Leaders live at a higher level. They arrive early and leave late. They give more because they care more.
What is a spiritual leader?
A spiritual leader pursues God wholeheartedly and subjugates their personal agenda to a Kingdom agenda. They lay down their lives in pursuit of a heavenly vision. (Acts 26:19)
Spiritual leaders go beyond the natural into the supernatural.
They model what it looks like to be fully devoted followers of Jesus.
