Our Leadership Philosophy, "Equal as Brothers"
“Don’t let anyone call you ‘Rabbi,’ for you have only one teacher, and all of you are equal as brothers and sisters. And don’t address anyone here on earth as ‘Father,’ for only God in heaven is your spiritual Father. And don’t let anyone call you ‘Teacher,’ for you have only one teacher, the Messiah. The greatest among you must be a servant. But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” (Matthew 23:8-12 NLT)
They say everything rises and falls on leadership. We agree. How we lead is important.
At Mosaic, our view of leadership revolves around a foundation of integrity, transparency, and simplicity. We believe, as we have seen in every church, that “as the pastor goes, so goes the church”. We realize that those that attend Mosaic will always be limited by its leadership, this is why we make prayer and they study of God’s Word the foundation of everything we do. If we, as the leaders, are not growing and praying in the Lord, how can we grow others? We must lead by example in this area.
Jesus didn’t hide anything from his friends…and (pastors, deacons, elders, leaders) He won’t let us hide anything from them as well. Sure, you might get away with it for a season, but eventually it’ll come crashing down. God is patient. God doesn’t desire for us to be humiliated. He desires that we repent and be reconciled. He desires that we be more like Christ, open, honest, and truthful about everything.
The Church needs more transparency. I don’t know anyone who would say different. We need the same thing we’ve always needed…Jesus. He showed us how to lead. He revealed everything to us. He treated us as friends. I can’t imagine a better leadership model. Sure, some might leave our churches because of our transparency…they left Jesus. Should we be offended because they see our faults? Integrity is more than just telling the truth…it’s living in the truth…for good or bad.
Our Leadership Team
Jim and Joy Coursey
Jim and Joy Coursey have served in Marble Falls as pastors since 2009. Eventually recognizing the need for a “different kind of church”, Mosaic started in a home, then in a restaurant, and now we have our own place...but it still has that "home" feel.
Jim and Joy both work full time for local businesses and have a daughter who is living in Edmund, Oklahoma, another daughter at Texas Tech, and one presently in the Marble Falls school system.
Jim currently teaches our Wednesday gatherings and Sunday services, while Joy teaches our children ministries.
