Sorry to say, many times leadership has been totally contrary to what the Bible teaches. Many leaders are focused on what they can get from their positions of authority, rather than on what they can give to the works in which they are involved. While some view it as a tool for popularity and power, leadership is a privilege. Leadership also requires responsibility. We need biblical leaders who are people of integrity and humility. Leaders who are willing to be different. This book is for men and women who make, or desire to make, an impact on others in the Body of Christ. Your biography, like those of the servant-leaders who have affected my life, is not likely to end up in a large Christian publication, much less in the Wall Street Journal, but you do find yourself in some position of leadership. Did you get your position of leadership because you have formal training in the field? That is possible. Perhaps you became a leader in your church, your school, or your ministry because you have acquired a storehouse of experience. Chances are that experience came on the field of battle. You learned as you went. Perhaps you are where you are because no one else would volunteer for the position. Maybe you lead because you signed on and automatically became the leader, ready or not! It is obvious that you cannot be a parent, a teacher, a preacher, a Sunday school officer, a Christian school administrator, a deacon, or a youth sponsor without functioning as a leader. It comes with the package. It is part of the deal. We may be the reluctant leaders, but, whether we love it, like it, or sigh heavily, we are the leaders God has chosen to use, and God gets His work done through us! God is getting His work done with willing servants, average people who are good followers of Christ. Amazing, isn't it?

An overseer…must be above reproach. 1 Timothy 3:2 Scripture holds leaders and teachers of the Word to an incredibly high standard. And for good reason.

When we think of “leadership” today, we have too many examples of the type of leadership the Pharisees practiced, and few examples of the type of leadership Paul explains in 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12. With a careful exegesis and practical application, this book will help you know what kind of character
