Church Administration:Creating Efficiency for Effective Ministry Mar 12, 2007
This is a very excellent book. The service was excellent. I would recommend this book for any minister, particularly those just entering the ministry.

Dr. Welch has done a great job of providing a sound overview on the principles of church administration. After having read the book, I would strongly recommend it as a textbook for pastors and church administrators attending or having completed seminary. Be advised, this isn't light reading, but is a must read for church leaders who seek to purposefully and excellently fulfil their biblical purpose.
