SHEPHERDING THE CHURCH If God has called you to spiritual leadership, be advised-He never promised flowery beds of ease. But He has given us what we need to lead His flock to growth and glory. We live in a most challenging time in history, and leading has never been tougher. Joe Stowell charts the course biblically to enable shepherds to do the best of things in the worst of times. How do we lead effectively in this changing generation? By focusing on timeless targets, such as character, effective proclamation, spiritual giftedness, and spiritual growth. As a third-generation minister who has pastored churches in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan, Dr. Stowell speaks from experience in his trademark heart-to-heart style. In Shepherding the Church he ministers to ministers who are longing for a word of encouragement.
Times are changing. The Truth never will. It's tough to be a pastor today. Christians who stand up for what God has said are disregarded and labeled right-wing extremists. Political correctness and tolerance of anything but godly character is the norm. So how do ministers lead God's people in this pagan culture? How do they shepherd the flock as the lights fade dimmer and the nights grow colder?
This book is not about programs. It not about developing the best techniques for numerical growth. Rather it is a discussion of the heart of the matter--the heart of the shepherd. In "Shepherding the Church," Dr. Stowell takes a look at what it takes to be a truly effective leader from the inside out. He encourages today's leaders to focus on their own character, spiritual growth, and spiritual gifts. Examine some heart issues like: how do I prove to my congregation that I'm trustworthy? How do I lead by loving? How do I overcome insecurities? How can I transform lives with my preaching? How do I lead my flock by the way I live my life? How do I persevere?
Even in these tough times, effective leadership is possible. Learn from Dr. Stowell as he encourages today's leaders to keep their eyes on the non-negotiables of Christian ministry.
