Publisher's Description

A companion to the popular Creative Church Leadership, this co-publication with "MODEM" focuses on the practical skills necessary for dynamic leadership in the local church.

A wide range of experienced church leaders and management gurus reflect on key components of successful contemporary church leadership including: part one which discusses people, leading a team, choosing and mentoring assistants, leading lay ministers and volunteers, how to delegate, how to resolve conflict; part two which describes organisation, leading churches of different sizes, leading multiple congregations, relating to the local community, initiating and completing projects, how to chair meetings; and, part three which discusses up close and personal, what kind of a leader are you, getting your work/life balance right, thinking strategically, preaching with a purpose, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

'As the title suggests this is a 'handbook', perhaps not a book to read initially from cover-to-cover, but one that is useful to keep on the book shelf and dip into from time to time as one may wish. This book may be of interest to those entering a first incumbency. The contributors all write from personal experience in ministry, dealing with subjects like the personal characteristics of a leader, preaching, thinking strategically, leading a team, dealing with conflict and so much more'.
-- Church of Ireland Gazette
practical and innovative handbook which will provide an excellent resource for those involved in church leadership and will help build confidence and skills’.
