Leadership - What Makes an Effective Director of a Mission or Christian Ministry?

Often missions do not grow because managers are put in positions of leadership rather than a leader -- a leader who is a missionary as well as a leader.  Spiritual leaders don’t usually look on their jobs from 8 to 5 or Monday through Friday, but are aggressively seeking to grow the ministry to accomplish a task given by God.  Leaders represent the ministry on weekends, recruit, and seek to work in development regarding finances and for the Great Commission.  Managers are needed, but not as directors. Directors/leaders need to practice management skills, but if someone is put into the position as Director of a mission or ministry who is a manager only, then the ministry does not mature and grow as it should or could.
