Product Description

Good leaders make successful churches. But what makes a good leader? Drawing on New Testament principles and patterns, MacArthur details the essential qualities and attitudes of true biblical leadership. He focuses especially on leaders as humble shepherds and hard-working servants---not as slick celebrities or power-hungry CEOs. Revised and updated.

Publisher's Description

It is absolutely essential that a church perceive itself as an institution for the glory of God, and to do that, the local church must adhere unfalteringly to biblical leadership principles. Christ never intended church leadership to be earned by seniority, purchased with money, or inherited through family ties. He never compared church leaders to governing monarchs, but rather to humble shepherds; not to slick celebrities, but to laboring servants. Drawing from some of the best-received material on church leadership, this updated edition guides the church with crucial, effective lessons in leadership. This book is valuable not only for pastors and elders, but for anyone else who wants the church to be what God intended it to be.
