Transforming leadership : Jesus' way of creating vision, shaping values & empowering change by Leighton Ford( Book )
5 editions published between 1891 and 1994 in English and Korean and held by 298 libraries worldwide
Given our all-too-human feelings of inadequacy," Leighton Ford writes, "how can Jesus be taken as our leadership model? If he is unique, if he is the Son of God, does that not put him in a category which is light-years beyond us? And what relevance can a leader like that have for us?" In this inspiring book, Ford recognizes the doubts and weaknesses of leaders as well as their strengths and confidences. He does not saddle already-overburdened leaders with another set of impossibly demanding tasks. Instead, he calls his readers to recognize the unique and refreshing vision of leadership modeled by Jesus. Ford insists that Jesus' model of leadership does not paralyze, but empowers. "When I have false ideas of my strength, Jesus Christ exposes my incompetence," he writes. "When I feel totally beyond my depth, he provides for me God's enabling power." This is not another leadership how-to manual. It is a book for leaders who want to look anew, and thoroughly, at the powerful ministry of Jesus. Only so will they become leaders who create vision, shape values and empower change

The emotionally healthy church : a strategy for discipleship that actually changes lives by Peter Scazzero( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
"The newly updated and expanded edition of the groundbreaking bestseller The Emotionally Healthy Church, features a fuller, deeper look at the six principles contained in the original and includes a crucial, additional chapter: Slow Down to Lead with Integrity. New Life Fellowship in Queens, New York, had it all: powerful teaching, dynamic ministries, an impressive growth rate, and a vision to do great works for God. Things looked good -- but beneath the surface, circumstances were more than just brewing. They were about to boil over, forcing Peter Scazzero to confront needs in his church and himself that went deeper than he'd ever imagined. What he learned about the vital link between emotional health, relational depth, and spiritual maturity can shed new light on painful problems in your own church. In this revised and expanded edition of his Gold Medallion Award winning book, Scazzero shares refreshing new insights and a different and challenging slant on what it takes to lead your congregation to wholeness and maturity in Christ." --Publisher's description

Rethinking the church : a challenge to creative redesign in an age of transition by James Emery White( Book )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Why is it important to rethink the church' Today many leaders focus on how their ministries can be run more efficiently. But the foundational question, according to James Emery White, should be Why do we have this ministry' and then, Why do we do this ministry the way we do' Is it effective' Rethinking the Church helps pastors and lay leaders work through questions that must be answered if a church is to rethink evangelism, discipleship, ministry, worship, community, and the structure of the church. Break old molds, check assumptions, and be sensitive, says White. He uses the language and aims of "seeker-targeted" churches but urges readers not to tie themselves to any model without understanding the individual purpose of their church. Now thoroughly revised and expanded, Rethinking the Church contains more emphasis and key material on how to move from rethinking to transition. White blends biblical reflection and hands-on experience and uses the early church as described in the Book of Acts as the ultimate example

Compassionate leadership by Ted W Engstrom( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
What do compassionate leaders with years of experience have to say to leaders of today' What does Christ's example show us about leadership' What are the perils and pitfalls that can ensnare young Christian leaders' In Compassionate Leadership, Ted Engstrom and Paul Cedar bring their considerable experience to bear on the issues facing young leaders of today. Instead of discussing power, management, and organization, their advice involves being generous, believing in people, and helping to meet needs, encouraging friends, getting excited about the good things that happen to others, and helping others in their walk with the Lord. Jesus told us that to become great, we must be compassionate servants. Here's how
The day that changed forever : twenty-one life-changing experiences at the cross by Tim Roehl( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The events surrounding Christ's Passion really happened, and the people who experienced those events were real people, just like us--individuals with their own histories, preconceptions, desires, and ambitions. In The Day That Changed Forever, Dr. Tim Roehl tells the stories of those events and people, using a combination of rigorous biblical scholarship and what he calls "sanctified imagination." What must Barabbas have been thinking when he was set free so that an innocent man could die in his place' What went through the mind of Simon of Cyrene when he was drafted by Roman soldiers to carry Jesus' cross' What led Annas, a religious leader, to use his influence to condemn Jesus to death' Sometimes a story can become so familiar that it begins to lose its power to startle and amaze its audience--it can be tempting for Christians to think they "know" the story of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection while forgetting to be changed by it. The unique viewpoints of the people at the cross, imagined with compelling realism in The Day That Changed Forever, will bring fresh perspective to the familiar events and awaken in readers a newfound passion for the old, old story
