Our Vision

Helping church and ministry leaders take their leadership to the next level.

You Can Get Involved

HDLeaders is a faith ministry. We come alongside church and ministry leaders to help them increase their impact with better leadership.   Many of the leaders in the exploding global church do not have the funds to gather the resources they need to grow as leaders. We raise funds to make it possible for us to deliver direct to leader engagement with these leaders. We are investing our thirty years of leadership experience into the up and coming leaders of tomorrow.

Lack of desire for leadership in China

On our last trip to China, we learned that there is a very LOW desire among people to step up as leaders.  Seems that their view of leadership is very low.

I made this chart on my flight home comparing the paradigms in the two places of America versus China

America                                   CHINA
____________________________________________________________
Desire to lead                              No desire to lead – might lose face
Leaders are strong                      Leaders are weak and serve everyone else like slave
Leaders make a difference          Leaders just do all the dirty work
Leaders are criticized                  Never criticize a leader
Good models abound                  No good models exist

 

Here are some more things I learned:

Three big challenges that church leaders face in China:

  • Church Workaholics – everyone in China works seven days a week and church leaders do not take a sabbath day off. Pastors are expected to work 24/7 to serve the church.
  • Top down leadership style- Most pastors lead by command as dictators.  But these students this week want to change and lead with a servant leadership style like Christ.
  • Misunderstandings about Servant leadership – the common view sees the pastor as just a servant:  “The pastor serves  everyone and does everything.”
