Spiritual Leadership Discussion Aid   (840 kb)
Spiritual leadership has its foundation in a Christ-surrendered life. A spiritual leader inspires others to be Christ-like in a nurturing, promoting, self-sacrificial manner. He has no tolerance for sin and readily assumes responsibility for error without attempting to escape accountability. Spiritual leadership rests on trust, integrity, and honesty.  This 24-lesson discussion aid walks both the new believer and seasoned veteran through the building blocks of our Christian experience.
