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

Max Pleban

Hebraic Leadership’s primary quality is seeking God. As Abraham modeled, seeking God often means venturing into the unknown when one is called to do so. Second, Hebraic leadership is serving your fellow neighbor. Leading in your current spheres of influence is the prerequisite to leading in the Near East. We are not called to hide away and practice Christianity on our own, but when “two or three are gathered in my name, I am among them.” Hebraic leadership requires community and investment in those around you. Finally, Hebraic leaders must be prudent. As Abraham modeled in the story of Lot, contextualizing conflict and dividing lands for a peaceful solution was necessary for the Lord’s will to be carried out. Utilizing power, and not denigrating it, Abraham achieved certain levels of justice for the terrestrial earth. This leader must be wise and discerning in troubling times, yet always direct his compass on the north star of seeking the will of God.
