Clergy aren't the only key leaders in a church. Lay leaders are the engine that drive the bus for most congregations.
But the leadership challenges facing lay people in a church setting are different that the leadership challenges they face in any other part of life. Sure, a vestry leader or church council member or elder might be an enormous success in a leadership position in the business world, but can you handle a staff situation involving a key volunteer the same way as you would a human resources conversation?
Or how about a conflict between a ministry funding partner and a key staff person? The leadership challenges in a church or faith-based non-profit are built on solid relational skills, Biblical problem solving, and strategic thinking. Know how to navigate this maze of challenges?
