Thank you to the 2,000 leaders who’ve generously done the 7 Questions on Leadership!
I hope Paul's answers will encourage you in your leadership journey. Enjoy!
1. What have you found most challenging as a leader?
What I found challenging as a leader is when someone under you faithful and committed has a need and all the prayers and fasting seem not to be working.
2. How did you become a leader? Can you please briefly tell the story?
When I received Christ I had a strong desire to serve him, that was my passion. Anywhere I go and anytime I come to church or fellowship I will gladly offer my services. So service was what brought me into leadership. I still see myself serving only on another capacity in the kingdom.
3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?
I like to plan my day, from the previous day I envision how the next day will be and plan for it. I believe in making your day fruitful and impactful.
4. What's a recent leadership lesson you've learned for the first time or been reminded of?
Lead by example
5. What's one book 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?
Servant leadership by Rick Warren. I learnt every leader is a servant.
6. If you could only give one piece of advice to a young leader, what would you say to them?
No matter what level you get in leadership or what God will accomplish through, you must not take glory for yourself.
7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a leader, so far?
It is the story of how one day I was standing on the Altar talking with God's people, they were praising me and telling me how I have affected their lives and how loyal they will remain with me. while listening to them, GOD SAY TO ME WELDONE, THEY ARE YOUR PEOPLE NOT MINE. I became afraid and from that day I point men to the master.
