5 Reasons Why I Am a GA Leader

Ocean View Baptist Church GA
  1. I prayed: Please provide a new GA leader to provide missions education for our girls. The answer was: You do it. I became a Girls in Action® leader then, and I am a still a leader now, because You do it still echoes in my head and my heart.
  2. Jesus said  “Let the children come to me... ” in Mark 10:14. GA® is the best way to “let the children come to Him”—to hear His love for the world and His desire for all to believe in Him. GA takes girls outside the church to recognize physical and spiritual needs and to do missions that shows the love of Jesus and tells the gospel story.
  3. Through GA JourneyTM, girls created missionary prayer cubes. Suggestions were made for prayer needs to be written on each side. Following safety and health prayer suggestions, one GA announced praying for lost people to be saved is the most important prayer need. They get it!

Confront When Necessary

So the question is “What is the most important thing you have learned about confrontation as a leader?” The answer is that it is necessary.

I don’t know of anyone who enjoys confrontation. In fact, I can name many who avoid it like the plague. Why? Confronting someone is never comfortable. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. As a leader, I sometimes find myself in a situation in which confrontation is necessary, but it doesn’t need to be mean-spirited.

In John 15, we are commanded to love one another just as Christ has loved us. Confronting someone in love is what we are to do. What I find more times than not is that once I confront someone and really listen to what he or she has to say, I learn that there has been a misunderstanding or there is more to the situation that merits seeing another perspective. The situation is oftentimes not nearly as difficult as I might think it is as I play it out in my mind.
