#27 – Balanced Team Leadership
Every local church urgently needs healthy balanced leadership. It is generally agreed that Scripture presents a plural godly mature masculine leadership (1 Timothy 3, Titus 1), and that their role is to guide the congregation in such a way as to satisfy the desires of Christ, the head of the Church. The personal qualities of these men are listed in the New Testament, and their responsibilities and manner of work are also described in some detail.
Leaving aside important though technical issues such as how you call these men (if anything), how they become leaders, to what degree they are publicly recognised and if some are (or should be) more influential than others, what I wish to show here, is that if these men saw themselves not so much as a group but as a team of leading brothers, they would be more effective in carrying out their God given task.
