· Seven out of ten Christian leaders feel heavily overworked.
· Four in ten suffer financial pressures.
· Only two in ten have had management training.
· Many will give up their position.
Even as the number of full-time ministers dwindles, people are desperately needed for leadership roles in every area of the local congregation. Growing Leaders confronts the challenges both of raising up new leaders, and of helping existing leaders avoid burnout and mature in ability. Having helped ministers of many denominations for years, Lawrence combines the latest leadership research with a solid understanding of the specific challenges of church leadership.
Using a tested model for growing leaders at the heart of the Arrow Leadership Program, this outstanding resource shows readers how to survey leadership skills and styles, discern personal calling, avoid the "red zone"of stress, develop character, cultivate competence, and live and lead effectively as part of the community of God’s people.
"Biblically solid and organizationally aware, rich in resources and practical help." —Leighton Ford, Chairman, Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization ABOUT THE ARROW LEADERSHIP PROGRAM With a focus on proven young leaders with significant potential who are serving in church, denominational or parachurch ministry, The Arrow Leadership Program centers primarily on issues related to personal and pastoral leadership, with a secondary emphasis on organizational leadership. Since 1992 the program has helped to develop leaders who are led more by Jesus, who lead more like Jesus and who lead more to Jesus.
