When God calls a believer to leadership, He wants to properly equip him to serve. Because specific tasks and callings are different, there are unique qualities necessary for various leadership positions in the Body of Christ. God equips each leader in different ways.

While God gives leaders specific qualities necessary for their own callings, there are also general qualifications which are required for all spiritual leaders. These qualifications are the subject of this lesson which discusses the basic requirements, spiritual fruit, and specific and general qualifications for leadership.
