Not lord it over others … Leadership by example … Humble … As a child … As the younger … Least … Last … No force … No selfish ambition … No reputation … Human … Obedient … Death on the Cross … Resurrection.
These are characteristics of Jesus Christ that all true believers can mimic and live out, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
They are also characteristics of the minister of Jesus Christ, if ministry is to be done Jesus-style.
Author, preacher, Bible teacher, and long-time pastor Gayle Erwin helps us with some of the nuts and bolts of following in the steps of our Great Pastor (The Jesus Style, The Father Style, The Spirit Style, Not Many Mighty, The Body Style, Handbook for Servants).
- Pastoring with an others-centered style of leadership
- Learning how to understand the place of Humor, Anger, Authority, Freedom, Forgiveness, Worship, Fear, and Feelings in ministry
- Discover how Jesus dealt with manipulative people, and how to avoid these pitfalls
- See why it's not really necessary to 'defend' Jesus, at least not in the ways we might think
It's a mini school of ministry to have a convo with Gayle Erwin. Hope you can join us for episode 99 of Strength for Today's Pastor.
