1 in stockCompare
Pastors have been entrusted with leading the people of God. The shepherds of Gods flock must protect them from and guide them through the many dangers believers face. Although ultimately the Church is led by Christ, pastors are to provide godly examples of what it means to be a follower of the Lord. Consequently, who leads the church, the type of authority they are given, how they relate to one another, to whom they are accountable, and how they are selected are of utmost importance to the life and health of Gods people. This book provides the biblical, historical, theological, and practical foundation of the crucial task of leading Gods people.
