Product Description

Is it possible for church leaders to use biblical and secular leadership concepts in a way that keeps Christ-not the marketplace-at the center of their mission? Drawing on biblical material and business wisdom, In Pursuit of Great AND Godly Leadership explores the critical leadership decisions and practices that shape the success of Christian organizations. These decisions are illustrated in compelling interviews with over forty leaders of churches, universities, denominational bodies, and international ministries. Mike Bonem leverages his background as an MBA-trained manager and an experienced church leader to bridge the gap between the analytical and structured world of business and the faith-driven approach that is essential for healthy churches.

Written to offer practical solutions for senior pastors, executive pastors, key laypeople, and leaders of other Christian entities, In Pursuit of Great AND Godly Leadership clearly shows the ways that secular practices can be imported into their organizations. Bonem addresses a variety of topics such as planning, finances, personnel management, measurement, team dynamics, and organizational change. In doing so, he points to the AND that every spiritual organization should strive to achieve.

    Bonem's book is very convicting of the need to serve God with your best. His observations of many churches makes this a very practical leadership book that is not just theoretical, but examples from what is working. I really like his idea of being aware of our "culture" and how that affects the way we do "church". I would highly recommend this book for all ministers and church leadership. I have my staff reading it.
