Theme #3: Positional Leadership

“You can easily enough see how this kind of thing works by looking no further than your own body. Your body has many parts—limbs, organs, cells—but no matter how many parts you can name, you’re still one body. It’s exactly the same with Christ.” ~ 1 Corinthians 12:12, The Message

We must learn to lead “positionally” as servant leaders who are called to lead effective ministry teams that are centered upon Jesus Christ and that build His kingdom through strengthening and equipping the church.
