I was sharing with a friend recently about the call of God on my life and the purpose of my business/ministry. Some people call it their life plan, vision or destiny. I’ve known since I was 11 years old playing drums in a local gospel music band that in some capacity I wanted to help people share their messages with the world to advance the Kingdom of God. Through the years, I’ve used different words to best describe that vision. It’s taken shape through various activities on both a personal and professional level. Along the way, the core essence of that call on my life has been the same. With each step in my journey, there were defining moments that helped shape and clarify what that purpose looked like and how it manifested for each season.
As John C. Maxwell says, "we all have a sphere of influence" and I believe leaders influence their followers and visa versa. In any case, there are traits both in the natural and spiritual realms that attach to both the leader and their followers. We reflect the characteristics and traits of those we connect with, follow, imitate, etc. For thousands of years in the Jewish culture, followers dressed liked, spoke like, and lived near their chosen rabbi. You could, and still today can, look at them and know who they follow.
I've been helping Christian-minded communicators (speakers, authors, artists, etc.) and business owners share their products, programs, events, and reach their audiences around the world since 1994.
