Christian leadership is servant leadership. If you are a Christian then Christ calls you to serve, and if you are a Christian leader then Christ calls you to lead through serving.

What have you been putting your hope in lately to relieve your heavy heart? The Lord and the Lord alone is the savior. He can lift your heart above the earth because he holds the earth.
Look to him, turn to him, call upon him, and come to him. Jesus said,
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from ... Continue Reading.
