Evolving Leadership

When leadership cannot see anything wrong in their results, they have declared an internal war on their establishment. Both in the church and in every layer of society, custodians of the old can only ignore their failings at their own peril. Therefore, be aware that present privileges could be the enemy of future fruitfulness. If…

Boundaries of Dreams

No one is without a dream. Although some people’s dreams are nightmares, some are paradise-in-play, and others are a muddled mix of many meaningless frames, . . . still, dreams are snapshots from the future. There are dreams people have while sleeping; there are those people have while awake. Either way, no dream comes to…

Leading to the Grave

I have continually wondered why what is mostly designed and developed to edify a people turned out to become their destruction. Systems, structures and solutions that outlive their purpose becomes incinerating fire for destruction of what was once valuable. Honestly, the challenge with ageing leadership is that they have overstayed. Many have conceeded the decision…

TO TRUTH – Happy Birthday, Pastor Tunde Bakare

“Sir, what are you telling her. . .?”That was the first statement he ever made to me. I was gisiting with a young lady in front of the Church’s bookshop on Akilo Way, when Pastor Tunde Bakare showed up behind me. He was doing his “management by walking around” as usual. I lost my voice…

Of Leadership and Rulership

Lately, there has been the growing desire of people to lead other people . . . infact, many people are doing the impossible to lead a people, even if the people do not want their leadership. A closer look at politics in families, communities, nations and even churches would reveal these trends. But may I…

DAY THIRTY-TWO: Responsible Followership

What manner of people are we supposed to be in following Christ?What manner of people are we supposed to be in following other brethren in Christ?What manner of people are we supposed to be in following other people outside of Christ . . .”in Christ” do not necessarily mean “the Church.” The age-long question has…

DAY ELEVEN: Stumbling in Daylight

Hosea 4 has a unique story. Things have gone wrong, though the leadership in the temple was aware of it; they did nothing significant to address it. The people were beginning to rebuke each other, passing bulk of blames among them; they had enough to go round. While all these was on-going, God decides to…

DAY FIVE: The Real Image

There is one thing that has become the centerpiece of leadership, mostly to ministers who bring the word of the LORD to people who seek the LORD – it is the distancing of the speaker from the word they bring. They speak to matters as one who already conquered the matter; hence their confidence and…

Skeptics and the Shifts

I was in church for the first time in a very long time since COVID happened. Evidently, so much is never going to be the same again. I know it is human to easily forget our traumas and return to life, like nothing really happened but it seems we are unaware that this particular trauma…

This Thing Called Mentoring . . .

Moses led (not mentored) Joshua, but Joshua didn’t start his ministry while Moses was alive…same for Elisha to Elijah…same for Disciples to Jesus Christ! None of them went to wake the dead for instructions…the same Holy Spirit that was on their leader was who came on them (for some in double portion). They did greater…
