Today, a wave of change is on the horizon. It manifests itself in various ways. It is causing a radical break with our old way of life and introducing a totally new one. It is in this troubled world that the church will live or die. The current socio-political situation places decisive responsibility upon the shoulders of the church leaders. At the same time, the church is developing ever deeper concerns and suffering loss of membership. Some churches are even being forced to close. There are many reasons for these developments, but lack of leadership is one of the most prominent among them. The purpose of this book is to outline new thinking on church leadership and thereby enhance existing leadership to help restore the church. Second, it aims to help lay leaders work effectively with pastors and seminarians. This book focuses on the moral concerns associated with leadership rather than on insensibility, on spiritual awakening rather than on the status quo, and on ethically responsible action rather than mere table talk.

Young Choe, with academic and ministry experience in both Korea and the U.S., has written an impassioned appeal to address recent declines in church membership and attendance. His diagnosis and recommendations make a helpful contribution to the ongoing discussion of the current state and future prospects of mainline denominations. —Douglas E. Wingeier, Ph.D., emeritus professor of practical theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
Young Choe has sounded a shrill siren to the American Church, especially the United Methodist denomination. With provocative observations and a well-woven call to return to biblical and theological wisdom, this volume offers a rich wellspring for pastoral formation and leadership that provides hope for the future of Christian witness in a tumultuous time. —Rev. Dr. Mark A. Fowler, associate professor of congregational leadership, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
This is a truthful, renovating, refreshing, and genuine voice of a pastor-scholar from a local church. A prophetic clarion call for mainline churches to venture into a new future ministry! —Andrew Sung Park, professor of theology and ethics, United Theological Seminary
