In honor of the All Saints’ Leadership Conference over the weekend, we would like to provide some online resources on Christian Leadership.
First, check out John Pryor’s summary and reflection of the Leadership conference, entitled “Spirituality is no substitute for sweat.”
Christianity Today provides an online resource center for Leadership focusing on nearly every aspect of the church (one article discusses seat selection for worship!).
John Stott has provided a valuable book on leadership available online, called “Basic Christian Leadership: Biblical Models of Church, Gospel and Ministry.”
Jerry C. Wofford provides another online book called “Transforming Christian Leadership.” It’s an accessible and quick read.
John White provides another very accessible read with his book “Excellence in Leadership: Reaching Goals with Prayer, Courage and Determination.” This was the book Dr. Ray Pendleton used as a resource for his presentation at the All Saints’ Leadership Conference.
The book “Improving Organizational Effectiveness” by Bernard M. Bass and Bruce J. Avolio helps the church understand the importance of project management and provides the necessary tools to accomplish its goals.
For the more academically inclined, the Journal of Business Ethics provides a paper entitled “Leaders, Values, and Organizational Climate: Examining Leadership Strategies for Establishing an Organizational Climate Regarding Ethics.”
Andrew D. Clarke presents an exegetical study on I Corinthians 1-6, exploring the relationship between secular and Christian models of leadership. This was helpful for understanding how the apostle Paul dealt with the different forces at play in the church.
