I'd really like to see this

Christian leadership has a distinctive mode. Such leaders abandon any perceived advantages in status they might have to get alongside different community members in just the way they get alongside people to befriend and to convert them in the first place. Christian leaders build bridges and span divides although they court vulnerability by doing so. This is not leadership as the pagan world viewed it, hence the difficulties some of the Corinthians had in recognizing their real leaders and copying them. But without this type of leader it is clear that the Christian city as Paul built it will struggle.—Paul: An Apostle’s Journey, 180
