The key to effective leadership in today's churches lies as much with their governing boards as it does with their pastors.
Many churches are led by volunteers who chair committees yet have little or no leadership training. Is it possible for well-meaning but often ill-prepared laypeople to guide a church body into Christ-honoring ministry?
The answer is yes, and the secret lies in offering church leaders effective, practical training. In Leading Leaders Aubrey Malphurs provides workable strategies to train laypeople to successfully lead their churches. Covering such concerns as "Who is really leading the church?" and "What do church boards do?" this book provides not only practical evaluation tools, but a plan for developing a church board that can accomplish defined and vital goals.
Including fourteen appendices and helpful questionnaires, Leading Leaders builds on the well-received Being Leaders and Building Leaders. It is a practical guide to creating and maintaining a dynamic and effective church leadership team that is spiritually equipped and properly trained to lead the local body of Christ.
Aubrey Malphurs is professor of pastoral ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary. A nationally recognized expert on leadership issues, he is the author of more than fifteen books and the president of the Malphurs Group (www.malphursgroup.com), a training and consulting organization.
