Product Description

In addition to leading their congregations in worship, pastors also often lead church boards, staff, positions of leadership in the public sector, and more. The wise pastor recognizes that every act of leadership reflects a certain theological framework. Where, then, can pastors go to learn how to lead in an effective and spiritually informed way? The Three Tasks of Leadership is such a resource.This book unpacks business leader Max De Pree's famous definition of leadership - originally given for the business world -and applies it to the church. Eighteen theologians and pastors here offer essays echoing that definition. Conceived as a festschrift, The Three Tasks of Leadership transcends the narrow definition of "tribute," giving readers a thoroughly usable book refreshingly free of jargon, full of practical and inspirational advice, and perfect for both pastors in the field and pastors in formation.

Publisher Description

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between the two, the leader must become a servant and a debtor.” — Max De Pree on leadership

The wise pastor recognizes that every act of leadership reflects a certain theological framework. Where, then, can pastors go to learn how to lead in an effective and spiritually informed way?
