Though many people do not see themselves as leaders, all of us are leaders in some capacity. Mothers lead children. Husbands lead families. Managers lead employees. CEOs lead companies. Older children lead younger siblings. Everybody has some level of influence over someone else. In this message, Dr. Merritt relates that the greatest leadership lesson we can learn is not from the world's foremost leader, but from the world's foremost servant. As we understand that learning to lead is really learning how to follow, according to God's Word, our influence and impact over those we lead will be multiplied in Christ for His glory.

"From the time we were born the first lesson God wants us to learn is not how to lead, but how to follow. The first lesson God wants you to learn is not how to be over, but how to be under. There are people who were born to be leaders, but no one is born a leader. We are all born a follower and we are born that way for this reason--the way to know how to lead is to learn how to follow." --Dr. Merritt
