Baptist cleric tasks leaders, christians on leadership
Rev. Dele Oluwole, Registrar of the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary, Ogbomoso, has called on Christian leaders in all organisations to emulate Jesus Christ’s model of leadership, to improve their workplace relationship and management.
Speaking at the Christian Workers’ Summit of the Lagos West Baptist Conference, held at the Triumphant Baptist Church, Akowonjo, Lagos, to round off the church’s last year’s activities, the cleric noted that Nigeria is plagued by poor leadership, stressing that the challenge has also crept into the church.
With theme, ‘Servant Leadership –The Godly Method of Church Leadership,’ Oluwole drawing his homily from John 13: 1–17, disclosed that Jesus Christ knowingly bequeathed the servant-leader model of leadership to the church, because He wanted church leaders to effectively and efficiently manage the church and other issues that may come out from it.
He noted that if countries across globe, as well as organisation could adopt the model, draw from its lessons, it would boost the proper management of human and natural resources at all levels in the society.
The Conference President, Rev. Samuel Olugbenga Oladiran and the Conference Chairman, Rev. Tunji Bamgbose, chaired different segments of the programme.
