Church Board Training Manual
For Churches in Transition
Many church boards teams do not work well. They have trouble understanding Biblical leadership, the unity of the Spirit or how to follow the leadership of the Spirit. They are good people – they love God and endeavor to lead holy lives – but they are not effective leaders in helping build Christ’s Church Christ’s way.
Interim Pastoral Ministries has identified this lack of leadership and developed this Training Manual to train church boards.
Section One of this Training Manual provides a Biblical basis and proven leadership principles for Ten Core Essentials of leadership. It also includes Practical Application questions and recommendations for the Interim Pastor and board members to evaluate the effectiveness of the the governing board. Section Two gives practical resources for implementing the Biblical framework laid out in Section One.
Ten Core Essentials
- Faith in God
- Honesty and Integrity
- Unity of Spirit
- Kingdom Vision People … Seeing the Big Picture
- Shepherd Leaders … Not Just Directors
- Clearly Defined Roles
