In recent years leadership in Protestant churches has tended to mirror the principles of secular management. This book offers a biblical antidote. Ben Campbell Johnson and Andrew Dreitcer explore the spirituality as it relates to the tasks of ministry. Drawing from years of experience teaching Christian spiritual formation, the authors urge church leaders to reach beyond the ordinary in their sense of God's presence in the mundane tasks of church administration. They show that true spirituality is more than simply making time for personal devotions; church leaders must also pursue a meaningful relationship with God expressed in a holistic vision of the church and its important role in society. Enhanced with questions for personal study or group discussion on the topics covered, Beyond the Ordinary will speal to anyone involved in church leadership.
