You cannot lead effectively in the Kingdom of God without a strong mindset.
This leadership principle is taught at all the high-performance seminars across the world. However, for the believer, a strong mindset has different components than, say, high-performance corporate seminars or business leaders.
God desires you to have a mindset that reflects His Kingdom. He wants you to think like He thinks, see like He sees, and speak like He speaks.
But this is easier said than done, right?
So, in this episode we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series by giving you 7 Mindset Keys to Unlock Your Leadership.

There is no better way to expand the Kingdom of God than by genuinely loving people and adding value to them.
When people feel loved and valued, they want to be around you more, and that’s when you can make them have an encounter with the living God. There is no Kingdom leadership or influence if love is absent.See Show Notes
As we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we now take a deeper look at the importance of KNOWLEDGE.
It has been my observation that knowledge in the body of Christ has suffered two major setbacks in recent years.
It is scorned
It is ignored
This reminds me of the quote by Mark Noll in his book, The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, which says, “The scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind.”
knowledge, or acquiring knowledge cannot be ignored as something that is trivial. This, is a deadly mistake that pleases the Enemy greatly.
Kingdom leaders simply cannot be ignorant.
Remember: Ignorance is not a sin, the desire to remain ignorant is.See Show Notes
Servant leadership. The first time I heard the term, I was in my twenties. While I understood where the term came from, and to a certain degree what it meant, I still had a long way to go in applying it.
First of all, the term itself seems like a comical contradiction. The two words seem like they don’t belong together. And yet, for Kingdom leaders, it just fits in line with other Kingdom principles.
The least we can say is that the Kingdom of God is, unlike most of our latest tech, counter intuitive. Indeed, the Kingdom is a system of…
1. Exaltation through Humility (James. 4:10)
2. Strength through Weakness (2 Corinthians 12:10)
3. Freedom through Servitude (Romans 6:18)
4. Gaining through Losing (Philippians 3:7-8)
5. Living through Dying (John 12:24)
6. Finding through Losing (Matthew 10:39)
7. Receiving through Giving (Acts 20:35)
And to that list, we could add Leading through serving.
In this episode, we’ll look at just how essential servant-leadership is in the Kingdom of God.
How important is it, you ask?
Well, as the old American Express ad used to say: Don’t leave home without it.

This week, as we continue our Kingdom Leadership Series, we will talk about the necessity and the benefits of humility. We’ll also address the pitfalls of pride and false humility.
All great leaders in the Kingdom of God understood that without humility, there is no leadership in the Kingdom of God.
But what is humility? Is humility thinking you are just a little higher than cow dung? Hardly. And yet, many religious people would have you believe this.
The dictionary defines humility as: a modest or low view of one’s own importance.
Note how it doesn’t say a low view of one’s own capacity, or ability to contribute.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as: freedom from pride or arrogance
I like that even more.
C.S. Lewis said: “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”
So, this week, we’ll teach you how to think of yourself less.
