After rereading Tina Housers’ book and identified which principles were my strengths and my weaknesses, I took the time to carefully think over and pray about these four principles. The principles in the book that I found to be strengths of mine included: laughs and participates as a team player. The two principles I found in the book that I need to improve on were; pointing others to Jesus and administrates meetings efficiently. The first strength that I believe will help me once I begin my ministry is laughs. This is strength of mine because I work best whenever I am able to do work but have fun doing it at the same time. As a leader my hope would be to make the working environment enjoyable for the people. I would try to make sure that …show more content…
A leader who is able to show this type of support and trust in the volunteers will make the group even closer.

So this can lead to me sitting back and just listen to what is being talked about. So when it comes it administrating meetings I could find myself allowing people who are strong willed take over the meetings. I have already mentioned it but pointing others to Jesus is a weakness mostly because of my spiritual journey.
