The Serving Leader for the People of God offers a unique "action approach" to leading by serving others. It sounds paradoxical, but it works-and this book details five behaviors you need to practice to implement servant leadership in your church, organization or home.

About the Author:

Dr. Elizabeth Wourms is the Executive Pastor at the Dayton Vineyard Church, Dayton, Ohio (daytonvineyard.com). She served as Senior Leadership Team member for Transformational Leadership Connection, a leader consortium and resource center for leadership development and equipping ministry. Her life mission is to invest in leaders and equip them for personal, organizational, and community transformation. Elizabeth understands leadership to be the facilitation of another s becoming, and she finds joy in serving as a catalyst to release potential in other leaders and the people with whom they serve. Elizabeth played a key role in launching Kingdom Connections of Greater Dayton, a faith-based non-profit organization committed to community transformation. She was formerly the Involvement Pastor at Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene, Beavercreek, Ohio, and Director of the Pohly Center for Supervision and Leadership Formation at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio. Elizabeth also serves as adjunct faculty for the Seminary. Elizabeth is a REAL Ambassador for Group Publishing, serving as a consultant, writer, and trainer for Group s Church Volunteer Central Association. Elizabeth holds bachelor degrees from Kansas State University (biology) and the University of Cincinnati (pharmacy), and advanced degrees from United Theological Seminary (master of divinity and doctor of ministry).

Dr. John Stahl-Wert is President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Leadership Foundation and Serving Leaders, a position he has held since 2000. Serving Leaders serves, trains, and connects business and community leaders to transform the culture of Pittsburgh by building the character of its leaders. In 1994, John became national Training Director for Leadership Foundations of America, and prior to that post he served God's kingdom as a pastor, a missionary and an artist. He earned his B.A. from Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Va., his M.A. in Theological Studies from Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkton, Ind. and his D.Min. from Eastern Baptist Seminary in Philadelphia, Pa. A gifted storyteller, John is co-author of the international bestseller, The Serving Leader (in eight languages), co-author of Ten Thousand Horses (in four languages), and author of With: A True Story. John is Senior Fellow for the Center for Executive Leadership and a monthly columnist for Business Management Review, both based in Beijing. He serves as Adjunct Faculty for Bakke Graduate University (Hong Kong) as well as for Geneva College s Masters of Science in Organizational Leadership. John is a member of the National Speakers Association.

Review:

This book is a leadership treasure, filled with concrete examples and leadership nuggets! It is an insider's look at leadership styles and how they play out in the Equipping Church. --Gia Garey, Group Life Program Director, The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, Leawood, Kan.

Elizabeth Wourms and John Stahl-Wert's The Serving Leader For the People of God is a clear and practical application to the life of ministry leaders of the ideas in Stahl-Wert's earlier work with Ken Jennings, The Serving Leader. The authors take the five key ideas simply stated and illustrated in The Serving Leader and help the reader weave them deeply into the fabric of their life. The practical, reflective, biblical approach of this work will make it useful in congregations and in seminary classrooms. Heeded in practice, it will shape the lives of leaders and congregations. I heartily commend the work to anyone travelling the leadership journey. --R. Robert Creech, Ph.D., co-author of The Leader s Journey, and the Hubert H. and Gladys S. Raborn Professor of Pastoral Leadership, George W. Truett Theological Seminary

When leaders DO (and believe) the actions in this book, teams will thrive and so will leaders. Thanks for your strong theological insights and practical to-dos. --Joani Schultz, Chief Creative Officer, Group Publishing, Inc.

You owe it to yourself to take the time to experience this book. Engage the questions, allowing them to become tools of self-discovery. Ask God to illuminate the passages that challenge you to grow. This book will be the catalyst for deep and abiding transformation, not only for you, but ultimately for those you lead. --Andee Marks, Minister of Equipping, Saint Patrick s Anglican Church, Lexington, KY
