This inspiring and informative book is perfect for church leaders who realize that leading a congregation is less about business and more about spirituality. Author Joan Gray challenges elders and deacons to see themselves as spiritual leaders and equips them to lead alongside their pastors. It’s a perfect book for a church session to read together.

Gray lays out a variety of leadership styles and helps leaders understand when each is appropriate. She also provides resources for dealing with relationships in the church and identifies ways churches can be supportive of the spiritual leadership of elders and deacons. Her sailboat vs rowboat metaphor is spot on.

This book was written for the Presbyterian Church (USA) but speaks to, and is easily adaptable to, any church with a presbyterian form of government.
