Show synopsis The principles behind leading others to serve Christ are international, intercultural, intergenerational, and timeless-just like the principles of Christianity itself. The methods of pastors and leaders often change, but principles never do. In Second-Mile Leadership Principles, pastor, missionary, and Christian leader Olin D. Boles delivers the founding principles of Christian leadership to church leaders and others looking to go the extra mile in spreading the Word of God. In his accessible and perceptive exploration of the principles of Christian leadership, Boles uses biblical passages to introduce and support each concept. He groups the concepts into sections, addressing everything from the call and the character to the reward of the second-mile Christian leader. The Bible is full of such examples-after all, it recounts in great detail the leadership of Jesus Christ, whose spirit and purpose should work through all leaders. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus challenged his followers to commit to going the second mile in their endeavors. Leaders who willingly accept this challenge and open their hearts to Christ's ministry will join the front line of Christian spiritual leadership, and they will continue the work of Jesus Christ.
