In the last few posts we’ve been discussing the idea of leadership. We’ve looked at leadership in general. We’ve looked at the difference between effective leadership and moral leadership – at least as we’ve defined it. We’ve determined that there are many different styles of leadership that can be both great and effective. And we’ve looked at how context plays a role in who ends up leading.
Today I want to look at what we might call Christian leadership. Really at the end of the day that should be our goal as believers if we want to lead. This is not as simple as “lead like Jesus” although obviously we want to look at Jesus who was without a doubt the greatest, most effective leader of all time. And He still is.
So what does it mean to be a Christian leader? How do we do it?
