Servant Leadership

For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness. Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Romans 12:4-10, NRSV

We believe good things happen when the people of God are released to express their God-given gifts and passions for ministry. Leaders are called by God to lead with diligence, and when they do so the community of faith is energized and mobilized to accomplish all that God has in mind.

Our primary model of leadership is found in the person of Jesus who exemplified, in deed and word, the impact that a servant leader has on the people around them. Jesus’ words echo through the ages:

“You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. It will not be so among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave; just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:25-28, NRSV
