Publisher's Description

Most pastors are comfortable with the role of leader. Inspiring people and helping them discover and make use of their own gifts are tasks to which ministers generally feel called. Too many pastors and church leaders, however, forget that along with skills at leadership must come at least some acquaintance with the work of managing staff (whether it be paid or voluntary) and resources. What are the chief qualities and functions of a leader? Why are management skills necessary for an effective leader? Most important, how can pastors and other church leaders adapt these insights to their particular work as servants of the church?

In Leading & Managing a Growing Church, George Hunter brings together insights from the best writers and thinkers on leadership and management, and presents them in a brief, accessible introduction. With the clarity and style that is his trademark, he explores the most important ideas to emerge from leadership and management studies, and demonstrates how they can be put in the service of congregational vitality and growth.

Key Features: • Brings together insights from the best thinkers on leadership and management, and shows how these insights can be put in the service of congregational vitality and growth • Written by a well-known and highly respected author

Key Benefits: • Provides readers quick access to the best and most relevant insights of recent studies in leadership and management • Helps readers understand the need of church leaders to possess certain crucial management and leadership skills • Shows readers how to put these skills and insights into practice in the service of the church
