Our view is relatively simple. We believe that God has called all participants in the church to use their gifts and abilities to love others. That love compels us to put ourselves at the service of others.
Leadership is an act of service, not a position. Leadership is about stepping up to serve and to model love, not about become the centerpiece of the life of the church.
Leadership is about helping others be at their best in serving people.
Leadership is about creating context for the application of love and about encouraging others to fully engage in the realization of the Kingdom of God in our individual and communal lives.
Here's a 20 minute clip that frames leadership really well. Enjoy!
