    Principles of servant leadership are discovered from the biblical text. Students will develop a personal plan to apply biblical principles and requirements for leadership in ministry. A self-evaluation of the student’s current role and leadership style will be completed. (2 credits) Professor’s Additional Comment For the Christian, all things should be spiritual. Leadership is no different. Whether we work in a secular job or in a ministry, God expects us to exemplify the leadership principles presented in the Scriptures and incarnated in the life of Christ. That is why this course starts with the assumption that we will approach it as those who are born again and controlled by the Spirit. Servant leadership may sound like a paradox. But, as you will soon find out, serving often involves leading and to lead means to serve. My prayer is that this study will forever change the way in which you see your ministry.
