    A leader in the church is required to be qualified according to the Scriptures. The following character qualities are biblical qualifications for serving (1 Timothy 3:8-13).

    • Above Reproach, Dignified and Blameless (1 Tim 3:8, 10) – As a leader at Reconcile you must have a reputation of conducting yourself in a dignified way. It is important to note that “dignified” serves as a summary to all the other qualifications. This quality is a validation of maturity and victory in the other qualities. You must have a good reputation within the body in order to lead it. However, you must also have a good reputation with those outside the body of Christ.
    • Not Double Tongued/Gossip (1 Tim 3:8) – As a leader at Reconcile, you will often find yourself in conversations with individuals who have made a wreck of their lives through poor decisions. You will hear and see a lot of things that individuals won’t want divulged. Your supervisor can help advise you on when/how much to share with others. A primary application of this trait is that when you are involved in conflict, you go to the right people and through appropriate channels as opposed to those uninvolved and therefore unhelpful. Specifically for work, go to your supervisor. In general, go up with issues to avoid going to peers (gossip) or to subordinates (divisiveness).
    • Life Matches Doctrine (1 Tim 3:9) – If you profess to hold “good doctrine” and yet your life is without spiritual fruit, there is a problem. If this is the case, you are declaring to the world that there is no real power in the gospel of Jesus! The gospel “trains us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age” (Titus 2:12).
    • Not Addicted to Much Wine/Temperate (1 Tim 3:8) – As a leader at Reconcile you must show restraint and moderation. You are called by God to lead the church and therefore must be controlled (as much as possible) by the Holy Spirit. When leaders lack the ability to avoid addictions or detrimental habits they prove themselves to be lovers and servants of something other than God.
    • Not Greedy for Dishonest Gain (1 Tim 3:8) – As a leader of God’s church you are called to be someone who does not love money. You must not feel entitled to any standard of living, income, property, or leisure. You must be someone whose charity outshines your standard of living.
    • Husband of One Wife (One woman kind of man / one man kind of woman) (1 Tim 3:12) – A leader must be “one-woman-kind-of man / one-man-kind of woman” that is distinctly marked by sexual faithfulness to his or her spouse and to Jesus. This is an ongoing battle for everyone; however, a pattern of repentance, transparency and health must be in place to lead in God’s church.
    • Manage Household Well (1 Tim 3:12) – Leaders must lead their children and their own households well. This is one of the more challenging qualifications to prescribe the desired behaviors, but it is obvious to most when those behaviors are absent. You must lead your own family in a way that models the redeemed community God desires from His Church. You are called to be a good primary teacher, theologian, decision maker, conflict resolver, disciplinarian, servant, and protector for your family.
