7 Questions with Jaycee
Current title: Apostle
Current organisation: Ksw
My name is Jaycee Mdletshe, I am an apostle and founder of the Kainos Spirit of Worship Church. I'm also a proud father of 2 beautiful girls.
1. What have you found most challenging as a church leader?
I won't lie, starting without financial muscle is the most challenging thing ever. However, having to keep God and the congregation happy all at the same time can be challenging as well. We grow into strong leadership.
2. How did you become a church leader? Can you please briefly tell the story?
I was groomed by my pastor to become a leader, especially a Missionary. One day I received a calling from God and I answered.
3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?
It's tough, but I dedicate the first 8 hours ( 6 - 14) of the day to my family. Once my kids come back from school then I'm off to do my spiritual routine and come back at 18:00. Then it's family time yet again. I do squeeze in some other stuff that pops in between.
4. What's one book apart from the Bible that has had a profound impact on your leadership so far? Can you please briefly tell the story of how that book impacted your leadership?
"Prayer that avail much" by Joice Meyers. I never was a prayerful Christian up until I read that book. It changed my standard of prayer.
5. What's the most recent significant leadership lesson you've learned?
Never think yourself high above the congregation /Church. It has a way of coming back to hit you hard. 2; once I ordained someone prematurely, he manifested his true character later and I regretted the decision I made.
6. How do you develop a healthy leadership pipeline in a church?
Home cells, it has been my key fundamental since the beginning.
7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a church leader so far?
When someone I trained and ordained took over the church I entrusted to his care. Instead of being angry at his doing I drew closer to him than before, he wondered as to why and I told him that the church was never mine in the first place. I told the church that I belonged to God when he was serving under my leadership and it will still continue to be God's entity even under his leadership.
