Product Description

Ask yourself this question: What type of character qualifies the people God chooses to use?

The question itself assumes an atypical answer, simply because it leaves out so much. To ask only about one's character seems inadequate when defining a leader. We surely need to ask about character, but also about personality, communication skills, IQ, education, previous experience, and more... don't we?

Crawford Loritts disagrees. He answers the question with four simple words: Brokenness, communion, servanthood, and obedience.

These four traits form the framework for Leadership as an Identity. By examining each trait, Loritts undermines many pervasive assumptions about leadership that are unbiblical.

According to Loritts, God doesn't look for leaders like the world does. He looks for disciples.


There are many definitions and examples of leadership today. My friend Crawford Loritts writes that the responsibility of leadership must be received as a God-given trust. God builds our inner life to equip us with the convictions, the strength, and the resources necessary to lead in ways which leave a legacy for future generations. This book will inspire and equip you to become a leader God uses for His glory.
-Tony Dungy, Football coach, Indianapolis Colts
