Challenges can refer to a conflict of nature (I challenge you to a dual).
They indicate the magnitude, or difficulty, in achieving a specific goal (We are challenged to reach five thousands souls).
They may be an objection (Our purpose is being challenged by another organization).
Challenges also express a motivational tactic to create action (I challenge you share Jesus with others).
Our leadership will face challenges, many of which fall into one or more of these categories.
Leadership exists in the face of challenge at every level. The true measure of our character is determined by where we stand in the times of challenge.
