Augustine, an early church Elder, lived during the childhood years of the church (5th century), caring and defending the people of God during many subtle and blatant attacks on the faith. Augustine was passionate about the Biblical role of leading Christ’s Church. He spoke to the vital and often difficult aspects of being a spiritual leader in the church when he said: "Disturbers are to be rebuked, the low spirited to be encouraged, the infirm to be supported, objectors confuted, the treacherous guarded against, the unskilled taught, the lazy aroused, the contentious restrained, the haughty repressed, litigants pacified, the poor relieved, the oppressed liberated, the good approved, the evilborne with, and all are to be loved."

God centered leaders are also desperately needed today for the healthy development of the church. While there may be many ways to organize leadership within a church, there can be no substitute in fulfilling God’s commands in the qualifications and functions of church leadership, if a church is to provide an environment conducive for the spiritual health of its people. Therefore, it is vital to have a clear and uncompromising understanding of how church leadership is to be organised.
