Overview How can well-meaning but sometimes ill-prepared laypeople guide the path of a church body? A leadership expert provides the secret, which lies in offering effective, practical training.
Publishers Description The key to effective leadership in the vast majority of today's churches lies as much with their governing boards as it does with their pastor. But many churches are lead by those who volunteer to chair committees because there is a need, yet they have no leadership training to speak of. How can well-meaning but sometimes ill-prepared lay people guide the path of a church body? The secret lies in offering effective, practical training. Leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs provides this in Leading Leaders. Filling a gaping hole in leadership literature, Malphurs offers workable strategies to train laypeople to successfully lead their churches.

Groundbreaking Dec 7, 2005
I'm currently undertaking a major project for a Doctor of Ministry degree on implementing policy governance into the board structure of our church. This book by Malphurs (which he describes as "a seminal work")is the best work I have found on the subject and will be a manual for board governance in this decade, and perhaps the next. He has custom fit John Carver's policy governance model for non-profit organizations to the church, saving church leaders time and effort in the figuring out how to adapt Carver's model to their board form and function. The value-added feature of the book is that almost half is appendices that provide 'templates' for any church seeking to clarify their board-staff relationships, and empower both elders and pastors in their respective roles. The book is groundbreaking and offers a significant boost to any church wanting to get off the ground in organizing and mobilizing their leadership for effective ministry.
A Book Long Overdue! Jul 23, 2005
For the pastors of board-driven churches, this book is long overdue. There is a plethora of Christian leadership titles on the market, but they all are geared towards pastoral or individual roles. In this book, Malphurs focuses on the need for church board members to be well-trained as they lead congregations into the 21st century. With his rock-solid thought processes and meticulous attention to detail, the author presents a volume that is destined to be a God-send to many struggling churches. I've read many church health authors, and Malphurs is one of my favorites. I recommend this book highly.
