The key to effective leadership in the vast majority of today's churches lies as much with their governing boards as it does with their pastor. But many churches are lead by those who volunteer to chair committees because there is a need, yet they have no leadership training to speak of. How can well-meaning but sometimes ill-prepared lay people guide the path of a church body?
The secret lies in offering effective, practical training. Leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs provides this in Leading Leaders. Filling a gaping hole in leadership literature, Malphurs offers workable strategies to train laypeople to successfully lead their churches.
Aubrey Malphurs is professor of pastoral ministries at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is also the author of over a dozen books, as well as president of the Malphurs Group, a church-consulting firm. He lives in Dallas, Texas.
