There is no lack of leadership theories in circulation today. While they are not without value, as Christians we want to ground all that we do in the Word of God. Fortunately for us, Scripture has much to say about leadership. Pastor and author Larry Osborne turns to 1 Peter 5:1–4 to help church leaders understand what it looks like to shepherd those God has placed in their care. With down-to-earth and relatable teaching, Larry unpacks timeless life lessons from thorough biblical understanding that will help you better grasp the example God desires you to set as a leader.
