Pete Scazzero is founder and Senior Pastor at New Life Fellowship Church, Queens, New York. He invites the reader to prayerfully consider five insights he has gleaned from Matthew's gospel, which reveal Jesus' life-changing leadership.
"Leading people in the name of Jesus is complex, demanding great wisdom and discernment. I have dedicated my adult life to the study of leadership. I have written books on leadership, read innumerable books on the topic, and attended more than my share of leadership conferences. But for the last 18 months, I have been meditating on the radical leadership of Jesus in Matthew’s gospel. Considering Jesus as a leader has shaken me. The Holy Spirit has challenged me to honestly look at the Western church model of leadership that lives in me more than I care to admit (i.e., bigger, better, more, faster), and invited me to drink more deeply of Jesus’ life and radical leadership."
