As IT professionals, it’s not enough to support our ministries and non-profits, we also have to exercise a degree of leadership.
In fact, I believe that support, a fancy word for service, is really a form of leadership at its core:
“The measure of a leader is not the number of people who serve the leader, but the number of people served by the leader.” ~ Adapted from a quote by John C. Maxwell.
I saw a note on a copy machine recently that read, “You could save us $n,000.00 per year if you print more originals from the printer instead of making copies with this copier.” This is leadership! This is a thoughtful IT person (or accountant?) who identified that making copies is far more expensive than printing duplicates.
