Publisher's Description

With reports of financial impropriety and clergy misconduct making headlines, accountable leadership and sound management practices have become priority concerns in congregations of every faith. Accountable Leadership speaks to congregation leaders, both clergy and laity, and to individuals who love the worshiping community and seek the tools that can enable everyone in it to better care for one another.
This is a practical compAndium of resources for creating and managing a sound, effective, and fair congregation. This new edition has been extensively revised and updated to include contemporary topics such as disturbing trAnds in reduced giving, new church-state issues, clergy misconduct and troublesome members, and legal issues associated with the congregation's role as employer and provider of pastoral counseling.

Editorial Reviews

"This book filled an important gap in congregational studies when it was first published, and four years later this much enlarged edition is even better. In a world where church finances, law, and ethics are so much more complicated than ever, leaders can't afford to be without it." --Loren Meade, founder, The Alban Institute
"This book is a plea for congregational leaders to be competent, informed, accountable, and in touch with contemporary reality. Reading it will enrich both the life and the ministry of every leader who accepts the need to be accountable. It is an ideal study book to be read by every member of the governing board." --Lyle E. Schaller, Church Consultant
"Chaffee is thorough, reasonable, and pastoral in his approach to an important subject rarely covered adequately in a seminary." --Your Church
