About-

Are you a recently elected church board member who hasn't received training for your new position?

Are you a current board member disillusioned by negative experiences and interpersonal conflicts?

Education specialist Michael Anthony asked a cross-section of almost a hundred pastors and church officers, in addition to staff members and denominational officials, to give their input about what is happening in church boards across America.

The results of the survey were compiled into a comprehensive handbook that addresses topics such as:

-Developing a vision statement
-Writing job descriptions
-Setting long- and short-range goals
-Facing financial storms
-Resolving interpersonal conflicts
-Reviving a declining church

This unique, multi-denominational training resource emphasizes developing a team structure. It can be used for individual instruction, group discussions, and orientation sessions. The case studies clearly identify situations and leadership experiences common to many church boards.
