Anointed Leadership

This is another article out of the John Maxwell Leadership handbook that I wanted to share with you. We discussed this in our Staff Meeting at Oasis Church Monday morning and really birthed some in depth thoughts and discussion:


When Moses brought down the 10 Commandments, his face shone with the glory of God. The nature and character of God had begun to rub off on Moses, and the glory took such tangible form that he had to wear a veil over his face. The Israelites sensed both God’s presence in Moses’ leadership and a divine anointing to lead.

What does it mean to be anointed? Here’s one way to break it down. Anointed leadership is characterized by:

1. Charisma – The anointed enjoy a sense of giftedness that comes from God. It seems magnetic!

2. Character – People see God’s nature in your leadership. They Trust You.

3. Competence – You have the ability to get the job done. Your leadership produces results!

4. Conviction – Your Leadership has backbone. You always stand for what is right!
