Leading with
the Spirit

A Handbook on Leadership and Management for Clergy

Thomas Ries &
Bruce Corrie, editors

Clergy leading faith-based institutions will find in this book practical tools to help them become effective stewards of people and resources in their organizations while being rooted in the Spirit An experienced and ecumenical group of clergy, policy leaders, and academics offer specific tools on important topics such as discovering the leader within, leading through changes, multicultural mission and management, spiritual entrepreneurship, creating a shared vision and strategy, and various topics on the stewardship of organizations.

As a twenty-five-year parish pastor, I found Leading with the Spirit to be compellingly academic and at the same time accessible to the average parish pastor or lay leader who is grasping for something solid in the often gelatinous world of “leadership literature.”

The editors have pulled together a diverse group of authors who succeed in making the body of research on church management and leadership practical through a case study approach. This book could become a launching pad for new leaders (or old!) who seek to rise in their ability to truly lead followers of Jesus into his mission in this changing world.
