Unhealthy Church Boards
Bringing Health to Unhealthy Ministries
For Churches in Transition: Part 2
Many church leaders and church boards fail to lead in a way that reflects Christ’s character or the excellence God’s work requires. Almost always, such failure is a consequence of not understanding or obeying Biblical leadership. Central issues like the unity of the Spirit and Fruit of the Spirit get lost in the details of management, personal agendas, and conflict. Leadership in the church is fundamentally different from leadership in the secular world. The Church is Christ’s and everything done in leading His Church must be done Christ’s way and in His spirit.
This manual is a companion manual to the Church Board Training Manual, addressing the problem of unhealthy church boards. It identifies 12 types of unhealthy church boards and provides specific strategies for working with and transforming such boards.
