This book contains tried and true principles that have been practised over years for church growth and management. It deserves to be studied. I highly recommend it to you, your staff and your leadership team.

In a clear and plain way Ian communicates insights into leadership which transfer across the denominational divides. He understands who a leaders should be and what a leader must do. For those who have eyes to see, this book contains pure gold.

Dr Jagelman researches contemporary leadership issues carefully and is able to integrate research and experience clearly in his writing. The book is a good and challenging read. The case studies will draw you in like a good mystery thriller.
