If a leader is a Christian, what difference does it make? Giant strides have been made in secular leadership theory toward a Christian viewpoint. Priority is now given to character as well as competence, accountability as well as power, transformation as well as transaction, and servanthood as well as success. But these qualities apply to secular as well as to Christian leadership. So, the question remains, What difference does it make? David McKenna finds the answer in the Incarnation of Jesus Christ--a divine act for him and a defining attitude for us. Philippians 2:11-15 sets the standard and gives the details. Your attitude should be the same as Jesus Christ means following his call to the cross, where we die to self and sacrifice all self-interest in position, power, and prestige in order to serve obediently, faithfully, and humbly for the good of others and the glory of God. Christ-centered leadership is not an extension of the highest and best of human leadership. Radical obedience to the call of Christ and utter dependence upon the Holy Spirit make a substantive difference. In the most practical terms, Incarnation continues in us when we live fully, lead freely, and go where he wants us to go.


David McKenna is the retired President of Spring Arbor University, Seattle Pacific University, and Asbury Theological Seminary. He is the author of thirty-five books ranging from The Communicator's Commentaries on Isaiah, Job, and Mark to The Leader's Legacy and Christ-Centered Higher Education, Retirement Is Not for Sissies, When Our Parents Need Us Most, and When God Laughs with Us: The Lighter Side of Leadership. He and his wife, Janet, celebrate sixty-two years of marriage and reside in Kirkland, Washington.
