Every Christian knows stories of Christians or local churches that have been let down by either their pastors or key lay leaders. Every Christian also knows stories of how key leaders have been used to bring godliness, growth and Christian vision to the local church. How leaders lead, who leads and what they are called to do is therefore fundamental to the life of any local church. Every single Christian is and should be interested in the subject of Christian leadership. Today we will find out that God has given every local church instructions about how they are to be governed.
