David S. Young shows a biblical style of servant leadership and how it can be applied in concrete situations. He sees the spiritual dimension as key to renewal in the church. Servant leaders are attuned to God's movement and listen for God's direction to help a congregation find a plan for using the strengths of their church.
Servant leaders formulate a renewal plan and implement it through prayer, teamwork, and resources. They learn to handle hardship. They are involved in faith formation. They serve by the transforming springs of God and call others to renewal and service.
