"Bored of Directors II"

Dance ministry leadership can be exciting and rewarding. After having done it for many years, if we are not careful, we can find ourselves weary and burned out. When we get to this point, we come to the unfortunate realization that we have missed it somewhere. It's time to get back to the place of complete reliance on God.

Some people are assigned to dance ministry leadership, but do not have the wisdom, skill, or anointing to carry it successfully. Others have a burden to lead, but become so self-reliant that they become the focal point of the dance ministry. These leaders often carry more assignments than they can accomplish, but neglect to delegate the work to other capable team members.

There can also come a time when we should have moved on or grown into our next assignment, but are living in the glory of yesteryear. This often results in ministries that are stagnant, lifeless, and lack Divine imprint. Instead of training others to lead after us, many are guarding their positions until the end. As it is often said, "There is no success without a successor."

If we are finding ourselves in a dry place as leaders, or want to know how to avoid this pitfall, we can be transparent at DANCE MINISTRY DETOX July 16th-18th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

New King James Version

Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

Exodus 18:14-23
So when Moses’ father-in-law saw all that he did for the people, he said, “What is this thing that you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit, and all the people stand before you from morning until evening?” And Moses said to his father-in-law, “Because the people come to me to inquire of God. When they have a difficulty, they come to me, and I judge between one and another; and I make known the statutes of God and His laws.”

So Moses’ father-in-law said to him, “The thing that you do is not good. Both you and these people who are with you will surely wear yourselves out. For this thing is too much for you; you are not able to perform it by yourself.

Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you: Stand before God for the people, so that you may bring the difficulties to God. And you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and show them the way in which they must walk and the work they must do. Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. And let them judge the people at all times.

Then it will be that every great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they themselves shall judge. So it will be easier for you, for they will bear the burden with you. If you do this thing, and God so commands you, then you will be able to endure, and all this people will also go to their place in peace.”
