In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership

In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership

Henri Nouwen was a spiritual thinker with an unusual capacity to write about the life of Jesus and the love of God in ways that have inspired countless people to trust life more fully. Most widely read among the over 40 books Father Nouwen wrote is In the Name of Jesus. For a society that measures successful leadership in terms of the effectiveness of the individual, Father Nouwen offers a counter definition that is witnessed by a “communal and mutual experience.” For Nouwen, leadership cannot function apart from the community. His wisdom is grounded in the foundation that we are a people “called.” This beautiful guide to Christian Leadership is the rich fruit of Henri Nouwen’s own journey as one of the most influential spirtiual leaders of the 20th century.

if one is a mormon what steps must be taken to lodge a formal complaint with the church leadership?

Question by jacarre: if one is a mormon what steps must be taken to lodge a formal complaint with the church leadership?
additionally what happens to the people who “vote” in opposition to a church leader being sustained?

Best answer:

Answer by gumby
I don’t know about the formal complaint. I would guess that if you have an issue with your bishop, you go to the stake president. BUT it better be a real issue and not a “I don’t like that he gave this calling to that person”.

As for the voting in opposition, I have seen it done once. The bishop said he would meet with those who had opposed sustaining after the meeting to discuss they’re reasons. In this particular case, the person that was supposed to be sustained still ended up with the calling. I have no idea why someone opposed them being called to that calling.

What Everyone should know about Leadership and Church Structure (In the Pulpit and Out)

What Everyone should know about Leadership and Church Structure (In the Pulpit and Out)

A comprehensive book of leadership material that EVERYONE should read, whether in a position of leadership or not. This material was written with the support and backing of pastor and church, and thoroughly scrutinized by godly men. It presents a scriptural view of the subject of leadership, taking care to not denominationalize it. It only defines the pieces of church structure, leaving the utilization of these pieces to the leading of the Holy Spirit. An entire chapter will discuss what it means to be a leader understanding the call, knowing the commitment, placing leaders into office, launching ministries, developing principles of leadership, recognizing the characteristics of a godly leader. Discussion will include things that can hinder our effectiveness, and explore topics that oftentimes might be skirted authority, submission, priorities and relationships. It defines the role of the pastor, look at the ministry of elders, deacons, and other lea! dership areas in the church. And the congregation is not omitted, rather discussion is included of their supporting role in seeing the vision of the ministry carried out. Lastly, the legal or governmental structure of the church incorporation is defined, and some examples and suggestions for how its structure can be properly (and scripturally) implemented is included. The appendix contains a full teaching syllabus of each chapter, as well as samples of Articles of Incorporation and Constitution or Bylaws.

How much control should church leadership have over an individual’s personal outreach?

Question by LaLaLa: How much control should church leadership have over an individual’s personal outreach?
Like for example an individual wants to go speak or sing at another church on Sunday, a person wants to write a religious blog or articles, a person wants to lead a group of people in some type of outreach in the public…should should leadership be involved or discourage this type of behavior?
I should add what if you are part of church leadership? Church heads tend to be more controlling of those who are involved in church leadership…

Leading from the Second Chair: Serving Your Church, Fulfilling Your Role, and Realizing Your Dreams (Jossey-Bass Leadership Network Series)

Leading from the Second Chair: Serving Your Church, Fulfilling Your Role, and Realizing Your Dreams (Jossey-Bass Leadership Network Series)

LEADING FROM THE SECOND CHAIR will raise awareness of the need for strong leaders in secondary positions. It will describe the value they can bring to their organization and to primary leaders when they are serving at their full potential. It will reshape the way they view their role, with an emphasis on their own responsibility as leaders. It recognizes the unique challenges and frustrations of serving in a subordinate position and equips these leaders with the attitudes and skills that they will need to survive and thrive in this new paradigm.

Because of the scarcity of resources for second chair leaders, particularly those in the church, this book will offer a practical way to improve the performance of any organization. Leading Congregational Change discussed the importance of a “vision community”–a diverse group of key members who discern and implement the vision for a congregation–to guide the transformation of a church. This work will extend the theme of an empowered leadership team as we explore how individual clergy and laity can lead effectively.LEADING FROM THE SECOND CHAIR will raise awareness of the need for strong leaders in secondary positions.

As Christ Submits to the Church: A Biblical Understanding of Leadership and Mutual Submission

As Christ Submits to the Church: A Biblical Understanding of Leadership and Mutual Submission

What does the Bible really say about gender, the ethics of submission, and male-female roles? In this book, well-regarded theologian Alan Padgett offers a fresh approach to the debate. Through his careful interpretation of Paul’s letters and broader New Testament teaching, the author shows how Christ’s submission to the church models an appropriate understanding of gender roles and servant leadership. As Christ submits to the church, so all Christians must submit to, serve, and care for one another. Padgett articulates a creative approach to mutual submission and explores its practical outworking in the church today, providing biblical and ethical affirmation for equality in leadership.
