Our Bible verse for this episode is Psalm 37:5 which says, “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”

Our quote for this episode is from Phil Buckley. He said, “People will emulate leaders’ behaviors, believing they have silent permission to parrot actions demonstrated at the top of the power hierarchy.”

In this podcast, we are using as our texts three books: Spiritual Leadership: Moving People On To God’s Agenda by Henry and Richard Blackaby; Next Generation Leader, by Andy Stanley; and Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, by John Maxwell.

Romans 12:6 & 8 says, "We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is... leadership, let him govern diligently." 

Leaders in the first-century church had no model to follow and no traditions from which to draw. Consequently, they had no choice but to develop the structure of the church as they went along. As you might expect, the primary leadership responsibilities fell to the handful of men who had spent the most time with Jesus. That was fine in the early days. But as the church grew, it became impossible for the apostles to keep all the plates spinning. This growing tension created the need for broader leadership in the early church.
