Christ-centered Leadership Competencies

You are a letter from Christ … written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”
– 2 Corinthians 3:3

These core leadership principles from Jesus are complemented by additional leadership lessons from the Old and New Testaments. To cultivate local leaders, we also employ culturally appropriate stories, images, and music to support these biblical principles and practice.

Freedom to Lead International® champions specific competencies that are observed in the life and leadership of Jesus.


Freedom to Lead International® focuses on ten Christ-centered leadership competencies. Many of these competencies are familiar in the field of leadership/organizational development; however, Freedom to Lead emphasizes the difference that lies in the goal of each competency.

Just as Jesus led His followers to do “even greater things” (John 14:12), so leaders today that follow Christ “take the point” to serve those they lead to reach their highest Kingdom potential.
