"There is a deeper dimension of biblically based leadership that begins with seeking God's presence in our lives and our organization and then flows to the "doing" the necessary to bring results."
Melinda De La Hoyde on "Strengthening the Inner Core of Leadership" in "Nonprofit Leadership in a For-Profit World" by Eds. D. J. Gyertson and J. Krivickas
"We need to saturate our hearts with God's Word"
"Part of our task is to affirm one another's gifts and to respect one another's roles. This is a primary task of Christian leaders."

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." John 14:26, NKJV Bible
..., "Many Christian people today are so clergy dependent that they can't imagine how men and women without formal, theological training and the degrees that go with it can know the Bible and teach it effectively. We must remember that degrees are required in the world of business and academia but are not required to minister in the household of God. Some people who are not able to go to school are taught by Christ through the Holy Spirit. They are educated in His Word and thus, according to God's standards, are qualified to lead and teach His people."
-- Alexander Strauch in "Biblical Eldership"
The time Christians give to prayer and communion with God is not meant for their natural lives but meant to nourish the life of the Son of God in them. God engineers the circumstances of His saints in order that the spirit may use them as the praying-house of the Son of God.
When I am born from above, the life of the Son of God is born in me, and I have to take time to nourish my life.
The essential meaning of prayer is that it nourishes the life of the Son of God in me and enables Him to manifest Himself in my mortal flesh.
- Oswald Chambers, in "Biblical Ethics"
"Always make sure the Voice in your heart is God's, not your own"
- Margaret Campbell, in "Wrestling with God", film about the life of Alexander Campbell
"We must learn the language of our audience. ... it is no use at all laying down a priori what the 'plain man' does or does not understand. You have to find out by experience."
... "you must translate every bit of your theology into the vernacular. ... it is essential. It is also of the greatest service to your own thought. ... if you cannot translate your thoughts into uneducated language, then your thoughts were confused. Power to translate is the test of having really understood one's own meaning."
- - C. S. Lewis, essay "Christian Apologetics", in "God In the Dock"
"By trying to translate our doctrines into vulgar speech we discover how much we understand them ourselves. Our failure to translate may sometimes be due to our ignorance of the vernacular; much more often it exposes the fact that we do not exactly know what we mean."
- - C. S. Lewis, essay "God In the Dock", in "God In the Dock"
