Erwin McManus said, "There comes a time when you have to stop being full of potential and be potent."

In my experience (I'm pretty young - 38) but I've noticed that stuff just doesn't happen. Annointing, you must have. Submission to his leading - what else? Prayer - much prayer - without a doubt. But pencil to paper. A lot of talking with your voluntter staff. Dreaming. Critical thinking. Arguing. Sacrificing and driving for a mission. Living for people beyond your generation ...

The Minister's MBA has been an awesome catalyst for spiritual growth of a different kind for me.

IF you are more vision than manager; IF you are great in ideas, but short on practicality; IF you need a "legend" for the map ... get this book.

Format: Paperback
In The Minister's MBA, George Babbes (Professor of Marketing and Strategy at Azusa Pacific University) and Michael Zigarelli (Professor of Management at Charleston Southern University) offer ministry leaders a crash course in business management concepts to use in churches and parachurch/non-profit organizations. Much of the book covers typical topics that would be covered in lectures and textbooks in any graduate school of management, but the authors (both of whom work with churches and parachurch/non-profit organizations) try to show how these secular management tools can be used in ministry settings. The authors claim that "despite the moral failure of some business leaders, the pathway to operational excellence and maximum impact - the very things for which so many ministry leaders pray - are also found and perfected in the business world. . . . God has placed at your disposal a tremendous array of powerful management tools - value-neutral tools that, when used properly, will take your ministry where you've always dreamed it could go" (p. 7, 9).

Nothing in the book is revolutionary if one has read other church administration or church leadership books, but the unique feature is in the authors' presentation of the material. Throughout the book, the authors develop a theme that parallels the design of a typical one-year executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) program. The book is divided into three sections that the authors call "semesters" and each section has four brief chapters that the authors call "courses" for each semester. The overall curriculum theme and the packaging of the material are very clever. Even the "shape" of the book lends to more of a guidebook format than a textbook.

This site kind of book you read slowly and taking notes. In order to implement all elements suggested may take time and more than a superficial reading. This book is not an "inspirational" book, but it does inspire us to do ministry more efficiently and coherently. Give it a try and see if you can implement it in your church.
