I started studying at Pillar Seminary at one of my lowest times of my life. At that time I had been living overseas as a missionary for over 5 years, and I was burned out in ministry. During those years we had opened our home to Thai children and lived in community. We hosted a weekly home group, and I was also a teacher at a Thai preschool. I knew it was time for me to transition out of these responsibilities, and get much needed rest. A good friend had recommended to me to consider taking a class at Pillar. She told me to do it just for myself and my own spiritual growth. I would recommend Pillar Seminary for those who are weary and done with ministry. Pillar professors will accept, lead, and guide you on a new path of instruction. You may feel nervous or overwhelmed with life but Pillar staff will work with you. Taking a class could change your life, get you out of your rut, and fill you with hope. Click here to read the whole testimony!

True spiritual leadership is the servant leadership of Jesus Christ and Paul. It has as its source not expert power or personal power, nor resource power or positional power but spiritual power "

Why the Debate?

The above quote has spawned debates in churches, boardrooms, classrooms, and chat rooms. It is also written about in journals, articles, and blogs. The nature of the debate hinges on the ideological and philosophical framework from which leadership is deployed. Leadership is a word that has varied meanings depending on the context it is used. It is reasonable to say that there is a vast difference between leadership approaches and techniques for the broader society and leadership in the church. Ultimately, the debate stems from using secular leadership approaches in the church. Is the secular approach a viable solution for the church?
