Few areas are more significant than the need for and priority of survival.
Leadership survival is a matter of extreme urgency for the church today.
Leaders struggle to survive challenges in matters of faith and practice.
Leaders must survive false accusations to their character by dissenters.
Leaders must develop survival skills against forces that would divide Christians.
The idea is often expressed, “Its lonely at the top.” While spiritual leadership is not about being at the top, leaders in the Lord’s church still face a measure of loneliness.
Perhaps this is why so few are willing to accept the role and responsibility.
