Reply To: After taking this course, in your own words, please define Hebraic leadership and what it means to you.

Clay Shackelford

A Hebraic leader is someone who is a follower of Jesus first, and a leader of others second. As we talked about in the course, Jesus talked about his faith as a path, and early Christians called this path the Way. So, as a Hebraic leader, I must first realize that Jesus is going before me and walking beside me. Only when I’m in a relationship with Him am I able to lead others to follow this man.

Once we realize who we are on this path with we must then realize where Jesus is going. Where is he trying to take us? What’s his destination (after his relationship with us)? His destination is His Kingdom. His Kingdom has already begun but it’s just getting started. When we are confident in who we are with and where He is taking us we can confidently invite others on this path (“the Way”) towards the Kingdom of Heaven.
