Publisher's Description

Helps small membership church pastors see the spiritual development of their church in ways that tie directly to their own spiritual formation, resulting in a spiritual maturity as evidenced by inclusiveness and hospitality.
The pressures of the church “doing business” often push pastors to the point that they neglect that which is central to all that they and the church are supposed to be doing – spiritual growth or leadership. Too few resources are specifically designed to address this subject from within the context of the small-membership church.  This book will address both of these issues.  Spiritual leadership is defined as the art or practice through which the leader helps others move toward spiritual maturation. It begins with spiritual instincts and moves to spiritual insights to spiritual initiative to spiritual integrity and finally to spiritual inclusiveness.  This book focus on how this process works within the life of the pastor and moves to the life of the small membership church, and includes concrete examples of how the pastor functions as a facilitator of spiritual formation will be given.  Particular attention is given to ways in which the setting of the small-membership church both hinder and encourage spiritual growth.

    I co-pastor a small membership congregation and found this book disappointing. The book is written from a Weslyan perspective. I found it weak on Scriptural support. If you agree with statements like this "...systematic theology, philosophy of religion, and church history did not seem helpful in my search for a loving God" (p 5), then you may find this book useful. I don't, and didn't. The author should, IMHO, search for who God IS, as evidenced by ALL the Scriptures, rather than searching only for a "loving" God. This is just one example, but I found statements on practically every page that just left me shaking my head. On the upside, some good points are raised regarding our treatment of "different" people and I agreed with the author there, but again, Biblical support (say, Act 17:26) is essential and, for the most part, lacking. I bought 2 similar books, this one and Daman's "Shepherding the Small Church" and found Daman's to far more useful and Scriptural. In hindsight, the titles are revealing: "Shepherding" vs. "Spiritual Leadership".
