The book is divided into five main sections: the spiritual leader’s heart (qualifications, attributes, friends, priorities, schedule, etc.), the spiritual leader’s ministry (soul-winning, overseeing, administrating, leading in stewardship, overcoming barriers, developing an annual plan), the spiritual leader’s pulpit (preaching, leading a service, using music, using technology), the spiritual leader’s team (wife, children, new leaders, standards of conduct, staff, vision), and the spiritual leader’s trials (grace as his motivator, critics, response, crises, intervening). This thoroughly Scriptural book has a bibliography, name index, and Scripture index.
