"When I started my practice, we wanted God to be at the center. ... I think every believer is called into full-time ministry."
For Dr. Wes Saade, family practice physician and co-owner of TotalCare, which includes three clinics and one emergency room in greater Fort Worth, Texas, those words go beyond mere talk. In his life and in his medical practice, he puts his faith first, Saade shares on an episode of "Charisma Connection" on the Charisma Podcast Network.
"Godly leadership is: Will we decide in the moment to make our workplaces places of spiritual healing, not just good places of business where we are nice to people?" says Saade, who also has an extensive ministry to his fellow leaders. And, he adds, "Any person of faith is called to be a leader."
For Saade and TotalCare, godly leadership includes a voluntary weekly Bible study for employees, a company chaplain available to minister to both staff and patients, a prayer box for those who wish to share requests, and the freedom to pray with and speak spiritual truth over patients as the Holy Spirit leads. Saade draws inspiration from Psalm 78:2 (NIV), which says, "And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them."
"Integrity of heart," Saade says, means "the heart that loves the Lord and has a love of people. ... It's an authentic heart." Beyond this loving heart, he says, leaders must have "skillful hands," or "business skills, leadership skills, cutting-edge skills. And we have to be good stewards of what God has given us."
