Product Description

Good leaders make successful churches. But what makes a good leader? Drawing on New Testament principles and patterns, MacArthur details the essential qualities and attitudes of true biblical leadership. He focuses especially on leaders as humble shepherds and hard-working servants---not as slick celebrities or power-hungry CEOs. Revised and updated.

Publisher's Description

It is absolutely essential that a church perceive itself as an institution for the glory of God, and to do that—claims John MacArthur—the local church must adhere unfalteringly to biblical leadership principles.

Christ never intended church leadership to be earned by seniority, purchased with money, or inherited through family ties. He never compared church leaders to governing monarchs, but rather to humble shepherds; not to slick celebrities, but to laboring servants.

Drawing from some of the best-received material on church leadership, this updated edition guides the church with crucial, effective lessons in leadership. This book is valuable not only for pastors and elders, but for anyone else who wants the church to be what God intended it to be.

    This was a very good read. Foundational. Building a church and maintaining the focus of a church. Protecting the foundation of the church and keeping it firmly rooted in Life giving Scripture. It is imperative that we understand the mission of the church and how the leadership of the church has a great responsibility in leading the church body Scripturally meaningfully.

    Anyone called to be a Pastor-Teacher,Elder or to any position of leadership in the Body of Christ should be informed from Scripture of the principles and requirements in this book as stated by John MacArthur. If not inspired, certainly based on Scripture.

    This book provides a very comprehensive study on what the church structure & leaders roles should be. It is written as an easy read with tons of scripture to support the authors opinions. A must read for leadership and teachers roles in the church.
