Perhaps one of the greatest responsibilities on Earth is to lead the Church, we are supposed to be a representation of Heaven on earth and how God as Father leads. Yet tragically there has been much taught and written about church leaderships that has caused more harm than help.

We believe strongly in both the words and actions of Jesus when it comes to what true leadership looks like:

Mark 10:43-45

Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

John 13:3-5

Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under His power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

What the world needs is more servants who will take the lead and more leaders who will be willing to serve. Links’ training aims to help leaders move from serving out of pride and fear, to a place where they are leading with love and humility. Through both practical and spiritual skills we have seen church communities grow from strength to strength as a culture of serving one another is established.
