Title: Servant Leadership

Servant Leadership

Are You A Leader?
Servant Leadership
3
What is a Leader?
  • A Leader is someone called by God to lead,
    whose character honors God, and who possesses the
    competencies to be effective. George Barna

4
Gods Leadership School
God develops His leaders over their lifetime.
He begins by calling them to ministry, each pers
on specifically chosen for His purpose.
He then prepares equips them for ministry.
(even though learning is a
lifetime experience) He then places them in min
istry. (typically they feel inadequate at first)
He then begins to prepare them for His next
assignment in
ministry. The most important part of Gods deve
lopment of a leader is in character.

(being who God
wants, comes before doing what God wants)
5
A Chronological time-line of your life
List all the significant people and events that
helped shape your life and ministry.
(Birth, family, church, influencers,
mileposts) Next, look at your time-line and see
if you can group several of these significant
pieces into phases of development in your life.
(ie childhood,
education, 1st ministry, etc) Determine what Go
d was doing in you in each of these phases.

The New Testament Model
is the Servant Leadership
of Jesus!

Jesus came as a Servant
Servant Leadership
is the Biblical Model
  • who although He existed in the form of God did
    not regard equality with god a thing to be
    grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of
    a bond-servant and being made in the likeness of
    men
  • - Philippians 26-7

10
Servant Leadership
is the Biblical Model
  • The Servant Principle is Christs revolutionary
    way of the heart which challenges our core
    beliefs and values, rivets our affections on
    Jesus Himself, and compels us to live and love
    like Him.
  • - Rick Ferguson The Servant Principle

The servant heart is not part of our original
equipment.
11
Servant Leadership
is the Biblical Model
  • A servant leader is one who has been called,
    transformed, gifted, and empowered by God, to
    serve Him and the needs of others, before their
    own concerns.
  • - Ed Gilman, 2004

You cannot become a servant leader through
self-improvement books or seminars, God must
transform you, but you must surrender your will
to Him unconditionally.
12
Servant Leadership
is the Biblical Model
  • Only through a life of service can we truly
    fulfill our purpose in this world and find
    absolute meaning in life.
    Rick
    Ferguson, The Servant Principle

Servant leaders dont focus on pleasing others,
they focus on serving their Master.
13
Servant Leadership
is the Biblical Model
  • Becoming a servant leader requires more than
    just outward behavior. It is an inside job. Its
    about the heart. Changing someones thinking is
    important, but it isnt enough. Jesus message
    is not just for the mind, its directed at the
    heart. Jesus wants us to be before we do
    anything. Its a character issue.
  • - Blanchard, Hybels, Hodges- Leadership by the
    Book

14
Servant Leadership
is the Biblical Model
  • God is not necessarily looking for leaders, at
    least not in the sense we generally think of
    leaders. He is looking for servants.
  • Spiritual leaders do not try to satisfy the
    goals and ambitions of the people they lead but
    those of the God they serve.
  • Jesus has established the model for Christian
    leaders. It is not found in his methodology.
    Rather, it is seen in his absolute obedience to
    the Fathers will.
  • Henry Richard Blackaby- Spiritual
    Leadership

15
Servant Leadership
is the Biblical Model
  • The Bible doesnt give us detailed instructions
    covering every issue of leadership. If it did,
    some would find a way to manipulate it.
  • Instead, the Bible approaches leadership from the
    character viewpoint in servant leadership.
  • Our culture approaches leadership from the
    viewpoint of control, taking charge, and being
    the boss.
  • The Bible teaches that those who are
    servant-leaders assume leadership only if they
    are called there to serve in the best interest
    of others.

Seven Principles of Servant Leadership
Jesus on Leadership- Gene Wilkes
17
1- Servant leaders humble themselves and wait for
God to exalt them. Luke 147-11
No one can be a servant without a master.
You must decide whether or not to design you lif
e after Jesus or the best thinking the world has
to offer. You cannot serve two masters. (Matthe
w 624) You must answer the question, who is m
aster of my life? Kingdom leaders are people w
ho lead like Jesus. (Philippians 25-11)
Humility comes before honor- Proverbs 1533b
18
2- Servant leaders follow Jesus rather than seek
a position.
Mark 1032-40
Servant leadership is not about position or
power. Servant leaders are not created by givin
g commands, but by
obeying their Commander. Servant leaders yield
their will to Christs will,
the real leader of the church.
Servant leaders follow Jesus example in serving
others and
suffering on their behalf.

Servant leaders dont promote themselves, they
wait on Gods promotion.
19
3- Servant leaders give up personal rights to
find greatness in service to others.
Mark 1041-45
Servant leaders make Jesus Master in their life
and become servant to others. To lead in the Ki
ngdom of God is to serve others and to follow the
King. Jesus modeled what He called others to do
For even the Son of Man did not come to
be served, but to serve, and to give his life
as a ransom for many. Mark 1045
Jesus entire mission was to free others, not to
gain position for Himself.

20
4- Servant leaders can risk serving others
because they trust that God is
in control of their lives.
John 133
The servant leader knows their power comes from
God. Jesus redefined what leaders do leaders m
eet needs. Jesus modeled what He had been teach
ing about servant leadership when He left the
head table to assume the role of a servant and
washed their feet.

21
5- Servant leaders take up Jesus towel of
servanthood to meet the needs of others.
John 134-11
Servant leaders do not lack resolve or insight
and do not waver in doing their Masters wishes.
Leaders sometimes must reveal a need before meet
ing it. Servant leaders may have to humble them
selves before those who will become their enemies.

22
6- Servant leaders share their responsibility and
authority with others to meet a greater need.
Acts 61-6
Servant leaders cannot give their leadership
away, but they do share or
delegate both rewards and responsibility to
others. Jesus shared His authority and responsi
bility with others in order to spread the gospel
around the world. Servant leaders know they are
most effective when they trust others to work
with them.

23
7- Servant leaders multiply their leadership by
empowering others to lead. Exodus
1817-23
Paul multiplied his leadership when he mentored
and entrusted young Timothy, and then told him to
multiply his ministry through others.
Jesus multiplies His leadership by empowering H
is disciples with the Holy Spirit.
Servant leaders understand that empowerment alwa
ys comes before mission.
24
A Servant Leader
Is A Coach
  • Their main aim is the best interest of those they
    coach.
  • They get personal satisfaction from watching the
    personal growth and development of the person
    being coached.
  • They address issues such as
    empowerment and enhancement
    of the person.

25
A Servant Leader Is A
Coach
  • They assess the situation by asking questions,
    listening, and being process-oriented.
  • They have a loving care for those they coach.
  • They enable rather than tell the answer, and
    encourage rather than discourage.

26
A Servant Leader
Is A Coach
  • They focus them on self-discovery and follow
    through with implementation
  • They come alongside in a
    covenant relationship as
    a partner.
  • They are conceptual and feeling,
    and focus on Biblical principles.

27
A Servant Leader
Is A Coach
The servant leader COACH, is to help their
people produce good results by modeling and
encouraging the behaviors and values that are
aligned with a shared vision.
Blanchard, Hybels, Hodges- Leadership by the
Book

World Says God Says
  • Self Pride Humility
  • Success Obedience
  • Professionalism Servanthood
  • Competition Service
  • Maintain Rights No Rights
  • Excellence Christlikeness
  • Self Preservation Die to Self
  • Accomplishments Character
  • Happiness in Acquiring Happiness in Giving
  • Eat, Drink, Be Merry Seek First The Kingdom
    of God

29
A Servant Model
  • When we think of a Biblical model for servant
    leadership we must turn to Mark 1042-43.
  • Jesus displayed servant leadership in many ways,
    but perhaps the most graphic was the time He took
    the basin and the towel and washed his disciples
    feet.
  • Jesus message was not just for the mind, it was
    for the heart. His underlying message was about
    character change. Rather than asking us to do
    kind things, He wants us to become kind
    people. Then all our actions will be motivated
    by kindness.

30
A Servant Model
  • Jesus mandated a form of leadership thats
    radically different from the model were usually
    most familiar with He showed us the true
    leadership starts on the inside with a servant
    heart, then moves outward to serve others
    character in the form of a servant heart precedes
    the use of effective leadership methods.
  • - Blanchard, Hybels, Hodges Leadership by the
    Book

31
Two Kinds of Leaders
  • People who are leaders first.
  • They naturally want to lead. They will try to
    control, make decisions, and give orders. They
    are driven to lead and want to be in charge. They
    are possessive about their leadership position.
    They dont like feedback, its threatening to
    them.
  • People who are servants first.
  • They assume leadership only if that is the best
    way they can serve. They are called to lead
    rather than driven, because they naturally want
    to be helpful. They are not possessive about
    leadership and willingly give it up if someone
    more effective is available. They love feedback
    because they see it as helping them serve better.
    They can lead or follow.

32
Servant Leaders Lead by Example

es people to follow the leader in the attainment
of goals.

Servant Ministry
  • We must remember that our commander-in-chief
    is Christ Jesus Our Lord. God has placed us in
    situations according to His will and His
    purposes. In other words, we dont wait to see
    how our employer treats us before deciding how
    hard to work. Rather, we work as if Christ were
    our overseer, and in reality He is. God places us
    where He wants us to make a difference as His
    servants.
  • - Henry Blackaby The Man God Uses

37
Definition of Ministry
  • Ministry takes place when divine resources meet
    human needs through loving channels to the glory
    of God.
  • Warren W. Wiersbe On Being
    a Servant of God

38
Servant Leadership
  • God does not ask leaders to dream big dreams for
    Him or to solve the problems that confront them.
    He asks leaders to walk with Him so intimately
    that, when He reveals what is on His agenda, they
    will immediately adjust their lives to His will
    and the results will bring Glory to God.
  • Spiritual leaders dont sell vision they share
    what God has revealed to them and trust that the
    Holy Spirit will confirm that same vision in the
    hearts of their people.

Henry Richard Blackaby Spiritual Leadership

Servant Leaders Equippers
of the Saints
  • Servants lead out of relationship, not by
    coercion.
  • Servants lead by support, not by control.
  • Servants lead by developing others, not by doing
    all the ministry.

40
Servant Leaders Equippers
of the Saints
  • Leaders with servant hearts have genuine
    humility, but they also have confidence. They
    dont think less of themselves, they just think
    about themselves less.
  • - Blanchard, Hybels, Hodges-
    Leadership by the Book

41
Servant Leaders
Equippers of the Saints
  • In a smaller church of up to 200 members the
    pastor can do all the work, and many do. But such
    a church will not be able to grow past that point
    without lay ministry. Pastors of growing
    churches, whether they be large or small, know
    how to motivate their laypeople, how to create
    structures which permit them to be active
    productive, how to guide them into meaningful
    avenues of Christian service.
  • Peter Wagner- Your Church Can Grow

Servant Leaders
Equippers of the Saints

An effective leader accomplishes the work
through others. The task is too great for one
person. It is more important for the leader of a
growing church to produce other leaders than to
perform personal ministry.
Carl George How to Break Growth Barriers
