The Gift of Leadership

Dear brothers and sisters, honor those who are your leaders in the Lord’s work. They work hard among you and give you spiritual guidance.

1 Thessalonians 5:12

The Holy Spirit gives the spiritual gift of leadership to some in the church to care for God’s people and lead them into deeper relationship with Christ and each other. They are able to accomplish many different tasks and objectives as they lead, but they will always lead relationally and with a deep concern for the well-being of others. They are “visionary” and less concerned with mun- dane details than those with the spiritual gift of administration. They go to great lengths to protect those under their care and are well-equippedtoleadthroughcrisissituations.
