Many people especially in the church regard power as evil. But they also realize that proper use of power is one of the most important elements for success in Christian leadership. But power could be misunderstood, misused, and abused. Hence, there is a need especially for local church leaders to identify the proper, biblical, and Christian way of leadership. This project/study develops seminar materials which will provide the local church leaders in South-Central Luzon Conference the foundations for proper handling of power in their leadership. The first section of the study includes the exploration of concepts of power in Christian leadership from the scriptural perspective.

The second section contains the curriculum for twoweekend seminars based on the findings from research reported in the previous section of the study. The seminar materials aim to emphasize the importance of power in Christian leadership. It also aims to develop personal character traits in local church leaders for them to exercise power properly in their leadership.
