Whether you are a leader already, thinking of becoming one or involved
in nurturing potential leaders, you will find helpful practical guidance
in this book.
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.
