dreams and refuse to apologize for doing so

Myth #3: “If I pray, it will go away.”
Illus. the beeping of a smoke detector low battery chirping in the middle of the night, praying that it will go away.
Prayer should never be an excuse for inactivity.
·      The church world is plagued with chronic over-niceness.

Leaders too often allow prayer to excuse inactivity.Doing the sandwich method – compliment, talking about issue, compliment – doesn’t work. It should be called a crap sandwich.
Have the though conversations... Don't feed people the crap sandwich
If they’re becoming the right person, then they will do the right things.
Leaders that love people well care too much to use prayer as inactivity
When the temptation to quit is the strongest, it’s usually right before a breakthrough

We absolutely pray – but we plant, plow, and perspire to see the vision become a reality!

Myth #4: “Our best days are behind us.”
If God has called us to lead, then the best things He wants to do are ahead of us, not behind us.
God always wants more for us than we want for ourselves.

Nothing robs people of hope more then when our work is driven by memory way more than it is by imagination
