Leadership in the Church

The biblical concept of leadership is characterized by servanthood.  Leaders are those who seek the welfare of the others and not of themselves.  They are dispensable, and in this sense the missionaries are the most dispensable of all, for their task is to plant the Church and to move on when their presence begins to hinder its growth.

It will not be so among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant,  and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave;  just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.” – Matthew 20:26-28
