Product Description

Matching the right pastor with the right congregation is one of the most important—-and daunting—-decisions either party can make. While there are many pastors and congregations that merely fit OK, there are other matches that fit perfectly. Leadership that Fits Your Church explores how to find what really works for pastors and congregations. Cynthia Woolever and Deborah Bruce, known for their work with congregational life research, lead you on an enlightening adventure in finding that perfect match. Follow the pastoral transition experiences of three churches: a mainline, Protestant congregation; a conservative church; and a Catholic parish. Each example starts with basic descriptions of pastors and church types, then digs into illustrations of deeper dynamics that yield a good match between congregation and pastoral leadership. From The Columbia Partnership (TCP) Leadership Series.
