Leadership Lessons from Tim Tebow

I never dreamed I would be a Denver Broncos fan. But now I find myself trying to watch every game they play. Of course, the truth is, I’m a Tim Tebow fan. What’s not to like about Tebow? (It also doesn’t hurt that they have former Georgia great, Knowshon Moreno.)

Here are a couple of things that have recently come to my inbox on the subject Tebow and leadership. They are definitely worth watching and reading, especially if you want to pass on some important leadership principles to young men and women in your spheres of influence.

Cheers,

The first is from Tim Elmore at his website, Growing Leaders.

And also…

Here’s a post at Brian Dodd’s great blog on 14 Leadership Lessons Young Leaders Can Learn from Tim Tebow. Good stuff!

Shepherding Sons

(The following comes from a new page that I just started today.)

I’m blessed to be a part of a great group of men at the church I serve. Each and every week we meet together for the purpose of fellowship, studying God’s Word, and prayer. God has been good to us ever since we first met back in 2001.

My hope and prayer when I first started the men’s ministry was that the men of our church would come to know Christ better and to have their minds renewed and their lives transformed… in every sphere of their lives… personally as well as at home with their families, at work, at church, in the community… everywhere. Again, God has been good and I have seen firsthand how this has happened and continues to do so.

One of the best ways we, as Christian men, can extend God’s Kingdom and impact our culture for Christ is by influencing men before they’re men. I believe the time to begin discipling, encouraging, and developing Christian men is when they’re still boys. Wouldn’t it be great if generation after generation of boys grew up in our churches where being discipled by their fathers and other godly men was commonplace? What might God do in and through the lives of such boys when they become men?

This page is devoted to some things I’ve written on the subject of shepherding (i.e., loving, caring for, encouraging, leading, discipling, developing, etc.) our sons to become men of God. As a father of three I can attest that I’m still learning. I still fall flat on my face as a dad. However, it’s my deepest desire that my own sons would become godly boys, then godly young men, and then, one day, godly men who are raising their own sons or daughters to know the Lord Jesus Christ and to live for him in every sphere of life. What could be better?
