“When disturbances come, when trouble knocks on your door, remember these words: The hand of the Lord is good on me.”
— Bishop G. Emerson Scott
Leadership is both a research area and a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organization to "lead" or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations. Biblical leadership is leadership rooted in the apostolic message of the gospel, centered on the full glory of the Triune God. Paul tells Timothy that his message need not be original, but it must be faithful to the apostolic message. This is similar to Jesus’s commission to teach “all that I commanded you” (Matt 28:20). It also echoes Paul’s earlier exhortation to “retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me” (2 Tim 1:13).
Church leaders must provide spiritual shape to the convictions of the next generation of leaders. The church, not the seminary, is the pillar and support of the truth (1 Tim 3:15). The church’s leaders should be positioned to offer basic training in areas of hermeneutics, theology, sermon preparation, pastoral ministry, and other vital disciplines for aspiring leaders. It is here that seminaries can serve a vital role in coming alongside churches that have sparse resources or lack the academic accountability that more structured environments provide.
To that end, Bishop G Emerson Scott provides essential leadership training to church leaders and aspiring ones, as well as community leaders, activists, and entrepreneurs.
God created the material world, including material things and wealth, with sufficient provision for the needs of all humans through common use for nurture, enjoyment, and to flourish.
Wealth Building is a discipline, a commitment. It starts as a state of mind. You will usually get what you focus on most of the time. Focus on bills and you'll have a hard time paying them. Tell yourself daily how bad you have it and you are focusing on poverty. The Bible says, "A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children" (Proverbs 13:22), therefore letting go of old notions of wealth and thinking more "Prosperity" will help to change your outlook on how you perceive wealth and manage your assets and finances.
Bishop G. Emerson Scott firmly believes in the biblical principles of Wealth Building and the mandate every Christian has on their life to fulfill them. He teaches how to be good stewards through faithfulness to God, intelligent work, discipline, and commitment.
The mystery and privilege that is Christian fellowship, is that it exists because God has enabled it by His grace. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity is the basis of fellowship. The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces these things in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. This relationship must be the basis of Christian fellowship. We are united to one another by common beliefs, purposes, and goals.
Through his organization, Impact Family of Covenant Churches, a religious organization that leverages the gifts, assets and other resources of its members, Bishop G. Emerson Scott brings people of all backgrounds together whose desires are to grow more spiritually, minister to others, expand their network and enhance their net worth.
