Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
Review: Designed to Lead
Designed to Lead
By Eric Geiger and Kevin Peck (Broadman & Holman)
Eric Geiger, co-author of Simple Church, and Kevin Peck, pastor of Austin Stone Community Church, have written a consummate work on leadership from a biblical perspective.
To quote the authors: “The Great Commission is Plan A; Jesus has no Plan B.”
The book deals with four levels of leadership and development within each of them—a volunteer who works with others, a leader who works through others, a director who works through teams and senior leaders who work through key leaders.
The book addresses discipleship, vision, strategy, collaboration, people development and overseeing resources, along with ministry-specific competencies, a person’s unique skills within a ministry area.
The heart of this book is discipleship—growing leaders and all that entails. You also will enjoy the appendix on discipleship from the perspective of Jesus.
Designed to Lead is a wonderful read for anyone interested in leading and developing leaders.
