OverviewFour Faces of a Leader: What It Takes to Move Your Church Forward
by Bob Rhoden
Do you want to be the change the world is looking for?
Are you eager to move your church into a new dimension of growth and maturity? Four Faces of a Leader can utterly transform you as a leader and those you lead. Not with bells and whistles, but with a soft whisper of truth. By emphasizing the leadership priorities Jesus demonstrated in the Gospels, Bob Rhoden shares practical applications for all pastors, whether they serve 1,000 or 100 members.
Like a personal mentor providing intergenerational truths, this book challenges, inspires, informs, and encourages. Based on four leadership “faces” of Shepherd, Servant, Steward, and Seer, this is a solid roadmap of practical insights and uplifting encouragement drawn from Bob’s many years of experience and success both as a pastor and a denominational leader.
