The role of a Christian leader is both challenging and rewarding. Those in leadership positions are tasked with guiding others spiritually while upholding biblical principles. In order to be effective leaders, Christians must develop a servant’s heart and be willing to put the needs of others before their own.
If you are a leader, you need to remember that people are influenced by your example, actions, and faith. Your impact grows stronger because of your commitment to God and your love for others. It requires daily surrender and sacrifice, but it’s worth it. The power of your words and actions will touch others and create a ripple effect that will ultimately last for generations.
In this episode, we are so blessed to be joined by the CEO of World VISION, Richard Stearns. Richard believes Christian leaders are called to be different because their leadership serves as a testament to the reality of the gospel message.
“You may be a pastor and think you've already surrendered. But surrender is a daily thing. You've got to surrender your church growth, you've got to surrender your church giving, you've got to surrender your sermons, and just say, ‘Lord, not my will, but Thy will. Help me to stay faithful and be the kind of leader you want me to be.’”
-Richard Stearns
