U of N School Leader's Preamble
"We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me" (Col 1:28-29).
God seeks leaders who have a passionate love of Him and a desire to see His glory revealed among all the nations. He wants people whose minds have been transformed by revelation from Him. This transformation includes their own acceptance in Christ and the compelling desire to multiply this new identity by introducing others to Christ, as well as teaching and discipling them.
These leaders are drawn to daily closeness with God because of their dependence on the Holy Spirit. Therefore they grow in knowledge and wisdom because God is the source of all knowledge. This intimacy with God will also allow the Holy Spirit to move through these leaders and through their staff and students, creating new understanding because they are all relying on Him.
Because they have a passion for the Word of God, these leaders have an infectious desire to see it applied and reapplied from generation to generation to the relevant needs of every nation. They understand that God's ways are the foundations of all learning and are able to lead others in breaking and pulling down the deception of every lofty idea which exalts itself against God.
God seeks school leaders who will not strive in their own fleshly wisdom and strength, but according to His power, which seeks human outlets through which to work mightily.
The U of N school leader has a passion to see Christ revealed as Lord over all the nations, and is constantly seeking to learn from, and minister to, staff and students from every people group. They want the group to be enriched by each ethane's unique expression of Jesus.
These leaders prepare diligently in prayer and in study of God's word, counting this as the cost of influencing the future. However, they are still open to the Holy Spirit's direction daily in the classroom. They rejoice both when God confirms their plans and when He shows them a better way. They believe they must actively seek for God to use them in evangelizing and discipling the nations as the application of their teaching efforts.
These school leaders have no interest in programme or even in ministry except to the extent that they build a people for Christ's mission; a people called and taught of God, a people of destiny. They want the Lord to reproduce others who will fully play their part in bringing a great multitude before His throne, a great multitude which no one can count from every nation, tribe, people and tongue.
