While the author s theology is different from mine, there are still some good tools in this books that I found very helpful I am glad to have this book available to adapt for the right context and leaders. Very practical tool to help ministry leaders evaluate personal leadership styles, identify areas of strength and weakness, and fit within different ministry settings. Good overview of Christian Leadership. It s a good book if you re looking to become an effective Christian leader but it s dry and for a higher level of reading Just not my taste but it was for a class so Malphurs, Aubrey Being Leaders The Nature of Authentic Christian Leadership Grand Rapids, MI Baker Books, 2003.Compatibility There needs to be a suitable matching of pastor and church with the right fit in areas of doctrinal, theological and philosophical beliefs, core values, leadership style, ministry expression, personality, passion, priorities, experience, potential tenure, demographics, location, spouse and family satisfaction, financial fairness, and expectations p225 Capability T Malphurs, Aubrey Being Leaders The Nature of Authentic Christian Leadership Grand Rapids, MI Baker Books, 2003.Compatibility There needs to be a suitable matching of pastor and church with the right fit in areas of doctrinal, theological and philosophical beliefs, core values, leadership style, ministry expression, personality, passion, priorities, experience, potential tenure, demographics, location, spouse and family satisfaction, financial fairness, and expectations p225 Capability The leader s personal life should display evidence of character, competency, and credibility Character traits of trusting Christ, valuing the Bible, godliness, pure motives, being Spirit empowered, and servant leadership are essential Competency is needed in the timeless pastoral functions of leading, protecting and teaching, as well as general knowledge, task and relational skills, natural and spiritual gifts The new pastor should be strong in communication, convictions, courage, care and emotional health page 173, 182 Five emphases management, message, market, missions and ministries Malphur s Leadership Style Inventory p205 213 One thing I would reject is the tendency to leave decisions unresolved and require further meetings The reason is probably rooted in my personality Surveys such as the Malphur s Leadership Style Inventory reveal my natural team roles are executive and completer which suggest that I am disciplined, organised, conscientious and keen to get the job done and dusted Page 205 213 Dr Malphur s book is really helpful for pastors or elders who are thinking through what it means to be a leader within the church I don t agree with everything Malphur s said within the book, particular his view of staff lead vs elder lead church His definition of a leader is excellent and challenging to live out in ministry and life. A very well rounded book with many helpful tools on Church leadership There is some overlap with his other books, but that is to be expected with a prolific writer He goes against some of the emphasis today of a pluarility of Elders in the church, but keeps a balanced perspective.
