Item description for Transforming Leadership: New Vision for a Church in Mission (Prisms) by Norma Cook Everist & Craig L. Nessan...

Overview
Transforming Leadership sets forth the core values and leadership practices that can bring fundamental transformation to the life of the local church. Based on experience and research, Everist and Nessan explore three dimensions of transforming leadership: (1) how leaders are formed and transformed, (2) how transforming leadership can renew congregations and focus their ministry to do justice, and (3) how congregations can be transformed by empowering all members to use their gifts for ministry. Committed to the vitality and mission of the congregation, the authors promise neither a quick fix nor easy answers. Transforming leadership, they have found, is deeply rooted in theological conviction, expressed in genuine love for the people one serves, and cultivated through wise practices. The book grapples with challenging congregational dynamics, promotes the ministry of all the baptized, and provides vision for the lasting renewal of the church in mission.

Reviews - What do customers think about Transforming Leadership: New Vision for a Church in Mission (Prisms)?

Uncritical application of family systems theory to church leadership  Feb 1, 2010
The upside: an easily understood application of family systems theory for church leaders. The downside: it takes family systems theory too uncritically, and isn't clear enough (self-differentiation?) between this book and the earlier Friedman and Steinke corpus. If you've not read that material, this is a good place to start.
