Transforming Leadership sets forth the core values and leadership practices that can bring fundamental transformation to the life of the local church. Transforming Leadership : New Vision for a Church in Mission. by Craig L. Nessan and Norma Cook Everist.

Transforming Leadership : New Vision for a Church in Mission. Committed to the vitality and mission of the congregation, the authors promise neither a quick fix.

Your vision is different than your mission . Your mission should be closely tied to the Great Commission: making disciples, baptizing, and teaching. Your vision is what the mission will look like when it is lived out in your church and your community. It is the desired change, or the end result. Just to be clear, a church vision statement is not equal to your vision for your church. A vision statement is a memorable summary of the church vision. Aubrey Malpurs, in his classic book Advanced Strategic Planning, says that vision encourages unity, creates energy, provides purpose, fosters risk taking, enhances leadership, promotes excellence, and sustains ministry. Previously Associate Professor of Contextual Theology at the same institution, Nessan authored Give Us This Day: A Lutheran Proposal for Ending World Hunger in the 'Lutheran Voices' series published by Augsburg Fortress.

Transforming Leadership sets forth the core values and leadership practices that can bring fundamental transformation to the life of the local church. Based on experience and research, Everist and Nessan explore three dimensions of transforming leadership: (1) how leaders are formed and transformed, (2) how transforming leadership can renew congregations and focus their ministry to do justice, and (3) how congregations can be transformed by empowering all members to use their gifts for ministry. Committed to the vitality and mission of the congregation, the authors promise neither a quick fix nor easy answers. Transforming leadership, they have found, is deeply rooted in theological conviction, expressed in genuine love for the people one serves, and cultivated through wise practices. The book grapples with challenging congregational dynamics, promotes the ministry of all the baptized, and provides vision for the lasting renewal of the church in mission.

I know this book is fantastic, not because I have read it, because I haven't yet, but because the person I loaned it to is finding it so useful and so helpful I don't have the heart to ask for it back! I will simply have to order another!

  • Kajishakar
Very good book.
  • MrDog
I was very satisfied with the delivery and moreso with the condition of the book. It does not have the markings or highlites that it was thought to have. Well-pleased.

The upside: an easily understood application of family systems theory for church leaders. The downside: it takes family systems theory too uncritically, and isn't clear enough (self-differentiation?) between this book and the earlier Friedman and Steinke corpus. If you've not read that material, this is a good place to start.
  • Keramar
This was a comprehensive book and easy to read. Topics were relevant for issues addressed in ministry and many good reflection questions. I will definitely use this as an ongoing resource in my ministry.
Great book. Used for Elements of Ministry coursework.
