Elders’ ShopNotes Volume 3: Leadership Principles
By: Chuck Gianotti & Jack Spender
This particular volume is comprised of essays on the topic of leadership in the local church. This collection of essays, third in this series, builds on the first two. We are now turning our attention to principles of leadership. Leadership is important for any and all organizations, whether church, para-church, non-profit, government or business.
While many principles found in Scripture are helpful in all these areas, we are particularly interested in how leadership works in the local church. The local body of Christ is a unique organization, because it is also a living oraganism. A common analogy in the New Testament for the church is that of a body, the body of Christ. We are all members of Christ, and are brothers and sisters in Him, with God as our father. We are connected in the local church not along earthly bloodlines, but along the spiritual bloodline of our Lord Jesus Christ. So the principles of leadership that concern us here must take into consideration the family nature of the church.
