So often, pastors are defined by external forces, rather than by the essential nature of the pastoral leader as modeled in scripture.
Taking positive steps to put "pastors on track," author Emmanuel Cleaver III draws on his own experiences, and from dynamic and effective pastors and churches across the country. He presents biblical models to distill his message and to recalibrate the definition of what makes the best church leaders. Pastor on Track
helps clergy re-frame their congregation's expectations and to empower them to do the work of the people, so the pastor can do the work of the pastor.
A participant in the Lewis Fellows program at Wesley Theological Seminary, Emanuel Cleaver III received his Doctor of Ministry degree at Saint Paul School of Theology. He is the author of articles and poems in Unity Magazine and Circuit Rider Magazine and has been guest lecturer at the Northwestern Missouri Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, for the South Central Jurisdictional Black Methodist for Church Renewal Conference, and for South Central Jurisdictional Bishop's Week. Emanuel lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
