Great seminary text,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Governance and Ministry: Rethinking Board Leadership (Paperback)
As one who works with pastors from across all denominations be assured that few are prepared to run a congregation. This text is a must read for those aspiring to become pastors as well as all those pastors who don't feel comfortable with the administrative responsibilities they have. Hotchkiss gives three simple qualities an organization must have and it's easy to apply those qualities to existing ministries. He provides lots of support and information for changing a weak organizational structure and for improving communication on others. "Governance and Ministry" stands alone among all other books I've reviewed on church organization and administration. Buy a copy for all members of your governing board.
