Building Leaders: Blueprints for Developing Leadership at Every Level of Your Church, Aubrey Malphurs and Will Mancini: Baker Books: Grand Rapids, Michigan, 2004
Building Leaders: Aubrey Malphurs and Will Mancini (Baker Books)
This book, the second in an excellent trilogy on leadership [Being Leaders, and Leading Leaders – one of the best texts on Church Board development] addresses the question: How can a Church empower emerging leaders to follow God into expanded ministry?
It provides a Biblical blueprint for finding and developing leaders – all in the local church context. How to Grow Leaders [chapter 9], Designing the Leadership Development Process [chapter 10] are a few of the chapters that address the profound challenge Churches have in living up to their calling to be the culture for leadership development. The guides, questions and surveys included in the text are excellent resources to help church leaders design a unique leadership development model within the realities of limited resources and budget.
Beyond the book, Aubrey Malphurs is the president of The Malphurs Group – a training and consulting organization. Their website: www.malphursgroup.com provides a number of free resources…and a free newsletter.
