MetadataShow full item record
This project sought to prepare the strategic level staff, volunteers, and key ministry partnership leaders of globalLead to be able to more fully understand and apply soul care principles for leaders from the life of Christ. Chapter 1 presents the history and ministry context of globalLead and the goals of this project. Chapter 2 provides exegesis of six passages of Scripture (Matt 4:1-11, Matt 26-36-46, Mark 1:32-39, Luke 5:15-16, Eph 1:3-14, Eph. 3:14-21) to show that Scripture speaks of the stress and temptations of Jesus and how he responded through His Trinitarian union that is exemplary for the soul care of Christian leaders today. The Ephesian passages shine light onto how the example of Jesus was looked upon for those in leadership in Ephesus. Chapter 3 explores the additional literature based upon the fact that Christian ministry leaders face challenges from their human nature, their organization structures, and their unique calling that puts them at an incredibly high risk for burnout. Chapter 4 describes the project itself, recounting the content and teaching methodology of the leadership development curriculum. Chapter 5 evaluates the efficacy of the project based on completion of the specified goals. Ultimately, this project seeks to ensure that Christian leaders globally are placing a priority on their own soul care through the example of Christ for the sake of the impact and longevity of the global church.
