Leadership in Constant Change – By Terry R. Hamrick
Congregations no longer have the income to do all the things they have always done. Hard choices are required. Mission and ministry budgets are being reduced, often on a quarterly basis. Beloved ministers are having their compensation reduced and sometimes even having their positions eliminated. Active lay leaders are being pressed to move to another church because they want their children to have fully functioning programs. The signs of stress are all around.
Change. It keeps coming. The question is: How will leaders respond? What can they do to help their congregations when old ways no longer work? Leadership in Constant Change: Embracing a New Missional Reality guides congregational leaders to understand adaptive leadership principles and to embrace missional qualities on their way to discovering God's vision for their churches.
