Paul�s employment of the elder structure of government for the local church is clear, practical evidence against clericalism because the eldership is nonclerical in nature. If leadership can be developed, then what do you do with that knowledge? Women are entering seminaries in greater numbers while the number of men does not increase as rapidly.

Leaders can point out obvious problems arising in certain relationships, but it is up to the individual to pick his or her own friends. As we were thinking along those lines, I decided to search the Scripture to find out is leadership different in God's Kingdom, and if so, how different? We all have, through a combination of many factors beyond our control, very different positions in life and society. Local Pastor – Under delegated authority of Pastor [Name Removed] (1 Timothy 1:2-3, Titus 1:4-5) “Jesus was a perfect example for us in the way He totally submitted and came under the authority of God the Father during his life on earth.

[41] [42] Likewise, the encyclical of Pope Pius IX, Singulari Quidem, states in a similar vein, "There is only one true, holy, Catholic Church, which is the Apostolic Roman Church.

The church visible, in this same view, consists of all those who visibly join themselves to a profession of faith and gathering together to know and serve the head of the church, Jesus Christ. Barnabas even decided to go a separate way to Paul. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.

For the purposes of this blog, church leadership can be defined as the process of influencing other people to work together to accomplish a desired purpose.
