Beyond Servant Leadership
Source: Regent University
The author argues that the servant leadership model that has been widely adopted by Christians has not been an unmixed blessing. Servant leadership in its secular form is based on non-Christian secular and religious ideas. But even in its Christianized form it is reflective of a heterodox and distorted Christology, which it in turn helps to perpetuate. The author attempts to identify the elements of Christology that modern evangelicalism and its version of servant leadership neglect. Next, the author endeavors to rehabilitate these neglected aspects of Christology in order to formulate a new model of leadership that the author calls martyria, a biblical term that the author briefly explicates.
