Item description for Building Effective Boards for Religious Organizations: A Handbook for Trustees, Presidents, and Church Leaders by Holland & Jr. Thu Hester...

Through their admirable energy, dedication, and leadership, religious board members sustain our world's most invaluable organizations. This in-depth handbook offers essential insights from respected veterans of religious and nonprofit work on governing an organization with a religious mission. Drawing on years of research, consulting, and hands-on religious nonprofit work, the authors show how board members can clearly define their roles and mission, transform hierarchical structures into models of collaborative leadership, and organize for greater impact.


From congregations and seminaries to soup kitchens, hospital chains, and social service agencies, Building Effective Boards for Religious Organizations examines both the nature and nurture of religious boards. Interfaith in scope and brimming with real-life examples, it skillfully demonstrates how a religious board can escape common problems, and how understanding the full depth of the organization's mission can help it best fulfill its intended purpose.

Reviews - What do customers think about Building Effective Boards for Religious Organizations: A Handbook for Trustees, Presidents, and Church Leaders?

Focus on Integrity of Leaders  Apr 17, 2001
I felt this was a great book dealing with a topic which sees very few books published on the subject. BEB has a mixture of theory and practice that lend it authority on the subject - all in all, I found it to be very comprehensive. Chapter One alone has enough persuasiveness to guide any errant board back to the right track of being stewards and servants - leaving personal agendas behind and, instead, following the vision laid forth.
