New styles and forms of leadership are emerging to proclaim the love and hope of God to new generations. In the first portion of this practical guidebook, the author explores biblical roots and dimensions of leader development. The book offers insights based on training leaders in a variety of settings, including incubators, and based on dialogue with leaders in many different churches, from emerging congregations to renewed or revitalized churches. This work represents new understandings of church positions as needed for ministry today.
The second part of the book describes the variety of congregational positions (such as outreach committee, children’s coordinator, and trustee), including an understanding of spiritual and vocational gifts called for by these positions. Purchases may reproduce these job description pages for training purposes.
