A Different Kind of Leader

Almost every call committee I know, when searching for a pastoral candidate, has identified what it hopes its future pastor will be able to do: preach, teach, lead worship, pray, visit, extend pastoral care, and so on. That makes a certain sense and aligns with how we often think of leadership — leaders are the people who do things, who get things done, who take actions on behalf of their organizations.
