Leadership Next: Changing Leaders In A Changing Culture
3 in stockCompare
Our culture is constantly changing, as fast as – or faster than – we can adapt to it. In this context Christian leaders have not only to acquire new insights and skills, but also to unlearn what they previously knew. Even our definition of leadership is under review.
In this sequel to the acclaimed ‘Church Next’, Eddie Gibbs examines how Christian leadership might change in the light of new cultural conditions. He considers recent developments in leadership styles, from hierarchies to networks and compartments to connections, and assesses the dynamics of leadership teams. Having specified the healthy characteristics of Christian leaders, he then explains how they can be identified and nurtured.
This incisive analysis, from an expert in church growth, will serve as a comprehensive resource for current and potential Christian leaders, and those who teach and mentor them.
Eddie Gibbs is Donald A. McGavran Professor of Church Growth at the School of World Mission, Fuller Theological Seminary. He has served as an Anglican minister in England, Latin America and the United States, and is the author of several books, including (with Ian Coffey) ‘ChurchNext’ (IVP).
