  • Summary:

    Pastors are often taught the finer points of preaching and counseling and the intricacies of theological thinking – and this is assumed to be enough – but rarely are they taught the principles of leadership. Two few leaders are identified and nurtured in seminary. Alan Nelson makes a case for that need and seeks to fill this gap, for it will help pastors and lay-led ministry teams discover the principles of leadership that are required to bring about a strong future orientation in a congregation, where the leaders must retool…or retire.
