We only have to think of what happens when there is no leadership to recognize its necessity. Imagine a class without a teacher; an army without a general; or a government without a prime or first minister. The church is no different. This book is born out of the authors desire to encourage and train people for this vital role of leadership in the church. Christian leadership is unique in that it must be always and completely subject to its ultimate head, the Lord Jesus Christ. Leaders should therefore accept his authority and that of his Word, the Scriptures, and should shape their vision and objectives accordingly. This extremely practical book is concerned primarily with leadership in the local church, but is not just for pastors and elders; it is relevant to any who hold positions of responsibility within the church. Drawing on his vast experience as a pastor, serving the church at home and abroad, the author deals with such issues as: tests for leadership; qualities for leadership; efficiency; dealing with colleagues; delegation; perils. But this book should not be read just by leaders; Derek Prime helpfully shows those of us who are not leaders that we should know what to expect of those who rule over us, and how we can best assist them in fulfilling their God-given task. To this end there are two sets of pertinent questions at the conclusion of each chapter, one for use in Bible study groups, and one for church leaders themselves.[Publisher]
