About Ron Fast

I am an I.T. professional working as the I.T. director at a very large church. Previous to my I.T. position I was the Youth Director for Junior High/Middle School youth group. During my time working with youth I saw the need for Biblical devotionals that would encourage the students to study the Bible everyday. To facilitate that I developed a series of weekly devotionals titled G-TRAX Devo's. Each devotional begins with a crazy, thought provoking story to draw them into the lesson and then moves on to short study. To hold their interest I interspersed word search and crossword puzzle, with essay questions and other question/answer formats. Once I left the youth ministry I turned the hard copy devotionals into an online version

About the Series: What's in a Leader
In this world, the word “servant” and the word “leader” are considered total opposites. Unfortunately, the word “servant” has sort of a bad image associated with it. A servant is someone who gets walked on. Most leaders would not even think about being a servant to others. This was true even back in Jesus’ time. The Pharisees and Teachers of the Law would never consider being a servant to those around them. In fact, they expected others to serve them. But Jesus came to earth to show them and us how a real leader should act. Everything about Him revolved around serving others. He was never focused on Himself. What does Jesus say about being the greatest in Luke 9:46-48? Probably the most difficult thing about being a leader is to get out of the normal “selfish” mode in which us human-type-peeples tend to be stuck. In order to become an effective leader-type person, you need to begin thinking about others, not just when it’s convenient or when you have to, but all of the time. It needs to become a part of you. It must be such a part of you that you don’t think twice about it. We all look to Jesus as the ultimate example of what a servant looks like.
