Leadership in the Church
Truth in Life Series
by Ron Halbrook

"One of the greatest needs in the church of Christ is effective spiritual leadership."

True or false?

If true, how do we get such leadership? This workbook is designed to show that spiritual growth is the key to leadership.

Individual spiritual growth and maturity inspires holiness in the family circle and in turn produces strong spiritual leaders in the church. This workbook highlights the process of spiritual growth which produces men capable of leading worship services, capable of preaching and teaching, and capable of serving as elders and deacons. It also discusses difficulties applying some of the qualifications for elders, the importance of a woman's role, and cultural challenges faced by leaders. Rather than being heavy with text, this workbook is formatted with questions designed to generate class participation and discussion. Effective teaching utilizes the knowledge and skills of the students to guide them toward the proper application of truth. To be effective, leaders above all must be men of great faith in God and must be grounded in the truth of God's Word. The lessons in this workbook require an open Bible and an open heart. 13 Lessons, Workbook.

    Our congregation is just completing a 13-week study directed by this workbook. The book was very effective in directing discussions. The author clearly states in the introduction that this work is not intended to be a textbook. But a guide. I found the lessons to be of the right length to cover in a class period. And the study covered the topics thoroughly. I recommend this workbook.
