There are roughly as many definitions of leadership as there are books, seminars, TED Talks, and blogs. While these resources can inspire and shape best practices, the bedrock foundation for leadership is Scripture. Jesus taught — and lived — that “whoever would be great among you must be your servant” (Mark 10:43). The Omnipotent Creator turned the world’s top-down power structure on its head and “did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, by taking the form of a servant” (Phil. 2:6–7). His ultimate act of service to humankind was taking our sin upon Himself, exchanging His life for our eternal life through His death and resurrection. “Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Phil. 2:9–11). “Equipping students for lifelong leadership and service” is at the core of Cedarville’s educational mission. This issue of Cedarville Magazine presents pictures of leadership as we seek to follow Christ’s example of leading by serving others.
