The Making of a Doyen Leader

An Expository of Leadership & Success

by Tyrone Smith, D.TH.

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The term doyen means the most respected or prominent person in a particular field; a person considered to be knowledgeable or uniquely skilled because of a long experience in some field of endeavor. My desire through this expository is to stimulate the mind of the readers to acquiesce to the methodology of achieving a place of prominence in their lives by pursuing a greater knowledge of God through Systematic Theology and not by the obtaining of a title or position of prominence only. This writing will also explore an important observation of relevance within the leadership to avoid self-intoxication of one's perception of greatness. If you are succeeding in any area of life, marriage, business, ministry, school, etc. look at the doyen you exhibit. Doyen leaders strive for what is right in the sight of God and mankind, carefully monitoring their behavior because they know an audience is watching them to glean wisdom and direction. This book will define doyen to the reader and through the inspiration and inerrancy of Theology, objective and subjective views of the canon, careful expository and hermeneutical extraction of scripture, and the magnified look at many of the forefathers who have demonstrated doyen leadership, but at times fail in their presentation and obligation.
After an examination of the term and the careful consideration of the leadership, I recognized the necessity to pursue such a place in every area of my life, marriage, business, ministry, and parenting. My desire through this expository is to stimulate the mind of the readers to acquiesce to the methodology of achieving a place of prominence in their lives by pursuing a greater knowledge of God through Systematic Theology and not by the obtaining of a title or position of prominence only. Systematic Theology as stated by Elmer L. Townes in his book "Theology for Today" takes the material furnished by Biblical and Historical Theology, and with this material seeks to build up into an organic and consistent whole all our knowledge of God and the relations between God and the universe, whether this knowledge be originally derived from nature or from the scriptures. Ray Bakke's book "A Theology as Big as The City" speaks to us on this wise, "this principle seems clear: the further one goes into the avant-garde frontier of creative ministry, the more important it becomes that we be deeply rooted in the biblical, theological and historical tradition. This writing will also explore an important observation of relevance within doyen leadership to avoid self-intoxication of one's perception of greatness and prominence. Contemporary Theology analyzes current thinking regarding Christianity. Inasmuch as Christianity must always be expressed in contemporary terms, the validity or non-validity of each person's expression of Christianity must be examined and verified. Within each theological dispensation, a true measurement of doyen and relevance is clearly expressed by an individual's ambition to follow God, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, beyond the scrutiny of its generation, nationality, and ethnicity. If we consider the Apostle Paul to substantiate this argument, he writes in Philippians 3:14, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus, which offers an objective and subjective view of his pursuit in Christ. Objectively, he knows that God has called him, and he steadfastly commits his life to the fulfillment of that calling. However, subjectively it is clear that his desire to fulfill that calling has a deeper contrition and surrender to the Holy Spirit which affords him a revelation his counterparts did not have.
