by David L. McKenna, Christ Centered Leadership Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Christ Centered Leadership books, "If a leader is a Christian, what difference does it make?" Giant strides have been made in secular leadership theory toward a Christian viewpoint. Priority is now given to character as well as competence, accountability as well as power, transformation as well as transaction, and servanthood as well as success. But these qualities apply to secular as well as to Christian leadership. So, the question remains, "What difference does it make?" David McKenna finds the answer in the Incarnation of Jesus Christ--a divine act for him and a defining attitude for us. Philippians 2:11-15 sets the standard and gives the details. "Your attitude should be the same as Jesus Christ" means following his call to the cross, where we die to self and sacrifice all self-interest in position, power, and prestige in order to serve obediently, faithfully, and humbly for the good of others and the glory of God. Christ-centered leadership is not an extension of the highest and best of human leadership. Radical obedience to the call of Christ and utter dependence upon the Holy Spirit make a substantive difference. In the most practical terms, Incarnation continues in us when we live fully, lead freely, and go where he wants us to go.
by Won Sang Lee, Pastoral Leadership Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Pastoral Leadership books, In ascending to heaven, Jesus Christ gave the church the Great Commission to expand the gospel to all nations. Despite this biblical commission, it is still an unfinished task. As leaders of local churches, pastors play a crucial part in this endeavor. Pastoral leadership principles have varied widely throughout history, yet it is interesting to discover the similarities between pastoral leadership principles practiced by John Chrysostom (AD 347-407) in Antioch and Constantinople, and Won Sang Lee (1937-) in Washington, DC. Despite ministering 1600 years apart, both pastors share the same core values: care for people, Christ-like character, biblical preaching, and world missions. This suggests that continued emphasis on these principles will play a significant role in fulfilling the Great Commission, independent of time and place.
by Mike Bonem, Leading From The Second Chair Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Leading From The Second Chair books, LEADING FROM THE SECOND CHAIR will raise awareness of the need for strong leaders in secondary positions. It will describe the value they can bring to their organization and to primary leaders when they are serving at their full potential. It will reshape the way they view their role, with an emphasis on their own responsibility as leaders. It recognizes the unique challenges and frustrations of serving in a subordinate position and equips these leaders with the attitudes and skills that they will need to survive and thrive in this new paradigm. Because of the scarcity of resources for second chair leaders, particularly those in the church, this book will offer a practical way to improve the performance of any organization. Leading Congregational Change discussed the importance of a "vision community"--a diverse group of key members who discern and implement the vision for a congregation--to guide the transformation of a church. This work will extend the theme of an empowered leadership team as we explore how individual clergy and laity can lead effectively.

Download books, تأتي هذه الترجمة بعد 50 سنة على ترجمة الخوري يوحنا الحلو لهذه الاعترافات. وهي منقولة عن اللاتينية، وتميّزها هوامش وتعليقات، يصعُب فهم النص من دونها، وضعها العلّامة بيار دي لابريول، إضافة إلى معجم عربي لاتيني فرنسي لمصطلحات وألفاظ القديس أوغستينوس. يُعدّ أوغستينوس، من أشهر آباء الكنيسة، ومن أبرز مؤسّسيها. وهو من أصل بربريّ، ترَوْمَنَت أسرته. وكان أبوه متشبّثاً بالوثنيّة القديمة، في حين كانت أمّه "مونيكا" مسيحيّة متّقدة الإيمان، أثّرت في ابنها أيّما تأثير، حتى بعد أن تجاوز طور المراهقة وطيش الشباب، تاب واعتنق دينها. كان أوغستينوس قاضياً وداعية وخطيباً، يُلقّب بالأفريقيّ، وكان فعلاً أفريقيّا أصيلاً، يلبس قميصا أبيض من صوف ويضع على رأسه قلنسوة بيضاء وفي رجليه نعل، ويجوب المقاطعة الأفريقية على ظهر حمار أو بغلة، أو على قدميه، مقاوماً الفساد والشعوذة وبقايا الوثنيّة. لهذا النصّ قيمة مرجعيّة تاريخيّة، إذ نقل الفلسفة الروحانيّة اليونانيّة من ثوبها الأفلاطونيّ الحديث، وخاصّة الأفلوطينيّ، إلى أجواء مسيحّية صرف، مُمهّدًا بذلك الطريق إلى الفكر اللاهوتيّ الغربي. ولئن طغت العقيدة المسيحيّة على أعمال أوغستينوس الأخرى، فإنّ "الاعترافات" مثّلت الفترة التاريخيّة التي تأرجح فيها الفكر الإنسانيّ بين العقلانيّة والتصوّف، كما مثّلت نهاية التاريخ القديم وبداية العصر الوسيط. في هذه "الاعترافات" مراجعة للنفس وتأصيل للنقد الذاتي ومشروع روحاني ترك تأثيرًا كبيرًا على المسيحية من بعده. وهي بمثابة "شاهد" أو علامة فكرية بارزة، في مسيرة الحضارة الكونية.
