Growing Leaders

Full Product Description

  • For busy Christian leaders
  • This book helps you to empower the next generation of leaders
  • You'll find a reliable way to build up your ministry
Seven out of ten Christian leaders feel overworked, four in ten suffer financial pressures, only two in ten have had management training, and 1,500 give up their job over a ten-year period. At the same time, as financial restrictions affect the availability of full-time ministers, more people are needed for leadership roles in local congregations, for every area of church work.

This book faces the challenge of raising up new leaders and helping existing leaders to mature, using the model for growing leaders at the heart of the Arrow Leadership Programme, a ministry of the Church Pastoral Aid Society (CPAS). It comprehensively surveys leadership skills and styles, discerning our personal calling, avoiding the 'red zone' of stress, developing character, and living as part of the community of God's people.

The book contains an introduction and 12 chapters, in six sections, plus conclusion, epilogue and resources section:

Part 1: Leadership today
Part 2: Growing leaders know they're chosen
Part 3: Growing leaders discern God's call
Part 4: Growing leaders develop Christ-like character
Part 5: Growing leaders cultivate competence
Part 6: Growing leaders lead in community
