Good Introductory Volume,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Staff Your Church for Growth: Building Team Ministry in the 21st Century (Paperback)
This book wasn't exactly what I was wanting, but it will undoubtedly be helpful for many pastors and church leaders facing a multi-staff situation for the first time. McIntosh offers an excellent overview of the rationale for having more than one staff person, and the pitfalls to avoid in hiring additional staff. For anyone leading a church from a single staff to multi-staff ministry, this book is not one to miss. The graphs and tables he offers are particularly insightful.
When I purchased this book, I was looking for an aid to keep a multi-staff church moving smoothly, not something to start it effectively. McIntosh's work is very weak in the help it offers to senior pastors who are looking for insights into better leadership of existing staff. If you want that kind of volume, then look elsewhere.
