What is leadership? What are the traits of Christian leadership? In this episode, Dr. Paul Michael Raymond points to Jesus Christ, the perfect leader. While it’s not a glamorous endeavor, Christian leadership is needful in kingdom building. He notes that leadership is done by example, not by barking orders. Knowledge does not translate someone into a leader. It must be put into action. A true leader seeks solutions and exercises compassion and carefulness.
“Leaders are not in the ivory tower,” says Raymond. “Leaders are in the mud. Otherwise, he’s not a leader. That’s just what it is. You must be willing to do the nasty stuff.”
Without a proper direction, and a proper goal, a leader is bound to fail. The Christian leader must set Christ-centered goals.
