Our world is awash with leadership trainers and gurus, claiming to show how people can do their job better.
But Christians only have one role model for leadership--Jesus Christ. And the leadership he calls us to is radically different to the kind of leadership the world looks for. It is wise, intentional and dynamic. But it is also humble and servant hearted.
The aim of this book is to help us think through what shape, color and texture the gospel gives to leadership. It is for all kinds of leaders--formal or informal, experienced or novice, actual or aspiring, skilled or simply doing the best they can. It is for leaders of churches, small groups, youth groups, large groups and even tiny groups of one or two.
The short, punchy chapters-with Bible studies, questions for reflection and ideas for action-build into a manual for testing and improving your own leadership as well as helping others grow into gospel-centered leaders. Use this guide to stimulate your maturing as the servant-hearted leader that God wants you to be, and to encourage others along the same path.
