Small church expert Glenn Daman knows the challenges and rewards of small church ministry. His first book, Shepherding the Small Church, focused on the ingredients for an effective ministry in small churches. This follow-up book addresses the essentials for spiritual leadership in the small church. Pastors and other church leaders will benefit from the author’s insights within the context of the small church. Daman shows that contrary to today’s prevailing wisdom, the pastor’s role is not to be a visionary or organizational leader. The pastor’s primary responsibility is spiritual leadership through preaching and godly role modeling. Readers will come away with great insights into the important contribution small churches can make in the spiritual development of people in the church and in the community.
