Our main goal in teaching spiritual leadership is to help Christian leaders. We have talked with hundreds of discouraged men and women who were ready to resign their leadership positions, but they retained a heartfelt desire to serve God effectively. As we helped them examine the Scriptures to discover God's agenda, leaders from all walks of life have found encouragement and direction for their lives and their organizations. We are not teaching those in full-time Christian work, although those in vocational ministry will certainly benefit from the truths we discuss. The guidelines we present are for all Christians who seek to be spiritual leaders. Holding a leadership position in a Christian organization does not make one a spiritual leader. Spiritual leadership is not an occupation: it s a calling. Christian businesspeople, physicians, educators, politicians, and parents--all ought to be spiritual leaders. More and more people in "secular" occupations are taking their calling as spiritual leaders seriously, and they are impacting the world and extending God's kingdom.
Only when we understand leadership in light of God's calling on our lives will we be equipped to lead effectively. According to the Bible, God is not necessarily looking for leaders, at least not in the sense we generally think of leaders. He is looking for servants (Isa. 59:16; Ezek. 22:30). When God finds men and women willing to bee molded into his servants, the possibilities are limitless. People are looking for someone to lead them into God's purposes God's way. They need leaders who truly believe God will do what he says. People will follow spiritual leaders who understand God's agenda and who know how to move them on to it.
