College Student Leadership Success Secrets: Choosing, Serving & Leading Student Campus Associations

My alma mater UCF has a huge amount of student clubs, organizations, associations, fraternities, and sororities. Honestly such an overwhelming amount of social, organizational, and leadership opportunities can be down right mind boggling.

Invite worldwide speaker and life-changing author Paul F. Davis to speak to your college students about success secrets, breakthrough leadership & academic success!
RevivingNations@yahoo.com

If you’re anything like me, you may need some simple steps to help you consider when to begin on your college campus when considering joining a club, organization, or student association.

Here are some secrets for college student success that will serve you when choosing a club, organization, or association.

1. Choose a group based on your personal interests and inner affinity.

Don’t be enamored by the biggest and the loudest group on campus. The most vocal club, organization, or association may not particularly be the ideal fit for you. If big parties and all night craziness is your thing, than perhaps so. However most of us will probably want a little more than just the social element to a college student club, organization, or association.

I suggest reading each club, organization, and association’s vision and mission statement. UCF has an easy to use, college student friendly website at the student union where much of this information can be accessed and easily browsed through.

If your campus isn’t as internet savvy and friendly, visit your student union and get any printouts with such student club, organization, and association information. Every college and university is different, so inquire as to what is available on your campus.

Then based upon your major, interests, hobbies, and desirable career choose a club, organization, or association that works for you.

2. Be friendly, helpful, and listen attentively.

Avoid walking into any club, organization, or association and projecting yourself as the know-it-all. Such a person is rarely welcomed and often immediately ostracized, if not down right alienated from any meaningful interaction.

Enter as the new kid on the block with a heart to help, serve in any capacity, and listen attentively. This attitude and heart will serve you well and always compel people to be friendly to you, while also propelling you to the top because you are likable.

Pleasantries go a long way when pursuing purposeful living with people. Arrogance and pride conversely will kill any momentary progress you may have made and quickly jade and persuade people to turn against you.

Therefore choose to be the likable guy or girl, who is friendly, helpful, and willing to serve however you can.

3. Learn from others older and more polished than yourself.

As I’ve always said, show me your friends and I will show you your future. Association leads to assimilation, both academically and professionally. This is why doctors have to do internships before they begin their professional practice. Being around a skilled and established professional undoubtedly will rub off on you and cause you to learn and pick up things you otherwise would never learn.

Observation and association lead to skillful and professional assimilation, which books alone can never accomplish. Knowledge does not equal know-how. Therefore who you know, esteem, associate, and interact with is extremely important to ensure you continued personal growth and success.

Therefore serve quality people when they surface in your midst. Honor, respect, and nurture relationships with winners who have the ability to impart truths and skill sets to further your own success. Walk with winners and be enlarged to live your dreams and fulfill your destiny.

Remember when the tide of the sea goes up, all ships in the harbor together rise. Therefore do not be intimidated by others success. Honor, celebrate, and learn from those who have preceded you and proven themselves to be successful.

Success can be taught, caught, and generatively passed along like a baton in the decathlon.

Happily put these 3 powerful college student success secrets to immediate use and your life will soon be moving magnificently to the next level.

I look forward to hearing from you concerning your recent success stories and vision for the future.

Church Growth Consultant For Pastors and Congregations – 15 Reasons Why People Leave Your Church

It often baffles Pastors and church staff why people leave “their” church. Some folks visit and never return. Others who were a vital part of the church community suddenly disappear through the proverbial backdoor.

How can Pastors and church staff grow themselves to prevent loss of life in the church?
This is not only a compelling question, but also the very hinge that holds every congregation together. Life begins within. If the foundation is not strong and properly laid, it cannot sustain outward and ongoing growth.

Jesus said we spiritually know people like trees by their fruit or the lack thereof (see Matthew 7:16-20).

Here are some reasons people leave a church:

1. Lack of warmth, hospitality, and affirmation.

When you first walk into a church, what do you feel? What do you see? What do you hear? If there are no smiling greeters with a sweet spirit to welcome you, it is easy to wonder if you are even welcomed. People like to go where they are celebrated not merely tolerated.

Does your church make people feel like they are burdening or blessing you when they arrive? Do people feel safe or judged in your presence? Do you love people unconditionally, or do you have some ulterior motive driving you?

Die to your agenda and embrace the great commandment to love people.

People are wounded, hurt, and disillusioned. They need to be comforted and consoled. People need a loving touch, kind word, and a hug. A good word makes the heart glad (Proverbs 12:25 b).

Love, embrace, and affirm people in your midst. Many people attend church because they are hurting, feel lonely, and need to be encouraged. Don’t miss the divine appointment and send people away feeling worse than when they came to you.

2. Lack of joy and spiritual atmosphere.

The best way to create a healthy spiritual atmosphere is through praise and worship. Worship is a time when God becomes the focus and we die to ourselves. Only as people focus on the Lord do they quiet their souls and concerns. We all have innumerable cares and challenges, but as we uplift our Creator in worship the Presence of the Holy Spirit can attend to matters of the heart and sweep away all despair within.

Apart from the divine Presence of God’s Holy Spirit, church is nothing more than a religious social club void of God altogether. The Holy Spirit inhabits the praises of God’s people (Psalm 22:3). Therefore enter God’s glorious Presence with singing and gladness of heart (Psalm 100:2).

Fullness of joy is found in the Presence of the Lord (Psalm 16:11) as we open our hearts to the Lord and express our love for God. Joy is captivating and contagious! Truly the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10), without which congregations die and diminish in number.

Remember God seeks those who worship Him (John 4:23). God prospers those who serve Him (Psalm 35:27). Grudgingly serving God however is burdensome. Only as we receive God’s love and embrace His heart for us, can we be inspired to worship the Lord our Maker. As God’s love and life is adequately expressed and exalted during worship, we are touched and transformed in the Presence of the Lord (see 1 Samuel 10:9; Ezekiel 36:26-27).

3. Lack of an enriching word from God to build their lives.

The Word of God’s grace builds people up, carrying them into the arms of a loving heavenly Father and empowering them to enter their personal promised land (see Acts 20:32). Churches that become overly encumbered with announcements, exhortations to give, and shouting from the pulpit often lack the nourishing Word of God.

Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Feed the sheep Jesus has entrusted to you with the milk and meat of the Word of God (see John 21:17; 1 Peter 2:2).

4. Lack of a family environment and sense of community.

Families with children want to feel secure and know that their children will be cared for. An excellent and clean nursery with professional staff is vital to instill confidence within people that you genuinely care for their family. Ministries for youth of all ages and adults with various interests all create affinity and a sense of community.

As fellow citizens in the kingdom of God we must endeavor to rejoice in the commonwealth and embrace the household of faith (see Ephesians 3:15). As we do we shall unite and rejoice together as a precious family in God that is one in Spirit.

5. Lack of meaningful ministry opportunities.

As people grow and mature spiritually they want to be able to use their gifts, talents, and abilities to serve. Amazingly, people grow more in six months when doing ministry than in six years of receiving ministry. Otherwise boredom sets in and quarreling will begin among the ranks. The church of the living God is both a family and an army. When the army serves purposefully, they are too focused and tired to fight one another. When the army sits and does nothing, they get frustrated and angrily speak against its leaders without a clearly communicated vision.

Jesus came not to receive ministry, but to minister to others (Matthew 20:28). It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).

6. Lack of vision, focus, and purpose for the congregation and its members.

Church leaders must grow in God’s grace and ability to communicate “heavenly vision” and divine direction (see Acts 26:19). We must “purpose in the spirit” as God directs us through prayer (see Acts 19:21).

Jesus came to “seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Jesus told His disciples to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:20). We therefore must touch people locally, while also reaching to impact nations globally (see Acts 1:8). As we do so our communities will be impacted and our church members will grow as we “go into all the world to preach the good news” of Jesus (Mark 16:15).

7. Excessive competition, pride, and backbiting among church members.

When a worldwide vision is not imparted to God’s people, they become focused on and bicker about trivial things of no eternal consequence. Murmuring and complaining cut off the life flow of God’s Spirit and quench the warmth within a congregation. Pastors and leaders should be peacemakers and make haste to put out small fires before they spread and do great damage (Matthew 5:9; Hebrews 12:15; Ecclesiastes 9:18).

People have enough drama in their professional and family life. They go to church to get away from drama, not encounter and be overwhelmed with more of it.

Jesus is the Prince of Peace and God’s kids are peacemakers (see Isaiah 9:6-7; Matthew 5:9). God is love (1 John 4:16), which is first shown through patience (1Corinthians 13). If we say we are born of God, than let us be patient with others as they mature and grow in divine grace.

8. Lack of fathering and mentoring from the Pastor and church staff.

Churches across the country are full of teachers, orators, and preachers. Few however make themselves accessible to the people to touch them at a deep level. The apostle Paul acknowledged this tendency among ministers himself (see 1 Corinthians 4:15). Jesus showed His disciples the Father heart of God (see John 14:8-9). If we want to truly nourish and see people grow, we must give of ourselves to people (see 1 Thessalonians 2:8). Otherwise we are nothing more than a hired hand that cannot be trusted (see John 10:13)

9. Unorganized church life

People need clarity and things to be done orderly so they can follow along as participants (see 1Corinthians 14:40). The best airports are those that are well organized and clearly laid out. Otherwise being unable to discern directions, facilities, and resources one can become frustrated and discouraged. This is how many church members feel.

10. Insufficient fun activities to be social and make friends.

People like to have fun and be entertained. Jesus came to give us abundant life not merely church (see John 10:10). God is a Creator. Be creative and make things fun for people. Otherwise they will go somewhere else. Remember God is both happy and holy. Embrace and exemplify both in your life.

11. No sense of adventure and personal challenge to grow.

Jesus had His disciples leave the comfort zone and “launch out’ into the unknown (see Luke 5:4). Only as we are stretched do we grow. Physical strength comes through resistance training at the gym. Life and ministerial challenges should be encouraged, as they will bring about unprecedented growth in people.

Be like Jesus. Refuse to let your church members stagnate and stink. Keep them moving and give them opportunity to use their giftings.

12. Overwhelming amount of pressure to give resources, time, and talents.

The media and corporate world have made merchandise of people. Consumerism and comparison saturates nearly every level of society, as we are made to compare ourselves with others. Feeling and flipping between being haves and have-nots dwarfs our true identity, while thwarting and hindering our divine purpose.

The Church of Jesus Christ is the one place where humanity ought to be able to sit down and rest without feeling as if they are being made merchandise of (see Psalm 23:1-2; Ezekiel 34:1-4). To fleece and rape God’s sheep for personal financial gain, ministerial fame, and simply to fulfill your dream is insensitive and a misuse of the divine vocation to which we have been called.

Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit when taking offerings, presenting needs, and recruiting volunteers. Don’t twist arms and apply undo pressure by making people feel guilty. Let the Lord speak to His people, which if He does not perhaps you either need to work a bit harder to fill in the gaps or maybe lay down a personal agenda God may not be blessing.

13. Lack of genuine interest from the Pastor and staff in the personal life of its members.

Jesus took a genuine interest in people. He spoke in parables to properly relate and enter their world. Too often we are irrelevant and clueless pertaining to the lives of our people. Jesus asked questions to gauge where people were in their lives.

Jesus asked, “What do you want me to do for you?” (Matthew 20:32)

14. Ego and individualistic mentality among the Pastor and church ministers hinders the life flow.

This mentality breeds spiritual poverty and animosity within church members. As pride, comparison, competition, and ego become king sincerity and transparency leave. Thereafter walls are erected relationally throughout the congregation as people endeavor to protect and project their image, after which genuine life flow ceases to exist.

15. Lack of humility and service in the hearts of Pastors and leadership.

Jesus said the chief leader should become the servant of all (see Matthew 20:25-26). Lack of heartfelt service flowing from leadership breeds distrust and causes a disconnection among the people. Arrogance always eventually alienates people.

“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor, and life” (Proverbs 22:4).

Manifest these in your life and church leadership and all will be well within your congregation. People emulate what they see in their leaders. There shall be like people, like priest (see Hosea 4:9).

Church Growth Consultant – Transition, Transcend, and Transform Your Church

Church growth is an interesting topic because there are two ways one can evaluate growth. Growth can be quantified by numbers in how many people attend the church services. Alternatively, growth can be measured by spiritual growth and godly character evident in a believer’s life. Thus church growth is measurable inwardly and outwardly.

The American Pastor usually wants growth to occur numerically in terms of how many people attend his church. Righteousness, holiness, and repentance are rarely preached in the pulpits of America. Such are essentials to facilitate spiritual growth and maturity.

The truth and irony to some however is that without inward spiritual growth, outward exponential growth in terms of people will not occur. This is based simply on the fact that people attract people. Everybody knows and influences somebody.

To what extent we influence others is determined by our own ability to passionately respond to God and humanity. Secondly, our grasp of truth and spiritual concepts paves the way for having meaningful spiritual dialogue. Thirdly, our own level of personal happiness and fulfillment will be either contagious attracting people to us or when we are sadly lacking serve to repel people away from us.

These are intangible things that cannot be taught, but that must be caught through relational and spiritual interaction. Unfortunately, the American church is far more cerebral than it is spiritual. We want to study everything to the nth degree and create a formula to follow. Sadly we are more creative in the drafting of our rigid methodological formulas than we are in our living expression among our peers who we desire to influence.

My travels to over 50 countries and 6 continents, working across denominational lines in an interdenominational capacity, have shown me that passion is paramount and crucial. Again something that cannot be taught, but that must be caught. Passion and love cannot be adequately explained, they must be experienced. The experience is unforgettable and very impressionable.

Thus it is the divine experience that precedes exponential growth. Such a divine experience can occur either directly with the Creator Himself, or indirectly with His people who are deeply connected to heaven. The drawing power of the Holy Spirit flows both ways and produces remarkably in and through whosoever will.

This is what the world needs – an experience with their Creator and with people who know Him intimately in divine relationship.
