Frequently Asked Questions
Most leaders follow the example of someone who led them and they emulate their style. Others find their own leadership style, but even then, they are leading by what they have experienced. A Christ following leader follows the example of Christ and the way he lived during his time on earth. Christ’s life and mindset is best described in Philippians 2:1-11. Two ideas are evidenced in this passage: that Christ was humble, though God in the flesh, and; that he sought to serve rather than to be served. Can you imagine the power of your leadership if others saw a humble, servant’s heart in your leading?
