Building Servant Leaders for Missions Around the World

In almost every context of life leadership can be found where there are multiple people attempting to complete a unified goal or purpose.  Although plural input is important to the overall goal, only one or two will volunteer or be asked to provide leadership overseeing the vision and mission behind the groups purpose.

When that goal or purpose involves sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, what should that leadership look like?  Can we just resolve to accept and apply leadership principles and models of the business world or possibly the military?  Will the world’s model of leadership agree with that we find in the gospel of Matthew, Chapter 20, “…but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant…”

Building Servant Leaders

Anyone interested in becoming a leader with the calling to share the gospel of Christ, must first imitate the leadership principles and model of Christ.  The world’s idea of a leader’s position, ruling over the common people, does not present the position Christ took among those around Him.  Therefore, it is important for those taking the gospel around the world to lead, but to do so in humility as Christ demonstrated. Organizations, such as the American Bible Society, expect servant leaders to possess qualities on the mission field that represent the gospel well.

Everyday organizations are teaching men and women how to become servant leaders.  Three of the major stumbling blocks to becoming a servant leader include:

  1. A desire to use of power and authority for self-gain.

  2. A desire to gain the approval and praises of other men or women.

  3. A desire to be rewarded for your current achievements.

For more information related to servant leadership and it’s characteristics, have a peak at this website.  Although these characteristics might benefit a person in the business arena, a servant leader receives all of his or her authority, power, approval and reward in Christ (a person) and not in works (a ministry).

Servant Leadership is a Lifelong Process

Servant leadership does not happen overnight.  There are many organizations that provide study and ministry opportunities, such as Ethnos360 Bible Institute, that prepare men and women for proper ministry on the mission field.  

Having the right attitudes and motivations before God and people form a beautiful unity in the Body of Christ.  Servant leaders provide examples to others of who Christ is to the leader, of how Christ work through the leaders and how Christ is the center of all joy experienced by the leader while serving Him at home, work or on the mission field.
