Because it can be abused, leadership is a risky business - both for those in it and those under it. But God has good plans for leadership within the church. This study explores God's plans for authority by focusing on God's revelation of himself as shepherd, and how God calls leaders to image him. The rest of the study looks at the special responsibilities and roles within the church, fulfilled by elders, deacons, and church members themselves. 6 weeks. Teacher's Notes for each week are at the back of the book.
