Defining Spiritual Leadership, Pt. 1
October 23, 2011 Speaker: Brent Small
Topic: Leadership Passage: 1 Thessalonians 2:1–2:6
This sermon podcast series on 1 Thessalonians chapter 2, Pastor Brent Small offers two of seven principles of defining spiritual leadership as modeled by the Apostle Paul in Thessalonica.
Moving into chapter 2 of First Thessalonians, the Apostle Paul shifts his focus from the Thessalonians faith to the godly conduct and manner with which Paul, Silas and Timothy had ministered the gospel in Thessalonica. Paul’s description of their ministerial conduct served to strengthen their faith revealing that it was built on an authentic message delivered with authentic godly spiritual conduct. As Pastor Brent expounds the first 6 verses of chapter 2, he develops a definition of spiritual leadership and also identifies “7” principles of spiritual leadership. In this message Pastor Brent delivers the first two principles of spiritual leadership as modeled by Paul.
