John (Jack) Miller teaches that a Christian leader must first and foremost be a servant whose attitudes reflect a heart transformed by a relationship with God. Through his correspondence, he leads his readers to develop a deeper understanding of the gospel as well as a life of humility, faith and prayer. He also challenges those called to serve as leaders by asking them to find their primary motivation in the glory of God alone.
