The purpose of our Leaders are to empower others and to be a servant to God. We encourage our Leaders to work with others to help them grow in the word God.
Christian Leadership is not rooted in worldly notions of success, such as the love of money or power.
Jesus Himself spoke against this when expressing the importance of serving others. But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave — just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” – Matthew 20:25-28, NKJV
Leaders are not to oppress and overpower others with their authority, like the Gentiles practiced. Instead, leaders serve others, which Jesus demonstrated when He “made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:7-8).
