Healthy Spiritual Leadership

 

Modified excerpt from the book Built on the Rock: The Healthy Congregation by Ted Kober[1]

 

The church is unlike any other club or service organization. She is the body of Christ. Thus, her leaders need to be equipped spiritually to serve Christ and His mission.

Cover BUILT ON THE ROCK.png

A spiritually healthy church depends upon spiritually healthy leadership. Without regular nourishment from God’s Word, the church loses its distinction as Christ’s body among her members. Regular feeding on the Living Word is crucial for building up her leaders and sustaining the congregation’s health.

 

Leaders who provide spiritual care for members do so intentionally. They work together to assure that all members are regularly visited and prayed for. 

 

Professional church workers sacrifice in their service to the church. Just as the members they serve, they, too, need to be cared for and well fed. The lay leadership has the privilege and opportunity to minister to the ministers, so they can remain healthy together.
