You've seen or heard the promises:

  • Proven leadership strategies.
  • Grow your church by 30 percent.
  • Increase your budget through sound marketing principles.

The lure of success can be seductive, and the adoption of secular standards or methods to achieve it may seem a small but necessary price to pay.

Brian J. Dodd, however, holds out a different model for us, the model of the apostle Paul who acted in accord with kingdom principles and was empowered by the Spirit of God. Worldly standards are stood on their head in order that ministry reflect the power and presence of the Lord. Dodd helps you to see the necessity of prayer, followership, partnership, servanthood and willingness to run against the current if you are to lead where God wants you to lead.

Here is a book for all who want to put church leadership on an apostolic footing.

"I pick up few books that get to the heart of a matter so clearly and reflect God's heart so passionately. Brian Dodd offers a clarion call to forsake worldly definitions of leadership that drive Christianity toward impotence and irrelevance in our day and to join God on the road less traveled, where the transforming presence of his Spirit will craft you into a useful vessel fit to serve among his people. You'll be surprised where it leads, and you'll never regret the journey."

Wayne Jacobsen, author of He Loves Me and Authentic Relationships
