Steps to Becoming a Servant-Leader
Those individuals who desire a leadership role in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ must follow in His footsteps. That is, they must become servant-leaders.
They must live holy and sanctified lives-set apart for the Master's use.
In the world today, the Church attempts to get closer and closer into the world system without losing its effectiveness. In the apostles day, the Church attempted to get further and further away from the world system, and still be effective. We are losing our salt.
With the apostle John's words from 1 John 2:15-17 in mind, I have assembled this little handbook to remind the servant-leader that his walk is one of light and not darkness. That he is a book that will be read by all men, including those who walk under his ministry.

I liked this book very much. It is well written and organized. The writer, Charles Weber, has a style that is straight-forward and easy to understand. I felt all the information was useful, but Chapter 5 - Christian Character Qualities spoke to me in a very powerful way. This little book contains a large amount of useful teaching. I also liked how the author offered numerous scriptures as I believe that the bible is, of course, our authority for designing our walk. This is a book that cannot be read once, but once you read it, you will continually refer to it. Thank you Charles Weber!

We are all ministers¿
Charles Weber begins his book by defining salvation and offering six evidences of salvation. One of the most important chapters in this book emphasizes prayer. Weber identifies the five types of prayer: Praise, Thanksgiving, Confession, Intercession, and Petition. I found the chapter on Spiritual Fruits very interesting, since I had recently studied them.
A Little Guidebook for the Servant-Leader is a small book that is large on wisdom. Weber¿s style is easy to understand and read. I am not sure what I expected when I began reading this book. The title made me think the focus was for Pastors, Deacons, or Elders; however, what I found inside was pertinent to all Christians.
As I continued pondering the title and text, I realized that Weber, like me, considers all Christians to be ministers. His purpose was to remind us that we serve the risen savior and salvation is ours if we accept it. He reminds us that the world is watching how we act and react. Our behavior reflects upon the church. Well done, Mr. Weber.
