A guide for pastors to become highly effective in leadership and administration. The role of the minister and your personal enjoyment of your vocation requires skills to develop vision, provide hope, tend to church leaders, build a staff team, deal with conflict, manage time, plan strategically, craft policies that serve you, create vibrant worship services, implement an effective visiting plan, and negotiate for yourself. This book builds your skills to enhance your leadership style, emphasize the right things to do, provide leadership in raising annual and capital funds, build attendance and participation, evaluate staff, and get ahead and stay ahead in worship preparation. Creative tips are provided for how to be among your people, encourage vision, connect with your people when preaching, solve problems, develop the art of the business lunch, avoid common mistakes that can get you into hot water, and administer the work of the pastor. Few of these skills are taught in seminary. This is the iceberg that lies beneath the surface and which is largely unseen and unknown. And yet, when others speak of you as an effective pastor, these are the skills and the arts which undergird your ministry.
