Are we OBSESSED with titles?

May 20, 2014
Someone I have known for some years and recently started attending my fellowship, was VERY surprised to find out that I am an ordained pastor… she was even more surprised to find out that not only have I been a pastor for several years but that I have pioneered and led 2 churches and 2 para-churches, co-founded 9 churches and used to co-oversee about 15 churches and pastors … This person refers to me as “Sister Bola” and NEVER once have I corrected her or requested that she address me differently… This incidence brought to mind the OBSESSION i have noticed we have, in the faith community, with TITLES… people will go to any length to get a title, an ordination, honorary doctorate, etc… while there is a place for titles, I really wish that people will be more OBSESSED with building the character and anointing that goes with a title/an office. It is SO cheap to get a title and at the end of the day a title means NOTHING without the anointing. When you have it, you don’t need to announce it. Which is why I don’t go around introducing myself as pastor this, Bishop this, Apostle this… the anointing speaks for itself! Saul had the title/office of “King” but it was David, a mere shepherd boy, that had the anointing that slayed giants… SO, pleeeease, STOP trying to impress with your title, rather impress with your accomplishments… your fruit, your results, your spiritual sons and daughters, your character… YOU know what they say; “empty vessels make the most noise”…  START seeking the anointing… the anointing comes in the secret place, in prayer, in brokenness, in the wilderness… the back side of the desert… that is where champions are made.

The Beginning of Greatness!

May 7, 2014

I am SO excited… I dreamed of doing it for many years and ecstatic to be finally doing it… stepping up to my apostolic mandate to make “Disciples of ALL nations” (Matt 28 v 18 -20).
Yes, with the beginning of LIVE classes for the spring 2014 semester of my mentorship and training program, Conquerors Academy, tomorrow, Thursday, May 8, 2014 at St. James Church, 1018 Farmington Avenue, West Hartford, CT 06107 from 6 -9pm, I officially begin to fulfill my mandate.

The spring semester is eight weeks long and classes will be held weekly through June 26, 2014. We will be laying the foundation and learning the “Foundational Principles for TOTAL Success/Destiny”, in this semester. Our first class, tomorrow, will be introductory – a general overview of the program, goal setting and setting of boundaries. [Virtual (online) classes will start next Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at 1pm, EST, 12noon, CST, 10am Pacific Standard Time and 6pm GMT].

Greatness/destiny always begin with a seed, the first step… am looking forward to meeting all the participants and seeing how things will evolve and what God will do. I pray it will be impactful and transformative.

There are still a few spots available, and invite you to enroll NOW, and be a part of this revolutionary program that is designed to transform and equip you to function in your God-given role as a leader of change.

Get ready to; elevate your thinking, enhance your performance, expand your influence and excel in your results!”™

I look forward to seeing you there. Invite someone. Thank you for giving me the opportunity of serving YOU!

YOU’RE A CHANGE AGENT!

May 5, 2014

Do you realize that God has called you not to conform but to transform… your God-given role is as a transformer and leader of change! (Romans 12 v 1-2). You are God’s representative on the earth… his agent, called to bring about global change… the light in the midst of a dark and perverse generation. You are God’s ambassador called to infiltrate the culture with his kingdom principles and power…It’s time for you to step up to your God-given role!

That is why I created Conquerors Academy… to equip you with the practical biblical tools and strategies, to empower you, and come along side you, as you seek to step up to your call…
I have been blessed with over two decades of experience as an international corporate lawyer, founder and leader of several for profit and non-profit organizations, as a coach, trainer and mentor of many individuals and organizations and plan on sharing authentically with participants my set-backs, challenges, successes and failures… it is my goal to make the program as authentic and real, as possible, so that you can avoid some of my mistakes and learn from my successes…

I have intentionally designed the classes to be small and intimate, so you get a unique opportunity not only to plug into a small powerful community of like-minded people but also to get “close up and personal” with me!

Only five spots are available for both the LIVE class beginning this Thursday, May 8, 2014 at St James Church at 6pm OR the ONLINE class which starts next Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at 1pm, EST. Click and find out roof tiles in san diego .

I hope you will take full advantage of this opportunity to be trained, mentored, equipped and positioned to walk in your God-given destiny and to maximize your impact on the earth. Remember, we shall all one day give an account of our stewardship… I pray we will not be ashamed on that day!

Enroll now to be radically inspired, informed and transformed to the glory of God!

See YOU on Thursday and next Tuesday, as the case may be.

New Year, New Beginnings!

January 21, 2014

It is often said that; “only a fool does the same thing and expect different results!” and since I am no fool i began to ask myself this question; “what new thing are you going to do in 2014 to get better results?!”. I have been musing on that question for a while and I finally got my answer… I will be more still in 2014. i will wait on God more. I will make sure that am led by the Spirit and NOT by my mind/intellect/emotions. I will go forward, not in my own strength, but in the strength of God. I will allow God to take the lead!

I know that for many of you that is NO big deal but for the control freak that I am that is a BIG deal! lol. I realize that in the past I tend to lean heavily onto my own understanding, that I had become the master and architect of my destiny and I was the pilot while God was the co-pilot. As my own master, I have accomplished a lot of success but realize that I will be TOTALLY successful if I allow God to be the master, architect and pilot.  So, I am “letting go and letting God”… In practical terms, that means I will be spending the first quarter of 2014 BE-ING still… in the presence of God… waiting, praying, seeking, listening…BE-ING quiet… No appointments, running up and down, networking, etc… just BE-ING

What about YOU? what are you going to do differently? What is your NEW strategy for TOTAL success in 2014?
