Is leadership 'crowding out the character of Jesus'?

Leadership is a big topic in the church these days.

Heck… I work for “Leadership” Network.

But some say our leadership culture has gone too far.  Lance Ford has written a new book called “UnLeaders”.  He’s a quote from Lance:

The leadership culture in the Church has fed a lot of egos and crowded out the character of Jesus in the name of leadership.

You can read this quote in full context of an interview here…

As with anything, when we concentrate just on one thing, we will get derailed.

I think leadership in the church is vitally important.  Without great leaders, churches flounder.  Seriously.

But do you agree with Lance, that all this concentrate on leadership has fed egos and crowded out the character of Jesus?

What do YOU think?
