Overview Set within the fictional story of a successful, experienced pastor counseling a younger, struggling peer, Aubrey Malphurs explores the essential elements of pastoral leadership in a changing world. He provides pastors the opportunity to examine their vocation's structure and participate in a process of definition and discovery in the following areas: - balancing achievement with personal character development - understanding the three-faceted role of leader, protector, and teacher - defining core values, mission statement, and strategy - clarifying relationships with congregation, staff, and board - developing a theology to accommodate change and the surrounding culture Included are a core values audit for use in the church and sample core values and vision statements. The Dynamics of Church Leadership is one of the first in a six-volume series that provides both experienced and beginning pastors with concise information to help them perform the task of ministry with efficiency, fruitfulness, and joy. Rooted in basic principles rather than passing fads, these practical books by recognized authorities address topics of perennial interest and offer sound guidance.

The Dymanics of Church Leadership Sep 9, 2007
This was a very good leadership book for me and I will be using this book to teach other leaders in my church.
One-Minute Church Leadership Feb 23, 2004
This title by Malphurs is written in the One Minute Manager parable style made popular by Ken Blanchard. Even though the book is a very easy read, the content is significant. Throughout his other works, Malphurs demonstrates that he has an excellent grasp on principles essential to Christian leadership. Here however, he attempts to cover too much ground in too simplistic of a fashion. So while this book is helpful, there are much better volumes on the market that address Christian leadership, a few of which are written by Malphurs himself.
If a pastor wants a quick, easy-to-read sampling of Christian leadership principles, then this book is the one to buy.
