Light from Asia 002: Is a Christian a leader or a servant?

Categories: Light From Asia (ARPC Missions)

Christian leadership

Pastor Luck Yong and missionary Mark discuss Christian leadership at the ARPC missions roundtable. What is a Christian leader?  Someone who tries to influence people towards God’s purposes. Servanthood is not pleasing people but leading people to do what God wants them to do.

A leader puts together the jigsaw puzzle of the body of Christ to build them up. One of the privileges of leadership is being stretched. Christian leaders submit to God. Example: David submitted to King Saul and trusted God. The challenge of giving feedback to leaders. You grow as a leader by growing in your present circumstances. Example: Moses said God would make a way.
