AGRM Member Benefit: Leadership Advancement
AGRM believes that strong leadership makes for stronger missions. That’s why the association offers several benefits geared toward sharpening leaders. Executive leaders can take advantage of the annual CEO Summit, where they can go to discuss high-level issues, share ideas, get boldly honest, and network with people who understand the challenges of leadership; find thought-provoking insights and information in the Executive Session e-newsletter; work through key issues during one-to-one consultations with AGRM’s president; and dialog through the association’s Executive Leadership Connect Group. What’s more, AGRM offers a nine-month board acceleration program called Ripple Effect.

For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised (2 Corinthians 5:14–15, ESV).
When you wake up every morning, what’s the first thing you think of? When you make a decision, what’s the motivating factor? These are both important questions we should be asking ourselves. The Apostle Paul tells us what the answer should be if we are Christians, that “the love of Christ controls us.”
This “love of Christ” can be present in two ways. First, it is that we understand the love Christ had for us through his death. Second, it is that our understanding of His love brings us to love Him, and then our love of Jesus controls us. It can be a struggle though, to envision what this love looks like.
Often when we hear the word love, we think of romantic notes, bouquets of flowers, or even “puppy-dog” eyes for someone. But when we only think of love in these ways, we do it a great disservice, especially considering we don’t always have intense emotions or feelings directed toward Jesus. Paul’s words today should help use to realize that this love is not simply a feeling for someone, but action that stems from “abiding” in his love (John 15:9).
