Item Description...
Overview
This work is unique in bridging the gap between systematic theology and the task of giving leadership in the congregation. The chapters provide solid theological and contextual direction on the themes of worship, education, fellowship, stewardship, evangelism, global conections, ecumenism, and social ministry in a model that provides practical information for broadening and renewing congregational ministry/mission.

Publishers Description
This book argues compellingly for the centrality of mission in understanding the church and provides a model for congregational leadership that will help move congregations beyond a maintenance mentality to vital engagement with the world God loves. Nessan's model of congregational leadership is strongly centered on worship life of a congregation and the entirety of the church's ministry. The chapters provide solid theological and practical direction on the themes of worship, education, fellowship, stewardship, evangelism, global connections, ecumenism, and social ministry. It is a book that will find a home in both the academy and the parish a textbook for seminarians and a guide and resource for pastors and lay congregational leaders.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
For EVERY Pastoral Leader's Library  Jan 5, 2009
Too many churches spend an inordinant amount of energy re-building the proverbial wheel - in mission, strategy, program development, and conflict resolution. This book provides a solid biblical and organizational groundwork for developing and sharpening a church's mission, and then making it the center of it's actions and efforts. Churches, more than any company or human organization, need to move beyond maintenance all the way to mission!
