Growing Leaders book
James Lawrence offers reflections on leadership, life and Jesus: from leadership skills and styles to discerning personal calling, avoiding the 'red zone' of stress, developing character, and living as part of God's people.
Seven out of ten Christian leaders feel overworked, four in ten suffer financial pressures, only two in ten have had management training, and 1,500 give up their job over a ten-year period. At the same time, as financial restrictions affect the deployment of full-time church ministers, more people than ever are needed for leadership roles in local congregations, involved in every area of church work.
This bestselling book explores the challenge of raising up new leaders, as well as helping existing leaders to continue their journey to maturity.
