The influence of the postmodern culture can radically alter the way you look at church leadership. But our focus should remain firmly on what is important. Developing skills to both engage and adapt to cultural changes can be challenging, but with a clear vision of your church's needs it does not need to be impossible, or even difficult. Steve Ogne and Tim Roehl offer many ideas for you to consider implementing in your coaching, mentoring and leadership structures to serve the church, both corporately and individually.
