The Church in America is facing a leadership crisis. We have deviated significantly from the simple nature of the Church as God designed and nowhere is that seen more than in the leadership concepts most local congregations implement and utilize. If you desire to be a part of a leadership team that is committed to lateral growth instead of just vertical growth, if you desire to be a part of a leadership team committed to seeing everyone do the work of the ministry rather than a handful of "professionals", and if you desire to be a part of a leadership team that is committed to the wholeness of the Church, you will find this to be an intriguing and challenging book.
About the Author
DWIGHT P. SMITH - Is the founder of Saturation Church Planting International (www.scpglobal.org). He currently works with a growing number of church leaders around the world who are posturing the churches they lead toward a goal of reaching every man, woman & child in their nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in this generation. These churches bare witness to the truth behind these principles. Dwight's firm conviction is that if the leadership in the church today will submit themselves back to a biblical theology of leadership we will see the whole body of Christ mobilized into His mission. Dwight's experience comes from formerly serving as President of United World Mission and the Alliance for Saturation Church Planting. He is also the founding Pastor of Cornerstone Bible Church in San Jose, California. In addition to his doctorate in Missiology Dwight has traveled to more than 70 nations, two mission terms in Columbia, South America, and much of his life has been spent exegeting the church around the world. Dwight and his wife, Patti, continue to travel to many nations each year, spending time with indigenous leadership teams and helping them build reality from these principles. When they are not on the road they spilt their time between their four children and 11 grandchildren, spread across 3 nations and two continents.
