theology of leadership
In this essay, you will create your own theology of leadership by comparing and contrasting the biblical expressions of shepherd and servant leadership. A theology of “_________” is the practice of looking at scripture and dentifying, describing, and synthesizing what scripture says (not what we want it to say) regarding this topic and how it relates to Christian practice.
Two important themes revealed in scripture that relate to leadership are the ideas of the Shepherd and Servant. In most Chrisitan circles we are well aware of the charge to be servant leaders. However, there is also a charge in scripture to be a Shepherd leader. In this paper, I want you to first identify the biblical mandate for Shepherd and Servant leadership and then compare and contrast the essential nature of these approaches to leadership. These two approaches are not antagonistic nor diametrically opposed to each other, but they do frame leadership in different and related pictures.
Make sure your analysis of scripture is true to the text and not interpreted based on opinion or whim. It is highly recommended that you refer to Bible commentaries in the Jerry Falwell Library for your research (ebook version).
Your essay must be exactly 4–5 pages and include as many biblical references as needed, but do not rely on long block quotes to make your point. Also include applicable references to textbooks and additional research from scholarly commentaries, etc. This paper must be written in current Turabian format if you are a School of Divinity student
