What’s the Church Leader Collective?

Pastors often feel ill equipped for the administrative responsibilities of church leadership. The Church Leader Collective authors are committed to sharing successes, mistakes, and failures to the end of becoming more effective in our individual roles.

Distinctively, the Church Leader Collective employs the expertise not only of clergy but also of lay church leaders. We have discovered that these men and women often have more training and experience in administration, finance, and HR than we do.

Who’s it for?

Pastors, executive directors, academics, consultants, and lay leaders
