As leadership and the Body of Christ ventures into outward focused ministries and develop inward ministerial structures to hold the impending harvest, we find a deficit in consistent faithfulness and service from pure hearts in leaders, as well as congregants. There is a vacuum of heart-based leadership development where we examine the motives and intents of the heart in order to labor in purity with one another that all men see the love of God as a bright light shining in darkness. True leadership is the salt of the earth and the light of the world. A leader's unrestrained service exemplifies the magnitude of God's love for man. Christ gave his all for us all, in order to show us all...God's heart. The Light of the servanthood of Christ must be seen by all men in order to build individual lives. It is time for leaders to reexamine themselves and become strengthened their resolve to serve the Lord without restraint, and thereby give our lives fully to Kingdom purposes.

Our Character at Work Success from the Heart of Servant Leadership

Yes, but they require a difficult, but doable, change of heart and mind. I know there is pushback against this. Some argue that servant leadership will never be widely practiced because it requires such dramatic change.

Many leaders need to win (and thus humiliate others), need to get their way (and thus threaten others), need to be seen in a positive light (and thus blame others), need to give good news to those they report to (and thus intimidate others into fudging reports when necessary), and need to be seen as powerful in every setting (and thus speak condescendingly to others). Our Character at Work demonstrates that leadership is more effective and ethical when done in servant-led ways. How do you become a servant leader? It begins with your heart… Put everything you have into the care of your heart -- the hidden, causative, motivational you -- for everything you do flows from it. It is the real source of your outward life. It determines what your life amounts to. (Proverbs 4:23, author's paraphrase) Our Character at Work leads you on a personal journey, guiding you to an interior renovation of heart and soul that produces genuine and consistent servant leaders.

This is a collection of poetry that comes from the Holy Spirit through me. The vast majority of them were written as I sat in church listening to my Pastor speak the word into our hearts. Others came from visiting pastors and some from my own heart as the Lord laid things there that he wanted me to say. As the first poem in the book says I consider this a gift that the Lord has given me to help others to come to Him or to guide them on their path. My prayer is that what you see here gives you what you need to become complete in Him. Linda Burbank was born and raised in the area of Detroit, Michigan. She grew up involved in theatre and dance and has been writing poetry since she was a child. She has also written and published a short story and a children's book. She graduated from two courses in writing children's literature and also graduated from The Institute of Theology by Extension, or INSTE as it is known. She loves to read, sing specials at church and spend time with her family. She is married and has one grown son.

Leadership is a subject that has gained impressive visibility in the past two decades. The number of books, monographs and articles, as well as seminars, devoted to the development of one's leadership skills has been almost exponential growth. This study is an attempt to forge a full-orbed theology of Christian leadership grounded in the teaching of Scripture. What emerges from tracing the theme of leadership through the biblical record is a servanthood pattern, one that is wholly distinct from prevailing secular models. Our exposition begins with the biblical language of the servant, the term of choice for those great leaders used of God to further his saving purposes in the world. Eleven Old Testament and five New Testament leaders are profiled. The portrait of Jesus Christ focuses on three motifs that governed his training of the twelve for kingdom ministry. The Pauline letters are mined for those convictions that governed Paul's practice of leadership, both of his mission team and of the faith communities that emerged from that mission. The treatment of each leader, from Joseph to Paul, begins with a series of preliminary questions and concludes with a mini-profile that correlates the biblical data with these questions. The final chapter offers a summary profile of the servant leader, one whose character, motives and agenda align with the divine purposes. Though designed as a textbook for upper level college and seminary courses on leadership, the book's readable format is ideal for churches and parachurch organizations in their leadership training programs. The author's prayer is that this work will serve as a catalyst to call God's people back to Scripture and thereby raise up a whole new generation of authentic servant-leaders.

Engaged Leadership

At the heart of servant leadership is the focus on placing the needs of followers before the personal interests of the leader and intentionally working toward raising additional servants. Matteson and Irving (2006) contend that, ...

This professional book examines the concept of engaged leadership. Specifically, it focuses on the need for leaders in personal and professional realms, for-profit and non-profit, to understand the importance of engagement in order to achieve enhanced satisfaction and motivation among stakeholders (including employees, shareholders, investors, supporters, customers, suppliers, the community, competitors, family, and partners), and hence, an augmented level of designed thinking, which leads to increased innovation and on-going leadership development. Divided into three sections—engaged leadership development at the personal level, implementation at the organizational level, and manifestation in practice—this book provides professionals, practitioners and policy makers as well as students with the tools and skills to lead actively and conscientiously and help them understand the importance of creativity and compassion for development. Engaged leadership operates on the fundamental principle that leaders have to first and foremost perceive themselves as leaders, and then engage in design thinking, as they will need to develop strategies to reach, encourage, and positively appeal to these stakeholder groups. Leadership is neither limited to those holding formal managerial position, nor to any particular setting. Leaders can be found everywhere, in all layers of society. Leadership is only possible, however, if one dares to perceive and define oneself as a leader. And only when leadership is adopted as a reality within one’s personal perception, can engaged leadership be applied. Featuring contributions from academics, scholars, and professionals from around the world, each providing cases, interactive questions and reflective notes, this book will be of interest to professionals, practitioners, policy makers, students and scholars interested in creative leadership, management, organizational behavior, and governance.
