John MacArthur: Servant of the Word and Flock

by drbeck on March 28, 2012

On a trip to the Shepherd’s conference, I finished reading Iain Murray’s John MacArthur: Servant of the Word and Flock.

I highly recommend it for every Christian! In the first few pages, Murray lists 5 characteristics of an evangelical leader. How do you and your church leaders match up?

1. An evangelical leader is one who leads and guides the lives of others by the Scripture
2. An evangelical leader inspires the affection of followers because they learn Christ through him, and see something of Christ in him
3. An evangelical leader is a man prepared to be unpopular
4. An evangelical leader is one who is awake to the dangers of the times
5. An evangelical leader will not direct attention to himself.
