Ever wonder what to give to your church?

I’m working on a little project for our church and you are the first to see it. It’s a Tithe Calculator where you can plug in your paycheck info and percentage you want to give and it spits out a suggested dollar amount. The program keeps no personal information, it just calculates it for you:

Let me know if it worked for you and what you think in the comments. Thanks!

GLS 2015: Craig Groeschel – Expanding Your Leadership Capacity

Founder and Senior Pastor, LifeChurch.tv Twitter @CraigGroeschel

Eph. 3:20 – 21

There is way more inside of you than you can imagine. That our God wants to do.

Capacity – is what you can handle, what you can produce.

As your organization grows, your mindset has to change. If you don’t, you’ll be the lid to your organization.

GLS 2015: Liz Wiseman – Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing

President, The Wiseman Group Twitter: @LizWiseman

We work hard to gain experience and mastery. Is it possible that we are at our best, when we know the least…when we are rookies.

Rookie moments – think back to when you were new

  • How did you feel?
  • How did you operate?
  • What did you do when you didn’t know what to do?
  • What was your aspiration?

GLS 2015: Sam Adeyemi – Crushing the Power Chasm

Founder and Senior Pastor, Daystar Christian Centre Twitter: @Sam_Adeyemi

John 14:12 – For Christ, the purpose of His leadership was the success of His followers

Following you should hold the promise of life change for those who follow you.

The downside to power distance is that it can leave followers with low self-esteem and afraid to challenge a leader’s view

They tend to wait to approval before doing anything.

Jesus crushed the power gap between men and women, adults and children, leaders and their followers.

God is calling us to build new power structures.

There is something about leaders and talented people that makes us think that people can’t do what we do.

  • We don’t delegate

If you are in an under resourced part of the world, see it as an opportunity for leaders to empower people.

GLS 2015: Brian Houston – Resilience: One-on-One with Brian Houston

Founder and Global Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church Twitter: @BrianCHouston

From a little child, Brian wanted to become a preacher. Yet was terrified of public speaking.

Hillsong Church started in a small school hall. It has spread out all over the world with 75,000 regular attenders.

One of the hardest things in ministry was a disappointment with his father. In 1999, his father was accused of molestation of a minor 20-30 years prior. He went into leadership mode, leading others through the crisis. Emotionally and internally from the grief, shock and trauma led to a panic attack four years ago.

GLS 2015: Sheila Heen – Thanks for the Feedback

Founder, Triad Consulting Group

Feedback = all the information available to you about you. The performance review.

Organizations spend billions of dollars training managers on how to give feedback.

In any exchange between the giver and the receiver, the receiver is in charge.

What if we could see that receiving feedback is a skill.

Two Human Needs:

  1. Need to learn and grow – the drive for learning
  2. The need to be accepted or respected and loved the way we are now

GLS 2015: Horst Schulze – Creating World Class Service

Chairman and CEO, Capella Hotel Group

“Ladies and Gentlemen serving Ladies and Gentlemen”

Service = Caring

It’s people talking to people.

A great business if you do four things:

  1. To create loyal customers

    • Dissatisfied customers – terrorists against your companies
    • Satisfied customers
    • Loyal customers
  1. New customers
  2. Make as much mone without losing the customer
  3. Efficiencies
