Leading by Christs' example. Leading in a way leaders without Christ cannot.
What a leader is in the world view often differs from what Jesus' view for His disciples is. There is something being a servant/ambassador of Jesus brings to the table that no other teaching or discipline can manufacture. There are a great many scriptural references as to what the difference is meant to be. It is up to us to find and walk within that difference.
bible:BookOf1Timothy bible:BookOf2Timothy bible:BookOfTitus are each considered pastoral epistles. The concepts and doctrines contained in them along with the bible:BookOfActs are required material for any type of Christian leadership. Many scholars also consider bible:BookOfNehemiah and the bible:BookOfEzra as well as bible:BookOfJoshua and bible:BookOfProverbs indispensable courseware too.
Leadership is not just for pastors, but a true pastor must first be a true biblical leader. We all then are called to be servant/leaders whether it be at work or family or within our communities/congregations.
Let us share our growth in these extraordinary things!
