Transforming Vision to Victory
God has a unique vision and purpose for you that He intends for you to accomplish. I help Christian leaders, entrepreneurs, and creatives set goals and achieve them. Sometime we just get stuck, need greater clarity, new ideas, encouragement, or a source of accountability.
My early years were tough, driving me to the bottom of a deep, dark pit, leaving me with two choices: die or climb out. But, I wasn’t alone there, made it to the top by the grace of God and never looked back, because I knew Jesus Christ and trusted Him.
Facing Down Failure
After thirty years of success, God asked me to step outside of my comfort zone and work only for Him, doing things I didn’t know how to do. I did okay for the first few years, then hit a huge speed bump.
I didn’t know how to get over it, so I tried to ignore it, which brought me to another major decision point. It became painfully clear that God wouldn’t move forward with me until I moved forward for Him. Radio silence from above wasn’t something I could live with.
So, I did the work. Not because I knew how and not because it was outstanding work, but I stretched as far as I could. God redeemed my effort the same way He’ll redeem yours, and I continue to build on the vision He has for me.
God Always Makes Able
I help Christian clients get unstuck and move forward. I guarantee you, whenever God calls, He also equips. I’ll be real, I’m transitioning from not-for-profit ministry back to business and the new online platform to serve you better is under construction. This website isn’t Open for Business yet, but I’m here to help you.
Imagine that your church plant isn’t officially meeting yet, but you’re still pastoring, ministering, teaching, and available because that’s God’s vision for you. That’s where I am.
Elements of Success
Two things determine success, the quality of your actions and your relationships. In forty-plus years in corporate America, as a business consultant, serial entrepreneur, and working in ministry, I know how to set goals and achieve them. My sweet spot is creating what doesn’t exist or fixing what’s broken.
Leadership is the ability to earn respect, focus, and make a commitment without an escape clause. Maybe it’s time to make God your business partner and bring Christ into your organization, scale your ministry, or push your dream from the drawing board to production.
Walk Your Talk
Thirty years as a horse trainer, most of them working with stallions, taught me to earn respect and trust, because there’s no other way to get a 1500-pound testosterone-filled critter to partner up.
The most important element of leadership, discipleship, or horsemanship is how you live your faith. People don’t believe what you say, they believe what you do. Ministry isn’t a title or job, but what you do every day.
God calls you to serve and to make disciples the same way Jesus did. No matter your audience, flock, or herd, your job is guiding others to transformative faith.
We all need support, objective feedback, accountability, and maybe even a cheerleader. More opportunities are coming soon, but if you’d like to talk about your vision and move closer to victory, contact me for a complimentary conversation.
The Parallel Between God and Horses
Many articles, resources, and tips on LynnBaber.com speak about leadership and horses or horse folks, but are universally true because they all rest on simple gospel principles.
Unless you have one in the barn, horses serve as metaphors. They’re as simple and silly as three year old children but wise as Yoda. Horses help us carry the weight of worthy leadership, understand that limited commitment always produces limited results, and that love is the most powerful motivator.
