1 Spiritual Leaders have three key people in their lives A Paul- a mentor. a hero that you look up to, but not idolize. Someone you can learn from. It doesn't have to be someone you know personally, but it sure helps if you do. A Barnabas- an encourager. This person needs to be a hands- on person. A person who is more your equal, who is willing to understand you, ask you tough questions, hold you accountable and love you unconditionally. I believe that a leader without a Barnabas-without the accountability this person provides-is an accident waiting to happen. A Timothy- a disciple. This is a younger person you are discipling and pouring your life into.
