In Organic Leadership Neil Cole asks these questions and more, boldly challenging many of the ideas about leadership and church life that we all take for granted. Then he reveals how to grow leaders that multiply naturally.
^^^^"Organic Leadership will trouble you--but more importantly, it will challenge you. And you should read it because the church could use some troubling and a new challenge."
--Ed Stetzer, author and researcher
^^"A prophetic call for a more discipleship-based, grassroots, and inspirational form of leadership in our time."-
-Alan Hirsch, author, The Forgotten Ways and ReJesus; co-founder, shapevine.com
Is it possible that the division between the clergy and the laity is unnecessary and, in fact, harmful to the church? In Organic Leadership, Neil Cole fervently says yes and shows how this causes great harm to all. But rather than doing away with the clergy, Cole argues that the answer is to raise up organically grown leaders from ordinary Christians and make everyone "a priest."
Using examples from modern cinema, personal experience, and the Bible, Cole sets out to change our view of what a leader is and how one is formed. This fresh and revolutionary alternative will transform readers and equip them to challenge themselves and others to find the vision God has for them. Now available in trade paper.
