Product Description

Transforming Leadership sets forth the core values and leadership practices that can bring fundamental transformation to the life of the local church. Based on experience and research, Everist and Nessan explore three dimensions of transforming leadership: (1) how leaders are formed and transformed, (2) how transforming leadership can renew congregations and focus their ministry to do justice, and (3) how congregations can be transformed by empowering all members to use their gifts for ministry.

Committed to the vitality and mission of the congregation, the authors promise neither a quick fix nor easy answers. Transforming leadership, they have found, is deeply rooted in theological conviction, expressed in genuine love for the people one serves, and cultivated through wise practices. The book grapples with challenging congregational dynamics, promotes the ministry of all the baptized, and provides vision for the lasting renewal of the church in mission.

Norma Cook Everist is Professor of Church and Ministry at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa. She is editor of The Difficult but Indispensable Church, and author of Open the Doors and See All the People: Stories of Church Identity and Vocation.

Craig L. Nessan is the Academic Dean at Wartburg Theological Seminary. Previously Associate Professor of Contextual Theology at the same institution, Nessan authored Give Us This Day: A Lutheran Proposal for Ending World Hunger in the "Lutheran Voices" series published by Augsburg Fortress.
