Enduring Values for Leadership Development

Drawn from a Study of 1st Timothy

By Allen Quist 

Enduring Values for Leadership DevelopmentHis name was Jonathan, a young man with hopes and dreams for the future as a pastor or perhaps, as a business person in a leadership role in the church. Jonathan struggled with a variety of leadership styles he witnessed within the body of believers in which he worshiped. These differing styles seemed to evidence differing values in the lives of those leaders. Like many, Jonathan searched for answers to his question, “are there enduring values to steer leaders of God's church?”

In his first letter to Timothy, Paul argues there are fundamental values that should drive the heart of church leaders. Once we determine what those values should be we will need to assure our future leaders develop them. The text of 1st Timothy analyzed through the lens of cultural analysis will provide timeless and enduring leadership values and expected leadership behaviors which should provide a platform for leadership development today. Paul's standards for leaders are just as applicable today as they were in Paul's time.
