A Recap of Johnny Hunt’s Message at C3 Conference

This week, the INJOY Stewardship team will be live blogging content from the Creative Church Conference in Dallas, Texas.

C3 Conference is hosted by Pastor Ed Young of Fellowship Church and is a gathering of thousands of leaders and influencers from all walks of life and all around the world. C3 is passionate about bringing a new level of excellence to our churches and hope to our communities.

Dr. Johnny Hunt delivered a very simple, yet practical talk on the Biblical model of leadership. The following is a recap of his session at C3 Conference.

The Lord’s Model of a Great Leader

Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well. Surely you remember, brothers and sisters, our toil and hardship; we worked night and day in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you. - 1 Thessalonians 2:7-9

When Jesus chose to give us a model of leadership, he used a model we all could understand - a mother.

2 Words to Frame Your Perspective of Biblical Leadership Around:


  • The Biblical model of leadership looks like the love of a mother.
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:7 - 9


  • The motive for Biblical leadership is always LOVE.
