Leadership Development Opportunities

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.~ Hebrews 13:7

It all starts with Why?

Jesus is very clear that our primary focus in life should be to grow in our love for Him and to help others do the same. These are called the Great Commandment and the Great CommissionAdditionally, God directed us to building businesses and organizations of excellence also known as the “Cultural Mandate” as defined in Genesis 1:28, 1:31: “God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it…God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.”

To do those effectively we all need to continue to grow as Leaders. CBMC is focused on meeting men right where they are and helping develop them into the Leaders God designed them to be.

Remember the TV show Seinfeld? For 9 years starting in the late 80’s, viewers would get to do life for a half hour with Jerry, George, Elaine and Cosmo Kramer. 

One show after another, we would never know what was coming next and I don’t think Jerry, George, Elaine and Cosmo knew either. 

It was a satirical yet pretty realistic glimpse of the life that many Americans lead; taking circumstances over hours, days, and weeks and even years as they unfolded- no strategy in life- no stated purpose in life...it’s all just nothing. 

While the show was entertaining in small doses and worth a few laughs, when it comes to real people in real life that take this approach, life is pretty empty. 

The research group Survelum asked questions about Life Purpose to 1,022 people and 75% of respondents indicated that they did not have a clear understanding of life’s purpose.Of the 25% that did, most of the time the stated purpose revolved around “enjoying life”. 

75% with no purpose. 

These are the people we work with, other parents we spend time with at our kids activities, our neighbors and family. 

So, how about you? What is your personal purpose in life?

In the early stages of forming our CBMC Young Professionals teams, part of the process involves guys taking an extended period of time (couple months or more) to craft a Personal Purpose/Mission Statement. 

What does God say about our purpose in life?

Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.~ Ecclesiastes 12:13

And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.~ Michael 6:8

Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.~Matthew 22:37-38

As I shared this with guys in one of the Leadership Institute Trusted Advisors teams I lead, several in the group said that they would like to go through the process of creating a Personal Purpose/Mission Statement- we’ll begin working on it during some of our devotional time at the August meeting. 

Most of you reading this letter probably have at least a broad vision for your life. While you aren’t living out your own real life Seinfeld episodes, you still might consider going through this exercise as well. There’s an easy and informative guide  to help you found at advance.cbmc.comthen into the Classic edition of Operation Timothy, book 4, last chapter. 

I’d love for you to share with me your Purpose/Mission Statement or as your working on it, shoot me the different versions as you tweak and hone it in. Email me at asmith@cbmc.com
