In his message at TGC21, Juan Sánchez speaks on God’s clear path for leadership in the church and how to find biblically qualified elders and leaders. He explains that God created a pattern of leadership that entails sonship, priesthood, and kingship. Throughout Scripture, this pattern repeats until Christ is revealed as the true Son, true Priest, and true King.

Drawing from Paul’s first and second letters to Timothy, Sánchez helps pastors identify leaders who imitate Christ based on four necessary traits: character, conviction, competency, and credibility. He encourages pastors, “We must identify faithful men who are able to teach others also, that we may leave a gospel legacy, so that this gospel will continue to be proclaimed until Christ returns.”
