Family Genes Part 3: Leadership

Steve Lucas & Shane Good

Ephesians 4:7, 11-13

What is leadership and how is it to be expressed within the body of Christ? God's heart is that the fullness of Christ be expressed through the church, which is His body, to the world around us. Leadership is one part of that. It is a gift given to individuals to be exercised as a needed part of the body in order to express this fullness of Christ. Leadership is not a position, office or status that advantages one person over others. Part of our family DNA is that we embrace team leadership that is not hierarchical, domineering or authoritarian.
