The purpose of The Reformation of Church Leadership is to present a detailed study of the role and function of the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher, elder, and deacon as members of a ministering leadership team in the early church and layout a roadmap for its adoption in today’s church. Through investigating a forty-year history of the New Testament church, this book lays out the qualification, selection, and job description for each of these ministry positions and how they function together. By examining this data, a blueprint is presented for understanding God’s original intent for a successful, thriving church that will protect against the spiritual, mental, and physical burnout of senior leadership. The presentation seeks to draw a contrast between the leadership model of the New Testament church and the church of today.
Although primarily dealing with church leadership, an Application section is included in each chapter that enables all Christian readers to identify with the challenges in every church organization that fails to line up with the New Testament blueprint for church leadership.
