Elders Lead a Healthy Family

Full Product Description

Elders Lead a Healthy Family explores the biblical paradigm for shared leadership: elders as the spiritual ""big brothers"" and shepherds to the family of God. This book is a fresh biblical alternative to the standard fare of pragmatic church leadership. Delivered in a winsome and irenic style, the book addresses the key concerns of our day, including pastoral burnout, women as elders, women and the pastoral gift, power in leadership, abuse of power in ministry, ministerial pay, and fostering missional-leadership structures. The answer to so many of the problems facing the church is not more coaching or better education. The answer requires our churches to change the very structures that foster abuse, isolation, and burnout. If we hope to save our pastors, then we need our pastors to abandon the ""pastor-as-CEO"" model of leadership. If we want to reach the lost, we need a systemic change in the way we plant, grow, and maintain our churches. Instead of putting a solo leader at the top of ""Church Incorporated,"" we need to build teams of elders, doing ministry together, as they lead the family of God. ""A refreshing alternative to the numerous familiar (and generally fruitless) attempts to baptize the pragmatic priorities of secular leadership theory into the waters of New Testament ecclesiology. . . . Elders Lead a Healthy Family ought to be required reading for vocational and nonvocational church leaders alike. --Joseph H. Hellerman, Author of When the Church Was a Family ""Elders Lead a Healthy Family is a fascinating, fresh look at church leadership. No one wants their sacred cows questioned, but that's exactly what this book does. With excellent scholarship and personal stories, J. R. Miller builds a biblical case for elder-led churches."" --Lyn Smith, Bible Activist, Speaker, Author ""Elders Lead a Healthy Family
