The Hebraic leadership is a blueprint map of cosmology:teaching and training humble Semitic Christian leaders- world navigation in exiled deployment.

Hebraic Leadership is centered on seeking first the Kingdom of God (righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit) and His righteousness. Seeking the tangible place- New Jerusalem, God’s will be done and His kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. As a friend of God and a friend of man: It is to leave native country, to embark on a journey of faith,responding to the call of God (forsaking all). To journey the Way to the Kingdom and undergo the process of becoming.

A time-based leadership: understanding the origin, destination and fellow comrades oriented towards Jerusalem with biblical sight; honing the skill of clarity and wisdom founded on the fear of God, YHWH,and His Word. Deployment is crisis focused to confront chaos,leading people through it; beginning in one’s own community into the Near East. To go ahead, braving danger and confusion; guided by encouragement in God’s Word through conflict.

It is to be a student of the Near East and beyond the Near East to discern: one’s individual path (faith journey) in this world and encounter faith for everyone in revelation of God in a shared mission- historically, culturally and spiritually. Relating in a mutually dynamic heart with the Near East: to help and be helped.

Hebraic Leadership is the application of the five pillars of the Hebraic tradition:
1. Deity,
2. Personality,
3. History,
4. Plurality, and
5. Responsibility
To navigate duality in history and in oneself before God’s eyes. Hebraic Leadership is tangible, the leader is: someone others want to follow, who gets others where they need to go, who makes good (godly) decisions,who receives timely direction, a unique responder, a conductor of self and others in God’s presence and power. To be a disciple: A student and vehicle of influence of God’s Word.

Leadership prioritizing one’s personal relationship with God. Practicing the sabbath, praying and fasting to seek the baseline to see the world truly and to return to service. Ministry (to change hearts and minds), promoting Redemption and embracing politics as a gift from God using tools appropriately. To trust and take heart in God who holds the future and His sovereignty over it all, whilst affirming one’s own responsibility.
