Publishers Description Talks about how church leaders can change their focus from internal to external. This book gives church and denominational leaders, pastors, and clergy a clear model for leading the change necessary to create and foster a missional church, focused outward to spread the message of the Gospel into the surrounding community. The Missional Leader: Equipping Your Church to Reach a Changing World focuses on principles rather than institutional forms, shows readers how to move away from church as usual, and demonstrates what capacities, environments, and mindsets are required to lead a missional church. Alan Roxburgh (Vancouver, BC, Canada) is President of Missional Leadership Institute (MLI) and has pastored congregations in small towns, urban centers, and the suburbs. Fred Romanuk (Vancouver, BC, Canada) also at MLI, is a psychologist, who has worked with large national and international organizations in the management of change.
From The Book Jacket Missional churches are not about a particular program or isolated projects (such as mission trips or youth ministry). At the very heart of a missional church is a gathering of people who are concerned with the bigger purpose of bringing God's word into the larger community outside their walls.</p> <p> In The Missional Leader, consultants Alan J. Roxburgh and Fred Romanuk give church and denominational leaders, pastors, and clergy a clear model for leading the change necessary to create and foster a missional church focused outward to spread the message of the Gospel into the surrounding community. The Missional Leader emphasizes principles rather than institutional forms, shows readers how to move away from "church as usual," and demonstrates what capacities, environments, and mindsets are required to lead a missional church. <p>Experts in the field of missional leadership, Roxburgh and Romanuk outline a strategic change model that can be implemented to help transform a congregation and its leaders. They also present the factors that define the character of an effective missional leader and show how a pastor and other clergy can lead their congregation to best serve their church and larger community. <p>Ultimately, this book helps to guide church leaders to cultivate a local church environment where God is the center of conversation and God shapes the focus and work of the people.

Reviews - What do customers think about Missional Leader?
the real deal Nov 1, 2006
Alan Roxburgh has finally pulled together all the pieces that he has been writing about and teaching for a number of years. Some of this stuff he taught in a course I took with him 14 years ago at McMaster. He highlights the character required, the skills required, and the processes required, of pastors seeking to innovate toward the missionally-engaged congregation. There are far too many people using the term "missional" to signify whatever they want. Alan and the others in the Gospel and Culture Network are giving us principles, practice and definitions that do justice to what Newbigin meant when he started some of us using the term long before it became vogue.
