“The way of the Christian leader is not the way of upward mobility in which our world has invested so much, but the way of downward mobility ending on the cross.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership

Henri J.M. Nouwen
“The Christian leader of the future is called to be completely irrelevant and to stand in this world with nothing to offer but his or her own vulnerable self. That is the way Jesus came to reveal God's love. The great message that we have to carry, as ministers of God's Word and followers of Jesus, is that God loves us not because of what we do or accomplish, but because God has created and redeemed us in love and has chosen us to proclaim that love as the true source of all human life.”

“The needs are endless but our God has endless resources; the wounds are deep but you serve as a healing balm; the flexibility to meet those needs is limited by your willingness to dream big; your worth is not defined by waiting tables but rather enhanced by being identified with the one who washed feet; your victory certain and calling in Him secure and “if God is for us, who can ever be against us” (Romans 8:31)?”
Jonah Books.com, The Deacon

“Jesus was always on the front-lines washing dirty feet. Humility soon is shelved in ministry and we start thinking to much of ourselves. It is hard to effectively minister in Christ name when we look down on someone, but if we are washing their feet we look up to them giving them value and worth.”

Lee Ann B. Marino
“We need to be careful about imposing our belief systems upon non-believers. Our job is to preach Christ unto them, and to bring them to a point where they want to come into fellowship with God and His Kingdom. When dealing with new believers, we must treat them with respect, guidance, and inform them about things they may be doing that are wrong, without jumping to conclusions. Instead of assuming things or bullying them into positions…handle things with maturity. Take people aside and instruct in matters, rather than disgracing people publically or reporting them here and there. Treat people the way you would like to be treated, showing where things are wrong, and why rather than expecting people to pick up on it through subtle behaviors and nasty attitudes.”
Lee Ann B. Marino

Ikechukwu Joseph
“Every leadership role has a character driving force that will fulfill or decimate the ultimate purpose of the role.”
Ikechukwu Joseph, Jesus Christ Our Example: The Exemplary Leader

“We do not have to believe something is right- to believe a person has a right to choose it. God doesn't force us to serve him. It is a freewill choice we make, so why in the name of all that is holy and right do we think we can force other people to live by our particular brand of religion? We are commanded to Love if we are Christ servers.”
Linda Wells~Harr
