From the Back Cover
Every Leader Needs a Coach.
Many ministry leaders serving in churches find themselves overwhelmed, disillusioned, and depressed by the enormous and challenging task of leading and serving others. When leaders aren't healthy, the result is often an unhealthy church.
Every church leader -- from full time ministers to volunteer leaders -- needs a gospel coach, someone to come along side them with words of truth and wisdom to encourage, admonish and help them in their life and leadership.
This comprehensive, gospel-centered resource shows you how to disciple, mentor and shepherd leaders in a loving yet focused manner, probing the heart for compulsive unbelief or selfish motivations, disobedience, and sin, leading people back to the transforming power of the gospel through faith, repentance, and obedience.
