Product Description

Christian leaders struggle not only to acquire new skills and insights but also to unlearn what they already know. As both the church and the world change, Christian leaders and their very notions of leadership must change as well. Veteran church growth expert Eddie Gibbs maps out how Christian leadership must change in light of new global realities. Styles of leadership are changing from hierarchies to networks and from compartmentalization to connectivity. Gibbs assesses the dynamics of leadership teams, identifies healthy leadership traits, and looks to how new leaders are identified and developed.

Christian leaders struggle not only to acquire new skills and insights but also to unlearn what they already know. As both the church and the world change, so too must Christian leaders and their very notions of leadership.

Styles of leadership are changing, from hierarchies to networks and from compartmentalization to connectivity. Gibbs assesses the dynamics of leadership teams, identifies healthy leadership traits, and looks to how new leaders are identified and developed. This incisive analysis is a comprehensive resource for current and emerging leaders serving in churches, parachurch organizations and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

"One generation of leadership looks at another--from experience to emergence. Eddie Gibbs brings experience and scholarship to understanding changing church culture and younger church leaders."
"Eddie Gibbs is a wise and seasoned observer of the church throughout the world. He has worked with and trained several generations of leaders across all denominational boundaries and many cultural contexts. This book identifies the challenges confronting leaders in a rapidly shifting world. With a passion for the kingdom and a love for the church, Eddie outlines a way forward for leaders in a complex and swiftly shifting world. This is an important and helpful book."
"No matter what time period or culture we are in, there is always a need for leadership. However, how we lead does change depending on the people, the place, and the culture and values. In our emerging culture, we need to rethink many aspects of leadership in our churches. This book gives great insight on how to do that."
"Eddie Gibbs has done it again! First he helped see the church of the future with ChurchNext and now he shows us the kind of leadership necessary to bring that church into being. LeadershipNext is nothing short of a primer on leadership. I fully intend to absorb its content because now I have a blueprint to live into."
"Eddie Gibbs has God's heart for our hurting world, and a tactician's head for winning the war for souls on the frontline in the materialistic West. He is absolutely right: it is a new day demanding fresh ways to talent-spot, mentor and release the missional leaders needed for the apostolic work Jesus has left to his church. Young apostles arise! Older leaders, treasure and release your Timothys to their harvest duties! The Lord of the harvest has given them the help and strength of the Holy Spirit!"
" LeadershipNext tells it like it is. It's a great resource for leaders who want to be both biblical and adaptable to the culture. I especially recommend it to any pastor who is starting out or burning out in ministry."
" LeadershipNext: Changing Leaders in a Changing Culture by Eddie Gibbs is a book to be placed in the hands of every young leader with the words 'Walk in the light of Eddie's words and you will work effectively and not go off the path.' I've known and profited from a friendship with Eddie for twenty years; he is a competent guide to effective ministry in contemporary society."
