  • Summary:

    Church leaders want to know that their leadership strategies are informed by Christian teaching and made credible by the authority of Scripture. In addition, pastors have an unquenchable thirst for new and unique approaches to leadership. These needs and many more are met as Robert Dale takes the reader through four primary leadership strategies in the New Testament. Focus is a strategy that one learns through study of Jesus’ mission and leadership influence. Flexibility is the strategy learned as the Church expands through the Acts of the Apostles. Future-Orientation is the strategy emphasized through the pastoral Epistles. Feasibility is the strategy developed in the Book of Revelation, when the churches are in crisis or in survival mode. Each strategy is illustrated with practical application for the life of congregations so that leaders can sharpen leadership skills with integrity and authority.
