EP 152 - Servant Leadership Part 1
/

The boys are back at it again. This week Bob and JimBo are dipping their toes into a discussion about servant leadership. Stick around next week and they will dive even further in with the help of Bob Bumgarner.

  • Jesus came to serve – not to be served
  • As elders, pastors, and leaders we have been called to serve – to equip – to honor God and others
  • Robert Greenleaf writes “The servant-leader is servant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant – first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. The best test is: Do the served grow as persons; do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous more likely to become servants.”
  • In his book, The Servant, James C Hunter defines servant leadership as “The skill of influencing people to work enthusiastically toward goals identified as being for the common good.”
    • Hunter says we lean toward power or authority in our leadership
      • POWER – “The ability to force or coerce someone to do your will, even if they choose not to, because of your position and might.”
      • AUTHORITY –  “The skill of getting people to willingly do your will because of your personal influence.”
  • Three questions we should ask ourselves
    • Person – Who is God shaping me to be?
    • People – How am I leading those God has given me to lead?
    • Purpose – What is God calling me to do?
