Leadership Team Nomination 2022

Austin Mustard Seed is beginning the process of establishing a Leadership Team. The purpose of this team is to discern and guide the direction of our community and to provide oversight and support for team leaders and pastors.

The members of the Leadership Team will be those individuals who are living out the Guiding Values of Austin Mustard Seed and who see the big picture, think systemically, and lead others not just by words but by example.

Qualities of members of the Leadership Team include:

  • Maturing – Members of the leadership team should have a pattern of living as obedient disciples of Jesus. Evidence of this should be seen throughout their faith history and continue to be a hallmark of how they are working out what it means for them to follow and be formed by Jesus.
  • Humble – Serving on the leadership team is not to be seen as a place of power or prestige, but a place of service and care for the greater good. Leadership team members show an awareness of self and openness to thoughts and feelings of others in relationships as they guide and nurture our community.
  • Faithful – Leadership team members are those who orient their way of living around the Apostles and Nicene Creeds — the historic beliefs of the Christian faith — and our community’s narrative in that faith: http://austinmustardseed.org/about-us/ .
  • Available – Those who serve on the leadership team create and guard space for the time and emotional resources to offer careful attention to the responsibilities that come with this role.
  • Discerning – The role of the leadership team requires the capacity to recognize and respond to the directing of the Spirit both as individuals and as a group. This takes listening to God and one another, trust, and time in prayer.

Nominations for the Leadership Team will be taken from April 3 – 24.
