Discerning Leadership (Bishop Graham Cray)
Bishop Graham Cray champions a revolution in leadership through renewed dependence on the church's primary leader: the Holy Spirit. With profound implications for resourcing the local church for mission, this is a trenchant must-read.
The Inner Life of a Christian Leader (Chris Blakeley and Sue Howard)
Much teaching on leadership focuses on skills and abilities, tactics and strategies - the outward aspects of leadership. But Christian leadership is always going to be more concerned with the inner life of the leader.
Loving Volunteers (Richard Steel)
Shock revelation: most members of church teams are volunteers! So how should a local-church leader lead volunteers effectively? This short, practical guide is an essential resource for the emotionally intelligent leader.
Embracing Chaos (Tim Harle)
Tim Harle ponders the seeming chaos of organic growth and development, drawing practical lessons to prompt vibrant change and re-organisation in the church.
Understanding and Using Power (Roger Preece)
Leadership without corrupting you soul: Exploring the dynamics and characteristics of leadership, Roger Preece offers a very practical guide to our uses and (potential)abuses of power.
Leadership and Social Networking (Richard Moy and Anna Drew)
Updating your ministry status: Richard Moy and Anna Drew explore how social media can enhance our community lives, mission and understanding of people.
Leading a Whole-life Disciplemaking Church (Tracy Cotterill and Neil Hudson)
Tracy Cotterell and Neil Hudson show the importance of shifting the focus to how churches can best equip people for living as disciples Monday to Saturday.
Engaging Gen Y (James Lawrence)
James Lawrence explores the key differences between the 'generations' and the different expectations they have of leadership.
The Cross-Shaped Leader (Ian Rawley)
Many voices have argued in recent years that what the church desperately needs is strong leaders. But strong leaders will only be worth following and worthy of imitation to the extent that they are also cross-shaped leaders. The apostle Paul should be our mentor and his quest to imitate the self-giving, servant leadership of Christ should be our guide.
The Quantum Leap - From Assistant to Senior Minister (Adrian Beavis)
How to ease the transition to senior leadership (or the quantum leap of becoming a vicar).
Leading in Demanding Times (Peter Shaw and Graham Shaw)
Leadership roles in any context - church, charity, public sector, or commercial organisation - inevitably involve leading through demanding times. This book looks at the contemporary reality leaders operate within.
Future titles in the series will also be available to buy through the CPAS shop.
