Character Counts Dec 12, 2003
In a world where words are only for political gain, and instant results are everything, Mannoia callis for character reform. The integrity factor for leadership formation, according to Mannoia, is an ¡§intentional integration of ¡K two pursuits, uniquely patterned in Scripture for every Christian leader.¡¨ The two pursuits are ¡§unseen foundations¡¨ of ¡§being before God¡¨ and performance flow out of one¡¦s being. In other words, the process of building integrity between who one is and what one does is the journey to grow a spiritual leader. Mannoia starts with the journey of Moses and moves on to the pattern of Jesus to illustrate his thesis. His purpose ¡§is not to focus on ¡¥equipping spiritual leaders with visible tools for their position, but, rather, on the unseen building blocks of ¡¥empowerment¡¦.¡¨ ¡§Leadership means influencing others.¡¨ Christian leadership should influence ¡§others to faith and life in Christ¡¨ and ¡§it involves a positive influence to cause change.¡¨ All leadership has the visible performance involving skills, functions and results. But spiritual leadership can stand the test because of their core, an unseen identity like the bottom of an iceberg which gives stability in times of wind and wave. People always behave out of their identities. Therefore the identity of spiritual leadership needs to follow the pattern of Christ in order to God¡¦s work. Christ took a path of service with humility and emptiness in order to be exalted in God¡¦s time and by God¡¦s way. Christian leaders need to follow suit. This approach is similar to Larry Crabb's in his book Inside Out. This path calls for transforming one¡¦s identity through emptying and dealing one¡¦s will through humbling obedience. It is not easy because ¡§the way of Christ is not easy¡¨ but is rewarding and fulfilling. When we identify with Christ in His suffering, we shall also exalt with Christ in God¡¦s timing. When the unseen identity is found, the spiritual can move to learn from different models of leadership and management according to their orientation. Mannoia caution us to check out our motives, whether we serve for self-improvement or serve because of a passion for God. If self is the motive we may end up pursuing self as our goal. If God is our motive we will get God as our result. Therefore our ministry is ¡§the activity¡K flows from identity as a servant¡Kin like-mindedness Christian leaders follow His example ¡V obey the Father, submit to His will and make Christ known as the means for reconciliation to God.¡¨ The journey goes on when a spiritual leader is ¡§continually evaluating the integration and interaction between our identity and our performance.¡¨In a long haul, character does speak out. Dr. Mannoia is my professor. I enjoy both him and his book. It is a short book that can be finished on a east-west plane trip, but the idea is profound and along the line with those of Oswald Sanders, Greenleaf and the like. One thing i notice is that the word "identity" appears much more times than "integrity".
