Christian Influence and Leadership
This is a course about Christian leadership. No doubt about that. But throughout the course I have mostly used the more generic term “Christian influence” instead of “Christian leadership” to make sure that the net is cast wide. I happen to believe that the call to Christian faith is a call to leadership influence and so the passions described in this course apply to all Christians, not just those who have formal leadership roles or who see themselves as leaders.
