The Place and Practice of Servant Leadership

This series is dedicated to contributing to our on-going dialogue regarding spiritual leadership in the body of Christ at Reynoldsburg. As we consider leadership, we are reminded through biblical exploration that from the perspective of Jesus, at the heart of leadership is service. Jesus is king and at the same time, a servant.

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Mark 10:45

    Servant leaders should be only willing to expect followers to do what they are willing to do themselves. Jesus command to wash one another?s feet was intensified when he himself got on his knees and washed feet first. Thus servant leadership is not telling what people to do, it is being.

    Servant leaders are consumed with the task of helping others grow and mature in Christ. It becomes the heartfelt joy of servant leaders to see the growth of others and the growth of the church. Since growth of others is so key, cooperation with others is preferred over competition with others.

  • Serve Upside Down

    Servant Leaders are Committed to Humility

    Dion Frasier

    by Dion Frasier

    Preaching

    April 22nd, 2012

    In the Philippian letter, Paul includes in his writing what was believed to be an early Christian hymn. In this hymn a Christological argument is made referring to Christ?s divinity and his astounding humility in giving up his rightful place as co-equal with God to become human and serve us. It sets the stage for the early church to pursue humility in all circumstances and stages of life. It is also the undeniable mark of a true servant leader.
    Primary text(s): Philippians 2:1-11
