Reviews - What do customers think about Leading the Congregation: Caring for Yourself While Serving Others?
Excellent Resource Apr 2, 2008
This book was hard to read sometimes. It is so full of assessment tools and helpful info that sometimes it was hard to admit or acknowledge that the issues of ministry were not just the "people" but me. Smile. I would reccommend this to all who are anticipating entering the pastorate or looking to sharpen their their skills as a leader of a congregation. It can also serve as a resource for ongoing training of ministers, pastors, bishops, etc. Full of useful and practical information. You won't be sorry.
A supportive and practical book! Sep 21, 2005
The book states that this is a "complete and definitive guide to the practice of church leadership" and it is. It covers all aspects of guiding the flock and caring for yourself with spiritual integrity and service. Highly recommended!
