Maitland, FL (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
There are many who come to the ministry knowing how to speak and lead but unsure how to manage a church. In The Complete Guide to Church Management: Implementing Change Through Management Excellence ($18.99, paperback, 978-1-61379-755-6; $33.99, hardcover, 978-1-61379-756-3), an informative new Xulon title, co-authors M.L. Donnellan and Alan P. Naumann, M.Div., help pastors and lay leaders to identify problems and implement positive changes in all of the management functions of the church. Included within is everything pastors and lay leaders need to know about all of the basic functions of church management—from administration, to volunteer and board development, to strategic planning, to stewardship, to community involvement and much more.
“There is no other handbook available today that provides such comprehensive and practical strategies for biblical management of churches based on implementing changes,” the co-authors say. “Implementation of these strategies could revolutionize the ability of a church to achieve their mission.”
The co-authors are both uniquely qualified to write on these topics with authority. Donnellan has the spiritual gift of administration but found she had to use it in the secular nonprofit community because of the resistance from pastors and churches to change and to the idea that the management functions should be done differently. Naumann has more than 40 years’ experience as a pastor and knows firsthand the struggles associated with implementing change and upgrading the management functions of churches. They believe passionately that management excellence has a biblical mandate.
