Institutions matter. They give us an opportunity to have an influence for the common good that far outlasts us. But we often assume that institutions are at cross-purposes with dynamic communities, with personal vocational calling, and with core human values. We view them somewhat cynically as, perhaps, a necessary evil. Institutions, far from that, remain essential to human flourishing. They are the very means by which communities thrive, individual vocations are fulfilled, and society is changed for the good. As a result, we all need to learn how to work effectively within institutions. That is just what Gordon Smith provides. He unpacks the core of institutional intelligence-the wisdom of working effectively within an organization. At the same time, he shows how team leaders, directors, executives, board members, key stakeholders, and employees can avoid what is often their greatest source of stress on the job-working with the institutional character of their organizations. Focusing on the nonprofit sector, Smith unlocks the essential elements of how institutions function in a productive, healthy manner. Church staff, educators, and those in service agencies can all thrive by understanding these dynamics instead of fighting against them. By developing this essential vocational capacity, we and those around us can not only fulfill ourselves but also a mission that is larger than we are.

An overseer...must be above reproach. 1 Timothy 3:2

Scripture holds leaders and teachers of the Word to an incredibly high standard. And for good reason. Shepherding God's people into salvation and spiritual growth is an enormous responsibility. Even more now than ever, today's church needs leaders who faithfully proclaim the Word of God and equip believers to live it out. But great leaders need great role models.

Bestselling author John MacArthur has compiled, from the internationally renowned Shepherd's Conference, the best-ever messages for Christian leaders--now available in a single volume. Alongside MacArthur's candid, instructive writings you'll find the works of other proven ministry leaders, including John Piper, Steven Lawson, RC Sproul, Ligon Duncan, and Al Mohler.

Whether you're a pastor, elder, or leader in your church, or you desire to be more effective in your spiritual leadership, this book will help you learn how to . . .

  • guide others with integrity and conviction
  • deliver God's Word with passion and power
  • accurately interpret and apply God's Word
  • When you accept the challenge to be a leader who follows God's standard both in ministry and personally, you will become better equipped to fulfill your calling to lead with excellence.

    Beware leaders...Read with caution...Life-changing principles and concepts lie ahead...This is a timely book that needs to be read, pondered, and applied by the Body of Christ. And here is why...All cultures are marred by sin, including our own culture and its concepts and models of leadership. The kingdom culture supersedes them all and is designed to permeate and infiltrate all cultures of the world. Stacy's book leads us through this maze with a radical new way of thinking, living, and leading in the kingdom culture as it confronts the cultures of the world. This style of kingdom leadership does not compete with culture-it confronts it. Stacy is very transparent in his attempt to live and practice this style of leadership. He brings together a powerful book in describing how to practically put these concepts and principles into practice. Dr. Terry Taylor President Emeritus, US Navigators

    This book brings the best of leadership theory and research together with biblical reflection and examples of leadership in action to offer a practical guide to Christian leaders.

    Combining expertise in leadership studies and biblical studies, Justin Irving and Mark Strauss explore how leadership models have moved from autocratic and paternalistic leader-centered models toward an increased focus on followers. The authors show how contemporary theories such as transformational leadership, authentic leadership, and servant leadership take an important step toward prioritizing and empowering followers who work with leaders to accomplish organizational goals. Irving and Strauss organize their book around "nine empowering practices," making it accessible to students, church leaders, and business leaders.

    Integrating solid research in leadership studies with biblical and theological reflection on the leadership ideas that are most compatible with Christian faith, this book is an important resource for all Christian students of leadership.

    There's a leadership crisis in the church.

    Every leadership model claims to have all the answers to the challenges of leadership. Each perspective emphasizes certain qualities, and we search desperately for answers in the absence of clear direction. But there's no simple leadership formula that meets every need we have in life and ministry.

    Challenging the conventional wisdom about what makes for a good leader, Daniel Montgomery calls us to a countercultural perspective on leadership rooted in our Creator. He presents a new framework for leadership, not just a beckoning to further pragmatism, relentless productivity, or a reactionary cultural fad. He helps us see leadership as a mosaic of five characteristics--conviction, creativity, courage, collaboration, and contemplation--reflective of the very image of the triune God.

    Armed with this perspective, we will be able to see, strive after, and celebrate the great and complex vision of leadership God has called us to--for the flourishing of our homes, churches, and workplaces.
