Delegate By Passion

By Doug Franklin January 20, 2014

Most delegation is driven by need or selfishness. We are usually only willing to let go of something when we are overwhelmed or when we don’t want to do it.

What if delegation had nothing to do with us? What if delegation was all about the passion of others? ID-10088004

This mindset starts with us being willing to do anything the organization needs because if I delegate based on passion I will have to be willing to do what is left over. Then we profile each person who volunteers in the ministry asking ourselves, what will bring them to life? When I know their passions I can delegate leadership to them to will allow them to serve by their passion.

This kind of delegation will insure that volunteers will stay in the ministry. Your ministry will be developing new leaders and the more leaders, the more growth.
