Description

This plenary session argues that our practice of Biblical leadership should be shaped by a Biblical understanding of what the church is, what it is for and the God-given purpose of its leaders. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians answers these questions in a way that is profoundly challenging to the contemporary church. The indivisibility of discipleship and mission means that what is at stake in disciple-making leadership is nothing less than the God’s mission through His Church to reach lost Europeans. If we take seriously what Paul says, then our leadership and indeed our churches ought to look different.
